Project details: 

The Australian Technology Park (ATP) in Sydney’s Redfern is a scientific, research and development precinct on the site of the old Eveleigh Railway Workshops.

The ATP has a long history of industrial excellence and architectural flair, styled around the history of its humble beginnings. When APP was commissioned by ATP and the Redfern-Waterloo Authority to provide design management for the redevelopment of Building D, a commercial building, we approached the challenge head-on.

The impressive structure contains 12,000m2 spread over six floors, plus basement parking. The building was designed with external “cores” which located the building services plant, amenities, lifts and fire stairs at the edge of the building, resulting in large uninterrupted floor plates. Environmental considerations were also taken into account, including external sun shade louvres and the ability to use recycled water. The façade features unique Core-ten steel panels that reflect the industrial history of the ATP.

The ATP secured two pre-committed tenants for Building D during the design phase – the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO) and National ICT Australia (NICTA). The tenants used their own consultant teams to design their fitouts and as a result, a number of architectural and service components of the base building were modified to suit the proposed tenant works, requiring careful coordination of the three design teams.
