An awning’s age along with recent weather conditions are some contributing factors to structural failures and can pose a significant public safety risk.
Located in the heart of the Sydney CBD, 9 Hunter St is a 17 level office tower with a multi-tenant profile situated above one of the city’s busiest food courts.
CORE was engaged in 2019 as part of plans to undertake a major refurbishment of the lobby area that would include upgrades and alterations to the commercial entry to the existing building, inclusion of a new accessible ramp, fire safety upgrades, shopfront and awning along with bespoke finishes to the foyer and lift lobby interiors such as the undulating ceiling, double-height glass façade and portal lighting.
The objective of the works was to enhance the environment and areas available for lease with cutting edge design, transforming the ground level of one of Sydney’s best situated office towers.
6 months – design
12 months – construction
CORE – a partner of choice
As a multi-disciplinary consultancy, continuously adding value throughout the building’s lifecycle, CORE were well equipped to deliver an end-to-end project solution.
Over an 18-month period, our team in conjunction with our project partners delivered all major structural and building services works achieving significant aesthetic, functional, accessibility and safety improvements for tenants and staff alike.
Setting the building apart, one of the most impressive design features is the change from a single-height to a double-height facade which required the complete relocation of major services. Complemented by architecturally designed, undulating dowel with dowel and entry portal lighting designed by CORE, the lobby is the perfect example of design and functionality aligned.
