Lump sum contract

Works included a design and construct contract with respect to the mechanical services of the space. The main chamber room required the delivery of several items of bespoke joinery, including a hand-made “Dharma Wheel” inset into the ceiling, which required significant structural support to accommodate its 200+kg weight.

A floating floor was created over the original concrete slab using Native Australian Blackbutt throughout the reception, bookshop, break-out area, kitchen, offices and teachers prep spaces. Inside the main chamber room, heavy statues were supported by the reinforced display case construction.
