Client: The University of Melbourne | Contract: $1.9M | Duration: 13 weeks | Architect: Hatz Architects | Procurement: Design & Construct - Fixed Lump Sum
The University of Melbourne, a long-standing client, awarded Tandem the two staged project of the VCA Print Workshop at their Southbank campus. The project deliverables centred around the school calendar and the direct requirements of the end user group. While being architecturally appealing, the practicality of the space required our project team to develop an indepth understanding of the machinery and printing process used within the space. The project scope involved the fit out of an existing warehouse, which set the foundation for the new print workshop, intricate mechanical extraction and compressed air systems, as well as creative architectural elements for accoustic and temperature control. Stage two of this project included the new build of a storage facility, where the design comprised of various angles of roof lining and cladding, making pre-planning and coordination of the structure paramount to ensuring the design intent was delivered. Through diligent management of our subcontractors and key stakeholders, Tandem successfully brought the vision to life for the designer and end user group.
