G James Glass and Aluminium


Eagle Farm, QLD


  • 7.839 ha block on Kingsford Smith Drive
  • Three 2 storey office buildings
  • Two linked external buildings for a re-melting facility and die-casting workshop for bespoke casts
  • Underground fire escape routes with tunnels that link the internal and external buildings

Project Highlights

  • The factory can store, die-cast and produce aluminium products using machinery and technology never before seen on this scale
  • Fire sprinklers weren’t an option due to the fact that Molten aluminium cannot make contact with water or it will grow 10x its size, instead a series of lasers and specially designed cameras were used
  • Fully automated shutdown procedure where all fuel is dumped into an underground chamber
