Veolia Environmental Services
Urban renewal and the preservation of historical buildings are both important components of Sydney’s architectural landscape. It was therefore an exciting design and build opportunity for Charter Build to refurbish the interiors of the iconic and beautifully preserved Jones Bay Wharf in Pyrmont, for Veolia Environmental Services. Our office fitout challenge was to integrate 21st century technology, design and infrastructure into the original heritage-listed steel and hardwood structure. We added a selection of our cost effective ‘green’ initiatives. These included adaptive re-use of the existing commercial furniture, new eco floor coverings and energy saving systems throughout the space. Completion dates, tight to meet our client’s occupation date, meant that we moved to a 7 x 12 hour shift work pattern to meet our contract obligations. The result was an office fitout completed quickly, safely and on time. We created a space with an elegant balance of old and new – a seamless pairing of innovation from both this century and the last.
