$110m Ingkarni Wardli Building

Following the successful delivery of the early works package, Hindmarsh were selected post tender to work through a value management process with the Client and the Design Team to agree a design that could match the available budget.

Hindmarsh developed a number of innovative cost saving ideas that the Client was able to select from to get the project underway.

This imposing building with a GFA of 17,200m2 over 8 floors and provides lecture, tutorial, conference and office spaces along with a large exhibition area beneath an EFTE inflated roof membrane, a cafeteria and numerous break out areas.

This is a statement structure, however, it is the integrated services features that attract attention. Thermal chimneys provide efficient airflow through the building at all levels. High thermal mass combined with active slab technology (hydronic cooling loops within the concrete floor) and under-floor air displacement ventilation ensures low energy consumption, with a tri-generation plant piped through the foundations to manage temperature changes.

The building is an intelligent and interactive space that will be used as an educational tool displaying data from building control equipment, monitoring energy usage and performance of structural elements via sensors in the structure and facades.

The Nation’s first 6 Star, Green Star Education v1 Rating Building Design was Achieved.
