The Project Brief

Csaba Kaposi headed up the design and construction teams for the refurbishment of the Landmark Building’s lower levels, which was scheduled to take advantage of a new Sydney City LEP.

The stated objective was to reposition the building as ‘A’ Grade office space to attract a higher rental stream, including additional retail and commercial space on the lower levels. This was physically achieved through increased FSR utilising the colonnade and mezzanine floor space.

Integration with the adjoining premises, 363 George St, was necessary to deliver a precinct environment. Walkways linking Barrack St to the void space achieved the integrated space objective.

The Challenges

Auric Project overcame challenges by utilising the flexibility afforded in the recommended integrated project and construction management delivery methodology. This meant that the challenges of continued operation of the upper office levels and the discovery of the stone façade separating from the building structure could be met successfully within the project parameters.

The Project Outcome

The project was completed while continuing operations in 2003 and was fully leased on completion.
