Projex Building Group were engaged by the CSIRO to manage the design and delivery of the Data 61 project. The purpose of this project was to upgrade the CSIT ground floor space into a functional facility to accommodate CSIRO Data 61.
The entire Ground floor, North wing of the CSIT Building was stripped out and transformed into an open plan flexible work environment. Collaboration spaces were created throughout the space to allow freedom and flexibility for users to work in a manner that suits their objectives. The design recognises the different ways of working between engineers and researchers, especially the need for quiet room as well as collaboration and meeting spaces.

A crucial design feature to the project was the metal pan feature ceiling. This element was made to order and had a 12-week lead time from the US. Prior to finalising procurement, consideration was needed to integrate the mechanical diffusers and feature lighting. Projex was able to finalise the details of this item and integration with services to maintain the 16 week program.

Critical to the success of the project was the management of a complex program requiring timely construction and commissioning, to ensure the milestone dates and client objectives were maintained.
