Developing an environmentally sustainable building
The Main Roads transport agency within Western Australia wanted to relocate several of their departments into one facility located on Victoria Avenue, East Perth. The 1,950 square metre space, located on the second floor of a 6 Star, Green Star rated office, required our engineers to design support for an operable wall for a fit-out via framing and co-ordinate penetrations and floor boxes to be set into the heavily reinforced concrete slab.
Cooling was provided via chilled beams using the building’s central plant seeing our engineers modify the existing direct digital control building management system to suit the new air conditioning system, introducing supplementary units for the layout and interlocking with existing outside air fans for ventilation. The chilled beams deliver unusually low noise levels so internal partitions required acoustic consideration to achieve appropriate privacy throughout. Large screens were wall-mounted to facilitate monitoring of operations and discrete acoustic absorption at ceiling level mitigating noise in the open space without impacting line of sight.
Now complete, staff have a reliable, sustainable, and energy efficient office where they are equipped to do their best work.
