WSP was awarded the base building works through a longstanding client relationship with Brookfield Multiplex and the fit out works through subsequent engagement with Macquarie. Our multidisciplinary team worked in close partnership with main architect Clive Wilkinson Architects, and together with fit-out designer Woods Bagot and the construction team, to design 33,000 sq. ft. of ABW over 11 floors. One of the drivers for ABW was the occupancy efficiency that could be achieved.
As Macquarie Bank had emerged as the sole tenant at an early stage, the design team was able to customise the base building to meet the bank’s needs, satisfying Macquarie’s requirement for flexible and productive workspace, as well as fulfilling Brookfield Multiplex’s design brief.
Amongst Brookfield Multiplex’s key objectives was an expansion of the net lettable area and this was achieved by constraining the services zone on a floor-by-floor basis through the use of an innovative HVAC system leading to the creation of an extra floor in the building within a strict overall height limit.
