Shellharbour Civic Centre
Our project was a 17,000m2 Civic Centre, which included a library, auditorium, council chambers, local history museum plus three levels of local government office space.
Northrop developed the electrical design from schematic stage through to practical completion.
We performed extensive lighting modelling to ensure the design would achieve a 5 Star Green Star As-Built Public Building v1 Rating, in keeping with the sustainability strategy for Shellharbour City Council.
Northrop completed NBN and datacomms designs as part of the electrical plans to incorporate the latest technologies and ensure that the Civic Centre would be of world class standard.
It was good experience for Northrop to be a part of the Green Star process from the other side of the fence, and to gain a better understanding of sustainable design in the public sector.
