Sculptform’s Australian Embassy Project in Bangkok a Master Stroke
Sculptform (formerly Woodform Architectural) have been achieving great things both here
and overseas. Their click-on battens in Blackbutt and Spotted Gum were chosen by architects
BVN to create a stunning statement on the interior of the new Australian Embassy building in
Bangkok. The vertical battens soar to the top of an intriguing void and the view is reminiscent
of looking up to the outback sky from the floor of a tall tree forest.
Sculptform’s click-on battens are available in timber or aluminium, with a range of coatings
available for each. They are an innovative product that opens the way for limitless design
options. Quickly and easily fixed into place, the battens save significant time and money on
site. The system is suitable for walls and ceilings, permitting tremendous flexibility.
Innovation and technology are always close to the collective heart of the company. The
Sculptform Price & Spec tool provides access to an infinite array of possibilities. Users are
given real-time data across pricing, weights, fire compliance and acoustic performance for
their custom design. Any change made to the design is instantly reflected in the data.
Long-term Accurate Timber Products customers, Sculptform turn to Accurate for their tooling
needs and regularly consult the catalogue for knife steel. From time to time, they provide
drawings of the template they require, have it created at Accurate and Sculptform then shape
the steel accordingly.
Gerrard Scott of Sculptform says Sculptform’s relationship with Accurate is underpinned
by a shared passion for innovation and technology. “We see Accurate’s values as very closely
aligned with our own,” he explains. “Like us, they’re always looking for ways to do things
better and technology plays an increasingly important role in our industry.”
Focusing on click-on battens, tongue and groove cladding and façade blades, Sculptform
have been hard at work carving out their particular niche. The company’s battens were also
utilised in the recently completed Members’ area of the Victorian Racing Club at Flemington.
