Working alongside long-term partner Construction Control, Benmax successfully delivered the mechanical services for this impressive commercial building located at Brindabella Business Park, Canberra. At 35,000 m2, it is twice the size of any other office building located within the precinct, and its environmentally-advanced design supports a 5 Star Green Star rating and 5.5 Star NABERS base building energy rating.
With a condensed project timeframe, the experience and adaptability of the Benmax team was crucial in ensuring the unique operational requirements of the new government tenant were accommodated, while also meeting the stringent service specifications and strict security requirements.
