The Rosebery Engine Yards project involves the adaptive reuse of an existing heritage building into a commercial office, childcare, and retail precinct with ancillary end-of-trip (including gym facilities) and parking facilities. The existing building has a saw tooth roof structure which is a feature of the Rosebery area.
The site is defined by three separate parcels. Parcel A includes the removal of every second steel column to make way for carparking, the childcare centre, cafe and retail in this space. Parcel B includes end-of-trip facilities, commercial tenancies, and a new loading dock and plant room. Parcel C includes the main entry, signage and external landscaped areas, new amenities, and the demolition of some existing mezzanines and retention of others.
A key element of the project is the heritage nature of the building. Taylor will ensure the integrity of the heritage elements of the project, which include the building fabric, structure, enclosure, windows and equipment, and will do so by carrying out a well- sequenced methodology that provides protection.
Goodman aims to achieve a 5 Star Green Star Design & As Built rating for the project in line with their company-wide Sustainability Strategy. Goodman is a leader in environmental social governance, and recognises that the sustainability initiatives inherent to Green Star provide improvement in occupant health, satisfaction, and well-being. Taylor will work closely with Goodman to ensure that this rating is achieved.
