Dexus Funds Management
1 Margaret Street
A growing trend in the corporate world, End of Trip facilities are designated areas supporting employees using alternate ways to travel to work rather than driving or taking public transport. Long-term client Dexus approached Building Guild to provide such facilities for the A-grade building asset, located within the prime positioned 1 Margaret Street in Sydney’s Central Business District. Previously the space was an under-utilised basement, designed purely for plant and equipment to maintain the functions of the building. The new fit-out includes a locker room, bike racks, change rooms as well as men’s and women’s shower facilities and wellness space.
Designed to be functional and low-maintenance, yet specifying a range of high-end finishes, the job’s challenges were in the technical aspects of the build, rather than the aesthetics. Building Guild’s reputation for attention-to-detail and planning ensure that the complex project was executed to the great satisfaction of the client. Relocation of the building’s services as well as a comprehensive fit-out, all completed swiftly within the programme showcases Building Guild’s skill in project management.
With such a facility, less is more, with the space’s streamlined, understated yet modern design belies the project’s technical challenges. Building tenants are now able to arrive, shower and prepare for their day in a space which was once an unaccommodating space adjunct to a car park. The project at 1 Margaret Street Sydney was not only a success for the client, but for the team delivered by Building Guild.
