JHA SERVICES | Electrical, Mechanical, Fire, Communications & Security Services
Project consisted of the design and construction of a new office building, and refurbishment of an existing heritage facility that is integrated into the new extension. JHA were engaged from the design phases of the project for mechanical and electrical services including dry fire, communications and security, and were involved from project inception at master planning through to construction phase support.
Working within the heritage facility presented a number of challenges, with presence of asbestos and numerous architectural feature elements with high heritage value.
The JHA team worked with the architects to provide new services for mechanical and electrical that were concealed in non-heritage locations, and achieving cost efficient outcomes for exposed services that blended in with the architectural intent.
JHA also undertook site infrastructure analysis, and delivered infrastructure upgrades to electrical power and communications systems, as well as master planning the site for future stages of upgrades for the client.
