7 storeys of A-Grade Office

Targeting a 5 star Green Star rating and an A-Grade Office Design, ‘Workshop' is Milligan Group's visionary new business hub featuring flexible, light-filled open plan office space; abundant natural light; childcare; first-class end-of-trip facilities, retail and a gym.

The new 7 storey includes unique design features such as a large 15m span open plan office space (column free), off-form concrete walls and slabs with exposed services to provide a modern feel to the warehouse-style design.

The depth of the large spanning post-tensioned beams along with precast columns made this project a challenging prospect for both the Engineer and Builder. An efficient design meant that detailing and accurate installation was critical. The heavy glass façade loads on the 4.25m cantilevered edges created additional complexity by imposing tighter deflection tolerances on the design.
