The largest, premium grade commercial tower constructed in Melbourne since 1990, this 26-level building at 567 Collins Street has a floor area of almost 55,000 square metres. At ground level, there is a dramatic, three-level high foyer area opening on to Collins Street, with extensive café and retail tenancies. Above that, two levels of health club, seven levels of podium campus offices, 15 levels of upper tower offices, and a special client floor on Level 26 with extensive views to Port Phillip Bay.
A lower ground floor accommodates approximately 160 car spaces, change rooms, locker amenities and a loading bay. Atriums are located on levels five through to eight and on Level 10, while service plant rooms are located on the lower ground, Level 3, and tower rooftop. Designed by the Spowers-Cox Architects Joint Venture to meet a 5-Star Green Star as-built rating and 5-Star NABERS energy rating, the building offers an efficient, effective and flexible environment to suit contemporary workplace needs.
Zutec was engaged to manage the very complex handover of this facility which included all Digital Operation & Maintenance Manuals. All information uploaded was brought through a workflow and validated by the various certifiers. The Digital Operation & Maintenance Manuals provided real time reports on the handover documentation progress which enabled Leighton to effectively track and capture all the required documentation in time for handover.
The Asset Register was also used to capture, manage and monitor the assets in one centralised repository. The asset data needed to be formatted in a bespoke structure to meet the COBie data requirement needs of the client.
The project also managed the collection and management of all defects data throughout the construction phase with Zutec’s Snagging & Defect Management "Onsite" application. The tool was used to capture all tasks such as snags, defects, observations, incomplete works, outstanding works and clean up notices and raise them against the responsible subcontractors.
