Auckland War Memorial Museum - Architectural Metalformers | ArchiPro

Auckland War Memorial Museum

The Smarttray Custom Roofing wave dome is a unique project which will stand the test of time and Architectural Metalformers are very proud to hang their hat on it. Working closely with Noel Lane, Peddle Thorp Architects and Hawkins Construction, Architectural Metalformers created the 980 sqm copper “wave” dome for the Grand Atrium at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

The undulating copper roof and matching gutter is a unique achievement for our team. With only four of the 1760 copper panels on the Grand Atrium dome being the same measurement, the scale and complex detailing of the dome was heavily reliant on a CAD software system offering 3D imaging. The Architectural Metalformers team also devised innovative and number eight wire solutions for the different radii required for each panel.

Meticulous attention to detail, provision of product samples across the entire job and exhaustive hours of plotting on the CAD software has resulted in a dome the company is proud to call its own.
