Located in the north-eastern sector of the Melbourne CBD, this A-grade building has 65,913m² of lettable area. It features 43 levels of office space and is owned by the Investa property group. Telecommunications giant Telstra has its Victoria State Head Office here and is currently undergoing a major refurbishing exercise, updating a large number of floors in association with Bovis Lend Lease.
Bovis Lend Lease approached Colt to supply and install automatic drop down smoke curtains to prevent smoke from the main foyer area entering the upper levels.
Colt supplied and installed its SmokeMaster SM5 smoke curtain to Level 1 and the raking side to provide a complete smoke barrier, which had to not be noticeable when it was retracted and not in use. The Colt system was installed, wired and commissioned in just seven days to comply with Lend Lease’s tight programme by Colt working out of hours to avoid disruption to the occupied building.
