Chifley Tower is premium asset for Charter Hall and its high-quality and exemplary design makes it one of Sydney CBD’s prestigious buildings. To ensure it maintains this reputation as a premier commercial space, Charter Hall engaged Cox Architects and Renascent to upgrade nine floors throughout the tower.
Working alongside Cox Architects the project combined an opulent, art-deco vision with cutting-edge and innovative technologies. The prestigious building houses high-end financial tenants, so this commercial space required finishes that reflect its premium status.
The D&C project took place across nine floors throughout the commercial tower and involved significant upgrades of common areas, as well as tenancy make-good. Each floor had its own unique requirements to meet the differing expectations and occupancies of future and existing tenants. The high-level scope for each level included:
- Amenities L5, L10, L12, L14, L15, L20, L21, L22, L23
- Lift Lobby Upgrade L5, L15, L20, L21, L22, L23
- Tenancy Make Good L20, L21, L22, L23
- Mechanical Upgrade L23
- Stair extension L22-23
The lift lobbies and bathrooms were transformed into fresh and exciting spaces that featured cutting edge touchless technologies. The existing internal stairs from levels 20-22 were also extended to level 23, with an exact replica design that required custom cut glass imported from Germany.
The four-floor make-good portion of the project provided the incoming tenant with interim floor space ahead of their relocation to a neighbouring commercial tower currently under construction. However, with the tenant a high-end financial firm, this space needed to reflect their standing, and so premium quality materials and particular attention to finishes were essential.
In addition to the refurbishment of lobbies and amenities, the works also included an upgrade of the mechanical plant room.
The team was proud to be awarded a Master Builders Association Award for this project in the category of Refurbishment, renovation extension - $10m to $15m.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
