When leading global foodservice retailer McDonald’s builds a new restaurant, they rely on the best. Thus, a ModularWalls VogueWall barrier was specified on the plans by Richmond+Ross consulting engineers for this new store construction.
The development application (DA) for the site in Moss Vale came with council requirements of a perimeter acoustic barrier wall shielding the drive-thru and car-park activity from neighbouring residents. Given it’s a custom design McDonald’s store (that will not be replicated anywhere in Australia) specifically tailored to link the restaurant with the heritage and character of Moss Vale, aesthetics of the perimeter wall was critical.
The solution offered by ModularWalls was a 70 metre long x 2.4 metre high VogueWall utilising the sound reflecting and high impact resistant AcoustiMax75 panels, which provide a noise reduction of almost 30dBa. The whole wall was fitted to the top of the new core-filled block wall by core-drilling and grouting core-hole post receptors into the block wall. Because of its decorative and versatile design, the VogueWall barrier perfectly met the aesthetic requirements.
