St. Patrick's Church Lincoln

All Projects
Our team of Master Builders delivered an exceptional Decortech Panelling Package for the at St. Patricks Church refurbishment in Lincoln.  The church was damaged in the Christchurch Earthquake but is now a beautiful, architecturally designed building.

Decortech is a specialist decorative, acoustic & fire resistant panelling for walls and ceilings. 

Switched On Building Solutions is an approved Decortech installer in Christchurch and Wellington.

We supplied and installed 12mm Decortech Fire Safe MDF Panels to the cathedral ceilings at St Patricks Church. This project involved exacting attention to detail and precision workmanship due to demanding design specifications. 

Each area where the perforated panels sat needed to be individually measured to ensure we met the exact tolerance around the sheet as they are pre-cut in the factory and cannot be altered. Each of the non-perforated border panels had to be cut to size on site ensuring the grain all flowed in the same direction.

 We were required to create a 10mm negative detail feature around the edge of the area where the panels met the walls and beams and a 3mm panel around the edge.

We completed all of the blocking onsite which was painted black to accentuate the negative detail and also to fix the sheets using the concealed fixing slots. We also constructed a Louvre Screen to the reconciliation room.

This project took our team approximately 8 weeks and we engaged with Decortech directly to create shop drawings for architectural review and sign-off.
