The ABC Headquarters at Ultimo was constructed in 1989, with a 13-storey office tower added in 2002. The building was occupied by approximately 3,000 ABC staff and was home to several radio stations and their flagship TV content – News24 and Q&A.
The key infrastructure consisted of:
Senior Project Manager, Brendan Smith’s roles were the overhaul of the UPS system, which involved the replacement of the existing UPS systems with a single, consolidated N+1 configuration that would support critical loads in the building.
Towards the end of the project, he completed a high-level audit of existing infrastructure and identified two high risk elements. One – the building had exceeded the nominal supply rating of two HV feeders. Two – cooling capacity at site had been reached.
Following the highly successful launch of Stage 1 of Global Switch Sydney East, we chose to extend our relationship with AREA3 from Stage 1 into Stages 2 and 3 due to their professionalism, knowledge of mission-critical infrastructure projects, and the high quality of their work
Your diligence throughout the project concept, design and construction is what helped the actual install go as smoothly as it did. You have all been a fantastic team to work with and we look forward to continuing our relationship with you all in the future.
We have found them to be very professional and thorough right from start to finish.They did a great job capturing the project requirements and were very attentive to our requirements... the new TB workshop looks amazing.
