Design allows significant reduction in potable water use 

Marking the first stage in construction, the first sod has been turned on the site which will become Sydney Water’s new headquarters in Parramatta. Designed by international architects Denton Corker Marshall and to be built by Multiplex, the state-of-the art 17 storey office tower will provide 23,000sqm of office space. Speaking about the design, Director Bill Corker commented. “Our design is intended to reflect the ESD priorities of Sydney Water as a business, as well as display a contemporary and stylish imagery appropriate for the corporate aspirations of the company.” Managing Director of Sydney Water, Dr Kerry Schott added, “Multiplex is building one of the leading office designs of its type in Australia. “The design allows significant reduction in potable water use and greenhouse gas emissions, and represents value for money. “By using the latest technology, the building will cut greenhouse gas emissions by about 30 per cent, and use about 75 per cent less water than a standard commercial office building.” The design comprises two major components: a simple and clearly articulated tower form set on columns, housing Sydney Water’s office accommodation; and a four level podium, contained within the curtilage of the tower, which will provide special purpose areas including a cafe and a reception lobby purpose built for interface with the public.
