ZINTL® brings community building in Geelong to life

Construction of the City of Greater Geelong’s new headquarters, Wurriki Nyal, is now complete.

Meaning “Speak and talk together” in Wadawurrung language, Wurriki Nyal is bringing teams spread across nine locations into the one building with a range of benefits for the organisation and the Greater Geelong community which also includes a new Customer Service Centre.


The five-storey development is built sustainably, with long-term efficiency in mind, honours Geelong’s heritage and Aboriginal culture and is inclusive and accessible.

Completed in September, the Wurriki Nyal Civic Precinct in City of Greater Geelong features 900 sqm of ZINTL® in Dark Bronze and Black Ace. ZINTL® has been utilised on the rooftop terrace, soffit and entryway of the civic precinct, showcasing the versatile use of this aluminium weatherboard.
