CSIRO consolidates resources in state-of-the-art office and laboratory facilitiesThis facility is part of the ACT Site Consolidation for CSIRO, being located at the Black Mountain Science& Innovation Park. The project delivers 15,000 sqm of world-class research and support facilities with purpose-built laboratories.
The new structure is essentially two buildings in one, with a carefully hidden junction.The modern office space links to the laboratory building through steel and glass bridges at each of the four levels.
To streamline construction the building walls, stairs and atrium ramps were designed as precast to eliminate complex temporary works and streamline the construction program.
Additionally, the three storey high chimneys' on the roof were prefabricated and lifted into place.
