Baines Masonry was chosen to supply the masonry content to FDC Constructions $110M project for William Inglis & Son to build a multipurpose, state-of-the-art, global centre of excellence for the display and sale of Australia’s outstanding thoroughbred horses that incorporates the latest technology in international real-time auction sales and the highest level of comfort and hospitality for its global clientele at Warwick Farm.
Known as ‘Riverside Stables’, the facility is established as a key venue in Western Sydney catering to a multitude of events and functions. The feature of the Warwick Farm precinct is a new 5 star luxury hotel, named The William Inglis, part of the MGallery collection by Sofitel.
Baines Masonry products were chosen because of their excellent qualities of finish, strength, tolerances and their high fire and acoustic capabilities. Baines supplied the masonry component of which the centre is built, including the vast number of facades used around and covering the centre. The blocks had to have the strength, durability and colour to blend in with the complex so as such, the chosen feature masonry was a smooth face in the AppinStone colour to highlight the stables and a retaining wall near the luxury hotel. The feature masonry has a silicone additive injected into the mix during production which helps supress efflorescence and provides a higher barrier to water penetration than masonry can achieve.
