The site comprises a 25 year old, three-storey office building, prominently and conveniently located close to Woden Town Centre. The client required a full building refurbishment to re-purpose the asset as a specialist medical centre.
Some of the key components of the construction work included:
• New main building entrance including a new entry canopy
• New lift and lift core at the new entrance
• New on grade carpark
• Redirection of main sewer line
• Full Electrical Upgrade including new main switchboard
• Full mechanical upgrade
• Extension of post tensioned mezzanine slab
The construction worked commenced with the ground floor tenant occupying the building. As such the redirection of the sewer main, construction of the new lift core, carpark work and services upgrades had to be closely managed to ensure the tenant was not disrupted as a result of the works.
Within this building, AMA Projects was also engaged to oversee the fitout of the Orthopaedics ACT offices on Level 2. The construction works were completed whilst the building was occupied and involved significant mechanical and electrical works.
The fitout is highlighted by the use of walnut timber veneer cladding in particular to the waiting and reception areas. As part of the relocation the surgeons elected to move away from traditional offices to a more open-plan and shared office environment with an adjoining breakout lounge and kitchenette. The construction works also involved significant mechanical and electrical works.
The new main switchboard was to be located within the existing ground floor tenancy. AMA proposed this to be externally mounted to building, so existing tenant would not be affected by new works, and programme milestones could be met.
Building refurbishment performed whilst ground floor tenant still in occupation. Noisy works and power shutdowns performed after hours to minimise impact on tenant operations.
