City West Police Complex, VIC
- Architect: Woods Bagot Architects
- Project Value: $230 Million
- Location: Docklands, VIC
After completion in 2015, the centre along with the City West Police Complex formed a custom-designed, integrated and recognisable precinct of exceptional function and quality that responds to the urban characteristics of the surrounding city context. Architectural firm Woods Bagot was able to execute the vision by designing an outstanding facility which adheres to many needs, welcoming innovative ideas and showcasing both local and international events. The project is highly impressive with ProBuild anticipating a $250 million completion. Rondo worked closely with Probuild and Express Interiors - we provided Seismic and high load bearing designs for all ceilings and walls. Our Rondo representative Charlie Khoury provided ongoing support and assisted on the project with design assistance and inspections a regular occurance.
To achieve the aesthetic wall heights, MAXIjamb® (0.75 & 1.15bmt) was nominated along with our DUPLEX® Internal Stud Framing System, Steel Stud & Track Framing System and KEY-LOCK® Concealed Ceiling System. The team provided weekly onsite inspections and technical support to initiate the fourth quarter and carry out the remaining works. The Police Centre includes a high level of environmental credentials targeting a 4.5 Star Energy and Water NABERS rating, together with a 5 Star Green Office Design rating. The build features an efficient side core design providing large open typical floor plates of approximately 2000sqm. Purpose built to accommodate Victorian Police operations, the centre will include a helipad and a firing range.
