Inspired by Design: Expertly Constructed And Crafted With Excellence

Since our establishment in 1970 Com-Al Windows have successfully completed projects both within Australia and throughout the Middle-East. 

We have completed a large number of projects in a range of industries not only in the Perth CBD, but also in Port Hedland, Karratha, Kununurra, Broome, Barrow Island, Jimblebar, Margaret River and Albany. 

These projects include commercial buildings, hospitals, shopping centres, churches, apartments, railway stations, shop fronts, car parks, recreation facilities, schools and mixed developments

Karrinyup Shopping Centre 

Location:  Karrinyup, WA

Client:  Multiplex

Com-al Windows has been extensively involved in the re-development of the Karrinyup Shopping Centre which saw the opening of its first phase in July, 2021. 

The $800 million re-development of the Karrinyup Shopping Centre commenced in late 2018 with our employees beginning works on site in mid-2019 working with the builder of the development – Multiplex.

Karrinyup Shopping Centre expanded its size from approximately 57,000 square metres to 113,000 square metres.

Com-Al Windows provided its own Com-Al Windows 150mm x 50mm front glazed systems with 10.76mm Clear Low E Heat-strengthened glass to achieve the thermal, acoustic and aesthetic requirements of the project.

Bifold doors were used to provide a seamless indoor and outdoor perspective to allow shoppers to experience the full entertainment and dining experience.

 

In addition to this, the Reynaers CW60 stick system was used in the main entry to achieve the spans and seamless look with 33.14mm Double Glazed Units all with Low E coatings.

Dormakaba Automatic Doors were installed throughout the project including the internal toilet facilities and also at the main access routes into and out of the shopping centre.

Pebble windows provide a technically challenging install but a unique perspective and aesthetic look on the building.

The second phase is due to open later this year in October, 2021.

Perth WA Museum Boola Bardip

Location:  Perth Cultural Centre, Perth City

Client:  Multiplex

Com-Al Windows was engaged to design a sophisticated, expansive glazed curtainwall with dynamic gold and silver-coloured optical effects to work in unison to contrast the existing historic and heritage-listed buildings with a new contemporary design.  The bold and distinctive design was achieved with an expansive glazed façade using the Reynaers CW60 Curtain Wall Stick System.

The highly insulated facade is given singular expression with a dynamic optical effect created by the Sefar gold and silver coated interstitial fabric mesh, laminated into the glass.  The fabric interlayer provides a textile appearance to the glass which creates a distinct appearance and an ability to create depth in a traditional two-dimensional glass surface. 

Com-al Windows worked for just over one year on the WA Museum with at times up to 40 personnel.  The project had a very high degree of difficulty with an elevated level of risks due to working with over-sized glass panels, working at heights and complex installation detail.  The company’s our high standard of its OHS processes enabled the successful installation of the curtainwall system without any major incident.

Other Projects

Faulkner Community Hub Com-al Windows

Belmont Hub

Location:  213 Wright Street, Cloverdale

Client:  Pact Construction

Com-Al Windows was instrumental in the construction of the unique architectural style façade system with curved and angled buildings of the Belmont Hub.

The Hub features a thermally insulated curved facade curtain wall which was achieved using Reynaers Aluminium ConceptWall 60-SC system and installed by our experienced glaziers.  This system incorporates a slim aluminium profile that was strategically placed to support the 17.52mm Low E toughened laminated glass panels. 

Com-Al Windows provided all the external glazing elements including the skylight, vertical feature sunshades and canopy sunshades.  Internally, the scope included the manufacture and installation of the automatic door entries, internal office partition frames and glazing, frameless spider fitting glazing to the internal library and glazing of the spectacular glass lift within the Atrium which points to the skylight above that is supported by a 20-tonne structural steel frame
