Rork Projects was engaged on a Construction Management contract, with the support of BSE for services & Bourke & Bouteloup for design to undertake an interior fit-out of two separable portions.
Separable portion one involved the demolition of existing offices, and the reinstallation of new ones.
The architecturally designed space featured heavy use of acoustic materials & natural timber.
Due to the nature of this building and the work that operates within, it was essential that services within the building were not interrupted. Any possible impact on the adjacent laboratory spaces, had to be planned and the occupants notified in advance.
Immediately adjacent to the construction site there was an x-ray machine running 24 hours & an animation laboratory sensitive to vibrations. These required management of construction works in the area to avoid or accurately communicate interruption to services and works involving structural vibration.
Separable Portion 2 is due to start late this year with the removal of combustible cladding and replacing it with non-combustible cladding.
As an Indigenous business, we proudly acknowledge that this project was completed on the traditional lands of the Boonwurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, Taungurung, Wathaurung and Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation.
