Acoustically Rated Top Mount Wall for Global Foodservice Retailer – McDonalds, Moss Vale, NSW

When leading global Foodservice retailer McDonalds builds a new restaurant they rely on the best and so Modular Walls Systems™ was specified on the plans by Richmond+Ross consulting engineers for this new store construction. The development application (DA) for the site on the corner of Robertson Road and Argyle Street in Moss Vale came with council requirements of a perimeter acoustic barrier wall shielding the drive-thru and car-park activity from neighbouring residents. Given it’s a custom design McDonalds store (that will not be replicated anywhere in Australia) specifically tailored to link the restaurant with the heritage and character of Moss Vale, aesthetics of the perimeter wall was critical.

The solution offered by Modular Wall Systems™ was a 70 metre long x up to 2.4 metre high VogueWall™ utilising the sound reflecting and high impact resistant AcoustiMax™ 75 panels providing a noise reduction of almost 30dBa. The whole wall was fitted to the top of the new core-filled block wall by core-drilling and grouting core-hole post receptors into the block wall. Because of its decorative and versatile design, the VogueWall™ perfectly met the aesthetic requirements.    Testament to the success of this acoustically rated wall is that Modular Wall Systems™ is now assisting the construction team with another acoustically rated wall at McDonalds in Bligh Park by providing a turnkey solution from concept drawings, detailed design through to installation.
