Located in Melbourne’s Docklands, Medibank Place / 720 Bourke Street was designed as the new headquarters of health insurance company Medibank. The company from the onset had an aspiration to promote this building as a healthy workplace and began the design process with a strong focus on connectivity and the maximization of daylight, greenery and the circulation of fresh air. The center of the building has a large atrium allowing natural light to reach deep into the interior while stairways within the central void create common spaces and connectivity between the floors. Workspaces were intentionally designed to offer a verity of environments from quiet spaces, to collective hubs to wifi-enabled balconies, all of which are intended to encourage activity based working as employees are free to select their workspace preferences.
Eascom Electrical was engaged by Multiplex to provide the complete electrical package for the integrated base build & fit out for Medibank. This Design & Construct project was delivered on time & budget as the team worked in consultation with the Head Contractor, Service Consultants & other Trades for a successful outcome.
