Built as the new headquarters of the Swiss pharmaceuticals company, this award-winning development was designed to minimise its impact on the environment, earning two 5 star ratings.

Novartis wanted to combine their four Australian offices into one campus. We constructed 9,885 sqm of A-grade office space, including a fully integrated fit-out, which can accommodate up to 800 staff.

The ultra-modern design was issued with a 5 Star Greenstar for the sustainable design, construction and operation of the building and fit-outs, as well as a 5 Star NABERS for the building’s energy efficiency, carbon emissions, water consumed, and waste produced. These ratings reflect our ongoing commitment to build better environments to work and live.

- Architectural Design Winner (2016)

- Commercial & Residential Architecture Category, Good Design Awards

- Sir Arthur G. Stephenson Award, Winner (2016), Commercial Architecture Category Australian Institute of Architects, New South Wales Chapter
