IP Australia is intending to deliver the refit into 18,000m2 of the Discovery House property. In completing the refit, construction will be staged as to allow Discovery House to remain occupied and operational throughout the entire Delivery Phase.

Through the building refresh project, IP Australia is also seeking to:

 modernise the premises;

 enable the implementation of an activity based working environment;

 minimise the occupational density, ensuring that IP Australia is operating within 14m2 per person as required by the Department of Finance; and

 support the introduction of a childcare centre, and improved amenities and services (such as a café upgrade).

The building owner will also conduct a range of building upgrades works in parallel and the works are intended to be funded separately but delivered as one package, including a combined approach to design, and a single contract for a managing contractor to deliver the tenant and building owner works.

The Managing Contractor services will include the provision of construction management services relating to planning, programming, procurement of trade packages, site management, coordination, safety management, construction and commissioning of fit-out works.

The fit-out works include demolition, new fixtures, joinery, doors, ceilings, floors, finishing, furniture, workstations, appliances, doors and partitions, and electrical, mechanical, fire, hydraulic, communication, security and audio-visual services. These and additional works are detailed in the Project Brief attached to this document.
