Ausgrid Ku-ring-gai Pole Storage Depot

  • Sector
    Industrial
  • Client
    Ausgrid
  • Date Completed
    June 2012
  • Budget
    $6.5 million (including groundworks)

This pole storage depot was one of two significant Ausgrid projects completed in 2012. GWA were asked to assist with the detailed planning of a greenfield site with a natural topographic fall of over six metres from north to south. It needed to suit vehicular and pedestrian movements as well as the storage of poles, servicing, goods and materials. The design strategy was built around safety and security.

Whilst the building was to be predominantly a storage depot, the brief called for a commercial facility for operations staff, visiting operators and management representatives. They required comfortable, modern work environments and amenities. The site was subject to a number of stringent easements and other limitations such as bush fire prone land, sensitive flora and fauna.
