Westpac Barangaroo Fitout - Office SpaceSydney, NSW
The Westpac fitout is located in Tower 2 (T2) of the iconic International Towers Sydney, Barangaroo. This commercial fitout across 27 levels occupies approximately 60,000 sqm and incorporates podium, low-rise and mid-rise levels. Interconnecting stairways between these levels encourage staff movement and improved connectivity. This is currently the largest fitout to target a GBCA 6 Star Interiors rating using the new pilot tool.
Westpac engaged Norman Disney & Young (NDY) in early 2012 for Mechanical, Electrical, Communications and Security Services, with subsequent engagements for Acoustics and Engineering Commissioning Services (ECS). NDY also acted as the lead consultant, facilitating coordination via 3D modelling with other consultants that included Architectural, Fire & Hydraulic services, Specialty Lighting and Audio Visual.
In addition to modifying the base building systems, NDY were involved in developing options for locating active chilled beams and swirl diffusers above various types of ceilings to enable an integrated mechanical solution to compliment the proposed architectural solutions.
By adopting an agile working environment, Westpac has been able to allocate an additional 20% more people to the fitout than workpoints.
Floors have also been broken down into neighbourhoods to create a sense of belonging and human scale. Each neighbourhood contains quiet rooms, informal collaboration spaces, personal lockers, storage and utility spaces to assist with day-to-day operation.
