Rork Projects was engaged by Sentinel and Colliers to refurbish and upgrade the overall aesthetic and functionality of the Scarborough House lobby, as well as installing and enclosing the facility’s generator.

The lobby upgrades included the installation of joinery, new floor tiles, painting, and a lighting upgrade. These improvements aimed to create a more secure, visually appealing, and well-lit lobby space.

Simultaneously, the generator project focused on constructing an enclosure for a 605kVa CAT Generator. The construction tasks involved demolishing a planter bed, building blockwork walls, applying render and paint, waterproofing the structure, installing a steel roof, concrete plinth, mechanical ventilation, lighting, and door hardware. A key requirement was the cutover and commissioning of the generator, which required coordination with Evo Energy and the tenant of Scarborough House.

A challenging aspect of the project was the commissioning of the generator and investigating load shedding to enable the seamless transfer of power to the tenant side. Despite the complexities involved, the team successfully managed the process.

The standout achievement of the project was the flawless installation and cranage of the generator into position. Given the limited tolerance and room for error with the enclosure structure and concrete plinth, meticulous planning ensured a successful installation, showcasing the team’s expertise and attention to detail.

As an Indigenous business, we proudly acknowledge that this project was completed on the lands of the Ngunnuwal people.
