CSIRO project set to raise the roof

Rork Projects was engaged by CSIRO late last year to provide Head Contractor Services for an early works package for Building 2/79 at the Black Mountain Science and Innovation Park in Canberra.

The project is part of CSIRO’s ACT Consolidation Project Phase 2 and entails internal alterations and demolition, roof replacement – including installation of new walkways and strengthening for future installation of solar panels.

With more than 5000 staff, CSIRO is Australia’s national multidisciplinary research organisation and plays a vital role in enhancing collaboration within the Australian innovation system and as a trusted advisor to government, industry and the community.

CSIRO’s 37.3-hectare Black Mountain campus is the longest serving science site in Australia and the ACT Site Consolidation Project is part of CSIRO’s 20-year master plan.

Rork Project’s ACT General Manager Scott Lamb has welcomed the opportunity to work with CSIRO as part of their ACT Consolidation Project.

“It’s thrilling for Rork Projects to be involved in the upgrade of CSIRO’s Black Mountain Campus as the buildings are not only part of Canberra’s heritage but the Black Mountain Science and Innovation Park will help redefine how Canberra is perceived as the century unfolds.”

The project completion is due in late March 2018.
