Gold coast, QUEENSLAND, Australia
Construction of the Jewel Towers is underway and progressing well on the beach shores of Gold Coast, Australia, and scheduled to be completed in 2019. Wanda Group and Ridong Group joined together as the two developers in this $1 billion venture of the three towers. Two towers will serve as residence towers and one as a hotel. Designed by DBI Architecture, when complete the Jewel Towers will be a seen as a landmark of the Gold Coast. The shimmering and angular design of the towers resemble the smoky quartz crystals found in the region. This development is helping to meet the high demand for luxury quality living, while supporting the tourism sector of the economy.
Trim-Tex’s own Technical Sales Representative, Noe Perez, visited the Jewel Residences on site to learn more about the Australian commercial processes. “I was extremely impressed by the work and professionalism of the contractors. The installation and work was top notch”, praised Noe. Trim-Tex is pleased to report that the Contractors Yuhu Group and Superior Walls and Ceilings are using several of our products during construction and development.
The Flat Tear Away is used to create a finished edge where drywall terminates at other substrates or building components such as windows and doors. It features a tear off strip that acts as a guide for the taping knife as well as a protective mask for mudding. The Magic Corner Expansion Bead was also used during development. This product is used on any inside corner where movement is an issue to prevent cracking, like in high-rise buildings such at the Jewel Towers, and eliminates edge cracking on all off-angle walls and vaulted ceilings. It can also be used to permanently fix cracks in existing cathedral and vaulted ceilings.
The Architectural L Bead & Archway was another product used in construction. This L Bead is used for multiple purposes; to finish the exposed edge of drywall, it’s great to use around duct work and piping, finishing columns, curved walls and soffits. Lastly, the Dual Angle Dual Grit Sanding Block was used. This Sanding Block is for simplifying sanding and radius edges to prevent gouging and scuffing of compound. It is also 40% larger than standard blocks, measuring at 5” x 31/4”.
