SHAPE was appointed to complete a single floor & highly detailed 6-star Greenstar and Wells/Nabers project on level 7 in Tower 3 Barangaroo for AUSTRADE.
Key challenges on this project included the acoustic design with ceilings and partition walls as well as achieving the 6-star Greenstar rating. Our team worked closely with the acoustic consultant and Greenstar consultant to come up with a design solution to meet the acoustic and Greenstar requirements. With a highly detailed scope and challenges along the way, the project ran smoothly and reached successful handover in a timeframe of 10 weeks.
The Austrade fitout was completed with a fully equipped indigenous reception desk, high tech Audio Visual services and an enormous breakout area with integrated boardrooms.
The SHAPE team worked closely with the client to move towards a sustainable outcome. SHAPE sourced and made use of sustainable products and timber cladding as well as the use of low-impact materials for the natural stone and timber to provide statement features across the fitout. We had a limit of just 2.5 tonnes that could go to landfill and by completion, had only sent 800kg to landfill. A huge 14 tonnes of waste was recycled.
We took this opportunity to expand on our processes and strategies so that we can continue to build sustainable practices within the construction industry.
