Located at the end of a runway the Lquid Oxygen facility at Richmond RAAF Base west of Sydney, Australia, is not your everyday building. A building with a unique form compared with other buildings scattered around the military base.
Liquid oxygen or LOX, performs a specific task for the Royal Australian Air Force. It tests, maintains and services the oxygen (and nitrogen) used on military planes.
"The new facility had to accommodate LOX liquid," architect Guy Luscombe of Campbell Luscombe Folk Lichtmam Architects said. "It has two main functions, storage and maintenance."
Forbo Colorex tiles with its leading conductive properties were selected for the facility and laboratories to comply with strict safety and performance criteria along with durability and ability to handle heavy loads.
