ASB North Wharf joinery by Sage Manufacturing

Made to fit – joinery by Sage Manufacturing


There are many stand-out interior features of the ASB North Wharf development – from the decorative wall panelling to the expansive kitchens and custom banquette seating that can be seen on almost every level.

Sage Manufacturing, a custom joinery specialist, was contracted to manufacture a large amount of joinery, including café counters, 13 kitchens, numerous feature wall panels and all the fixed seating. This is manufactured from environmentally friendly MDF board covered with high-pressure laminate and upholstered seats.

Project manager Trevor Antunovic says the work included collaborative seating areas. "There was not much about this job that was simple or straightforward, and everything needed to be of a very high standard," he says. "Sage Manufacturing was involved early on the design process, working with the design team to develop the working drawings. This was particularly helpful, especially in light of the sheer volume of work and the need for close co-ordination. During the six months of installation we had 2-3 truckloads of joinery arriving on site each week, as well as van loads."

Other special features by Sage Joinery included curved pine ply panelling in the executive areas, timber posts in the entry lobby, and more than 1000 lockers with Trespa doors that can be personalised by each worker. Sage Manufacturing also fabricated the air attenuator panels, which required more than two million drilled holes.
