This project involves the construction of a new two-story, purpose built 1700m2, corporate headquarters for E-TEC Power Management using Smart Building Solutions in order to maximise energy efficiency. The completed building will provide a high tech hub which will incorporate new training and demonstration
facilities. The scope includes ultra-modern and flexible Office & Laboratory fitout. The new building encompasses a corporate boardroom, cellular & open plan offices, laboratory & welfare facilities together with extensive storage for end product.
In order to create a distinct sustainable & modern identity, Caulfield Wright Architects, in conjunction with Loscher Moran Engineers, designed a building incorporating many bespoke architectural features & natural finishes. The structure includes; exposed pre-cast concrete columns supporting Glulam timber structural beams. The building has an insitu concrete shear wall acting as its central structural spine. The external facades include high performance curtain walling together with cement board on rail cladding system. Internally, the Glulam beams are exposed in a dynamic grid supporting an exposed cross laminate timber (CLT) roof. The design intent of incorporating Glulam beams and the CLT roof, due to their low thermal mass, helps deliver a greener & most sustainable building, thus reducing heating bills by absorbing little space heating energy.
