Quays Hope Island - Partiwall®

A leading residential development group on Queensland’s Gold Coast has discovered the benefits of Knauf Partiwall® System for multi-residential complexes.

Sunland Group is a development company that operates in both the housing and high rise division, building about 600 to 700 homes a year. Founded on Queensland’s Gold Coast in 1983, it was Publicly listed in 1995 and has offices in Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast in addition to its Brisbane headquarters.

At the heart of Sunland’s enduring commitment to creating ‘architecture as art’ is its vision to build vibrant communities and, in turn, shape a sustainable future. Its design philosophy and values work hand in hand to engage, transform and define the experience of ‘community’ for future generations. About nine years ago Sunland started looking for a company to provide fire-rated party walls that could meet its requirements. USG Boral Partiwall® System fulfilled a lot of criteria it looked for – especially the technical criteria. It now forms part of Sunland’s construction methodology and they are very happy with it.

As Riaz Rezvani, Housing Manager for Sunland Group says, “It saves us time, it saves us money and it gives us a product that we can rely on.”

One Sunland Group project that used the USG Boral Partiwall® system was Quays Hope Island – a premium collection of 40 townhouses surrounding central parkland. Nestled into lush, green surroundings within the established environs of Hope Island, each three-bedroom residence is generously proportioned for contemporary open plan living. North-east orientation naturally captures the light and warmth with large windows, alfresc entertaining areas and beautifully landscaped gardens.

Riaz Rezvani points to the value of the relationship Sunland Group has built with USG Boral.

“We do use a lot of companies, but USG Boral really understand us. The way we operate is like a partnership. Through their representative, they’re always there, and if you need any technical advice, they always send somebody or the representative comes to our site and can provide us with technical knowledge or installation processes. This is quite important for us because we are confident in the way we install it and any technical issue is resolved straight away.”
