EJE Architecture was engaged by Bradken to assist with the design of their new Global Headquarters located within Steel River industrial park in Mayfield West. The new facility brings together all the Bradken divisions in one facility allowing for the cross pollination of ideas in the design, development and testing of mining, rail and industrial equipment. Central to the design was the main atrium space. This space allows all the divisions to interact whether it be in the training rooms, meeting rooms, main cafeteria, or simply in the central circulation spine. This central atrium is reinforced in the external form of the building highlighting the entry both from the public carpark as well as staff carpark. A dislocation of the plan about this spine also provides movement and interest.
