Sustainability was a key driver for the refurbishment of 101 Miller Street, North Sydney, a premium grade building co-owned by Mirvac Group and TIAA CREF. Since 2007 this existing building has undergone a considerable upgrade with a holistic approach to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. This iconic building represents an award-winning retro-green asset, now capable of functioning for years to come without excessive energy inputs or substantial demolition waste generation.
The design, management and construction of 101 Miller Street’s new End of Trip amenities was entrusted to enfold who delivered an outstanding contemporary facility for the end user. Within the complex there is now storage for more than 170 bicycles conveniently located in the car park, with further refurbished bathrooms, showers and nearby staff lockers supplied by CSM Office Furniture Solutions who worked in collaboration with METRA locking systems to address user concerns and facilitate ease of use.
The touchscreen can access all three areas (Bike Rack, Male Change, andamp; Female Change), whereas the kiosks in the male and female change can only access their own area. The readers have been locked (in hardware) to the customer’s access card and won’t read common MifareTM cards (Opal, Miki, etc.) The locker reservations automatically expire overnight and coupled with a nightly automatic opening of all the lockers after the site has closed, allows for cleaning staff to come through and clear down the lockers.
“Following investigation and visits to the various EOTF it became obvious that the simple convenience of using one building access card was not generally available. As simple as it sounds, one access card for all available building services from the car park, building entries, lifts and available for tenancies was a must.
Tenants have the ability to reduce the number of tenancy and building services cards from three to one.
CSM and METRA Australia listened to what we believed to be achievable and provided a system capable of providing exactly what we wanted to achieve.”
