Modular Solution Halves Acoustic Wall Costs for Retirement Home

The developer needed to install an effective acoustic wall for a retirement village located in the recently created suburb of Leppington in the southwest of Sydney, due to its close proximity to Camden Valley Way. Camden Valley Way is a key arterial route leading to the M5 and the Hume Highway; it is slated for expansion into a triple carriage motorway, further increasing traffic and noise pollution. The developer placed strong emphasis on the aesthetics of the wall, given that the retirement village is designed to provide occupants with a pleasant living environment. Costs and ease of construction were other key factors for the project, given that curbs and concurrent development of drainage systems would impede the use of heavy equipment.

The total price tag of our modular alternative was less than half that for a traditional masonry or concrete noise wall of the same dimensions. The VogueWall noise barrier runs for a lineal distance of 400 metres and rises to a height of 3 metres. AcoustiMax75 panels ensure that residents of the retirement village are effectively spared from the roar of nearby traffic.

One of the chief advantages of the VogueWall is its aesthetic impact, offering the polished appearance of a rendered masonry wall upon completion. The lightweight, modular design of the acoustic wall greatly facilitated a quick and easy installation.

Work on the wall wrapped up roughly a week ahead of schedule, with the entire installation process from site mobilisation to exterior painting taking less than five weeks in total. In addition to rapid installation and an aesthetically pleasing appearance, the entire project also proved to be highly economical.
