Meinhardt helps clients to realize their project aspirations through designs that are commercially successful, highly buildable and sustainable.
Client: Building Commission and Plumbing Industry Commission
Architect: Bligh Voller Nield
The new headquarters for the Building Commission and Plumbing Industry Commission is located in the heritage railway shed on Collins Street in Batman’s Hill.
Now known as Goods Shed North, the facility was restored and refitted as a contemporary ‘A’ Grade office space with an accredited 5 Star Green Rating and 4.5 Star NABERS Energy Rating.
It is Victoria’s first historic building to be awarded a 5 Star Green Rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, showing what can be achieved using sustainable technology and design.
Meinhardt provided development assessment services, ESD and Building Services design and administration for both Commissions.
