    Judge's Comments:

    This J.N.C upgrade project celebrates the adaptive reuse and redevelopment of this 1888 heritage derelict building into a revitalised community centre at the heart of Woolloomooloo. The intricate architectural and interior design involved major refurbishments, services upgrade, new lift installation and extensive street works. A number of construction difficulties were encountered. Collaboration between stakeholders was required to determine the easiest resolution in dealing with the retention and conservation of significant heritage elements, the demolition and restoration of the floor structure plus the onsite fabrication of structural steel element and timber frame roof trusses. The interior finishes of polished concrete and timber flooring, exposed concrete walls and exposed featured timber roof framing and batten linings, complement the overall finish of the project. 
    Growthbuilt delivered a complex detailed project on time, on budget with an outstanding result for all parties involved. A quality project with high-end quality finishes.
