Project details: 

APP Project Manages BHP Billiton’s New Commercial Headquarters.

BHP Billiton will be the head tenant in one of APP’s latest office developments, 171 Collins Street Melbourne, a building which will be a landmark in terms of quality, finishes and green credentials.

The building is now home for the new headquarters of BHP Billiton, and has a mix of boutique food and beverage and fashion retail tenancies, as well as an eight-storey boutique office complex that forms part of the retained Heritage façade along Collins Street.

"It was a truly a privilege to be able to work on such a project, one that no doubt will reinvigorate the top end of Collins Street, and stand the test of time as a high-quality, environmentally sustainable, high performing development for the building owners and their tenants alike.

"APP’s depth of recent experience in high quality commercial office projects held the team in good stead, but the whole project team met every challenge and really performed, which is a credit to everyone involved”, says Chris Freeman, Project Director for APP.

Based on APP’s experience in recent large-scale commercial office accommodation projects, APP was appointed in 2010 by the joint venture of Cbus Property and Charter Hall Office REIT, to provide Project Management and Superintendency services for the design, procurement and construction phases of the development.

There were several challenges – the rigour of working within a tight high profile site, completion of the project to meet the occupation guidelines, superintendency of the builder, and achieving a high standard of quality control to meet the design aspirations.

APP have provided effective project management to enable the building design to reduce waste, site pollution and energy consumption, by developing a strategy to reduce building time and manage the site more efficiently.  Our Cbus client puts the success of the project down to the trust and teamwork that developed within the project team, led by APP.
