CSR began production of Hebel in Australia 30 years ago and still remains the only local manufacturer of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete in Australia and New Zealand.

With growing demand for new residential estates, retirement facilities, terraced housing and commercial developments, CSR Hebel needed to increase it's capability to service the needs of the construction market which now regards Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (ACC) as a mainstream building product, providing customised solutions for walls and floors.

Planning for Hebel's new state-of-the-art facility began over four years ago, and the focus remained on the local economy and minimising the carbon footprint.

The Challenge

Crossmuller was tasked with designing and constructing a new facility which would enable Hebel to double it's current capacity in response to the growing market demand for it's products.

Features of the new facility had to ensure a strong focus on minimising the carbon footprint such as zero waste water through efficient recycling, and preserving a protected species of flora by allocating a portion of the land as a conservation zone.

The project was inclusive of building works, manufacturing installations, mechanical, hydraulic, electrical and systems integration.

The Solution

The new-state-of-the-art facility borrows the best technology from around the world and combines it with decades of local knowledge and expertise to showcase the best in AAC automation, customisation and environmental waste management.

This new facility has allowed Hebel to double it's current capacity and continue to service the growing demand of the Australian construction market for innovative, quality building products.
