|Location:||Australia - Canberra|
- Research / education facility
- New construction
- 12,000 sqm six storey facility
- State-of-the-art design
Working in partnership with Construction Control, Benmax successfully completed the mechanical services for the state-of-the-art ANU Research School of Social Sciences building located in Acton, Canberra. The 12,000 sqm facility has been designed to adapt to future workplace, teaching and learning advancements while providing the collaborative and multidisciplinary research and education environment required for today.
A key component of this project was the use of prefabricated and preassembled equipment by the Benmax team. This process was utilised throughout the build and supported improved delivery time frames and safer delivery on site. This was particularly important when the building was impacted by a largescale hailstorm event sustaining significant damage, including to the completed roof top plant room. Large scale repair work was required including our team needing to disassemble the damaged plant, prefabricate and install all new work. The prefabrication process allowed the team to undertake rectification works in a timely manner exceeding the expectations of the builder and client.
Benmax completed work on this project in September 2020 and is proud to have supported the Australian National University to deliver another world class education facility.
