The Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub is a state of the art facility located next to Banyule’s iconic art-deco Town Hall in Ivanhoe. The $23m project offers a host of much needed facilities aimed at supporting learning, culture and increased community engagement around the greater Ivanhoe council area. The building and associated outdoor plaza provides flexibility and multipurpose spaces to suit a wide range of community needs.

DTAC had been proudly selected on the project by offering a bespoke solution delivering on both the form and functionality elements of the development. Special attention had been tailored to ensure our range of products met the design criteria, responding sensitively to the heritage value of the existing Town Hall, which is on the Victorian Heritage Register.

DTAC was contracted by Buxton Construction to supply and install a variety of tactile ground surface indicators (TGSI’s) and stair edging solutions. Among the products installed was DTAC’s renowned Corduroy stair edging in black anodized (DE0110B) as well as the carpet system variant in gold anodized (DE0630G).

The popular profile achieves an R12 slip resistance classification and proves to be a cost effective NCC compliant solution, tested to both AS 4586 and AS 1428.1. DTAC also supplied and installed DT0300 brass TGSI’s at various locations and substrates across the site.
