Lake Macquarie City Council Administration

Lake Macquarie, NSW

The impact of COVID on Lake Macquarie City Council presented an opportunity to refurbish their Speers Point Administration building. While staff worked from home, the full building refurbishment was completed in one go, rather than complicated stages in a live site environment.

The upgrade includes a complete refurbishment of offices, meeting rooms, staff areas and associated facilities over three stories of an existing building. The development utilises clever integration and coordination of new and existing services to create a sustainable work environment incorporating modern & emerging digital technologies. Internal spaces are tailored to suit a new dynamic work culture whilst maintaining flexibility for future growth with department navigation and wayfinding being an integral part the office planning. Fit-out selections draw inspiration from the local natural environment creating a link to the landscape in which the Council is situated.
