Proud Partner of the Western Force
The phasing of the construction works to allow Water Corporation personnel to remain fully operative throughout the duration of the works was essential to the client. Once the new section was completed and fully operational, all staff were relocated from the existing offices into the new section. The existing offices were then completely stripped of all services, internal walling, ceilings and finishes, and re-fit and finished to match the new build specification. Mechanical plant was replaced with new to four roof plant rooms The electrical services upgrades included new Western Power transformers, site main boards and distribution boards. Two backup generators were installed to maintain a power supply to the building. Communication networks are critical to the operation of the centre and two interconnected communications rooms were insstalled.
The external works included new road ways and extensive landscaping to the site. The civil works comprised the construction of the main access road and parking, as well as a rear car park for the lower ground area. Extensive new landscaping was installed all around the site and included an irrigation system supplied through a rainwater tank, mass plantings, numerous trees, six outdoor areas with timber decking and planting, hard landscaped areas consisting of a mix of aggregate concrete paths and compacted gravel in different colour combinations and a bocce court.
The fundamental requirements that were considered essential to the client for a successful outcome of the project included:
