Forrest Centre is comprised of two A grade office buildings totalling 31,000m². The main office tower located at 221 St Georges Terrace boasts 30 levels of premium office space, whilst 219 St Georges Terrace offers seven levels of premium office space. Between these two office towers is the historical Rigby’s Tavern and Function Centre.
Project Restriction and Issues
Recently, the building upgraded its infrastructure to improve energy efficiency and offer premium grade services. However, the design of switchboard room only allowed cable penetrations from the ceilings due to the constraints in space.
For electricians to effectively install and maintain switchboards, front and rear access are required.
Price Trandos Engineering was contacted as the premier custom manufacturer. Through collaboration and valued engineering, we were able to offer a creative solution:
* Build a switchboard with centre access
Which enabled our client to supply a fully compliant, fit-for-purpose, board that overcomes the spatial constraints.
