Continuing our desire to work on interesting and innovative construction projects, BSE is proud to have been involved with the development and delivery of the Penrith Panthers Academy building. The Panthers Rugby League Academy was opened by the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull MP, Prime Minister of Australia. This $22 million state-of-the-art facility consists of two full-size all-weather training fields, two gymnasiums, hot and cold plunge pools, a 61-seat team auditorium, medical rooms and a number of recreational areas for players and staff. Built on a site of about 40,000sq m by Brookfield Multiplex, the centre was finished three months early and met the $22 million budget. BSE delivered multi discipline building services engineering for the design phases before being novated to Brookfield Multiplex for construction services.
Congratulations to our BSE Brisbane team for their engineering input on a project that recently received a commendation at the Australian Institute of Architects Brisbane awards.
On the QUT Q Block Redevelopment, BSE worked in conjunction with DWP Suters Architects and provided all of the building services design engineering for the 9 level, 8,000 sqm, redevelopment of the 40 year old building into a state of the art life sciences teaching facility for QUT.
The project can now be entered into the AIA State awards
BSE has been delighted to be the engineering consultant delivering the design for the LinkedIn Sydney office fitout. We went back to take a look 12 months after occupation, and the space is looking great!
LinkedIn created an Australian themed office concept in Martin Place, Sydney over 3,600 sqm that included an indoor BBQ, standing desks and a cinema / live action sports arena used to host monthly conferences among other events.
The move happened approximately one year ago and there has been an overwhelming response from the LinkedIn staff. The space encourages the teams to have informal discussions between colleagues within and across units giving a positive working environment.
The professional social-networking site's mission statement is to 'connect the world's professionals to make them more productive and successful' giving people access to jobs, news, updates and insight into what will help a user get the best possible information when applying for a job.
BSE is pleased to have helped deliver this project and play our part in the LinkedIn revolution.
