Lump Sum Contract




3 Weeks


Level 4, 18 Smith St, Parramatta

data sheet

The Australian Electoral Commission opened its new office in Parramatta amalgamating three sub branches into one.

The tenancy, on L4 of 18 Smith Street, was previously a carpark level within the building. This presented several challenges including dealing with floor levels and the reticulation of services within the new restricted ceiling void. A short threeweek on-site construction period compounded these challenges.

Designed by IA Group, the project included several design features including:

  • A dedicated communications room tailored to government specification
  • Staff breakout and kitchen area
  • Training and meeting rooms with separation via operable wall
  • Hearing loop installation
  • Audio visual and video conferencing installation
  • Open plan workstation areas

Engaged as Head Contractor for the works, Graphite Projects worked closely with building management, services engineers and IA Group to find innovative solutions to these issues. Delivery of the project was on time without any cost overruns.
