The name says it all with this project. The end-of-trip facilities at the CBW building are named ‘Refresh’. Our fit-out was designed to contribute to a facility that would refresh and revitalise the office workers at this 26 level office building located in the legal and financial hub of Melbourne’s CBD.

A total of 602 PS2 lockers were installed, together with attached black stained timber bench seating. The locker doors were constructed using Laminex ‘Alaskan’ panels, with gold edging from Hranipex and custom locker numbering utilising gold acrylic paint filled discs. Ojmar OCS Touch Locks were fitted to each locker. The total effect is clean, stylish and quite striking. Alongside the lockers, the fit-out at CBW also included ironing board units, towel storage, and airing cupboards.

A particular challenge for the team with this project was the installation of the bulkheads, due to the number of multiple services, ducting, fire sprinkler pipes and vent grilles overhead. In most cases the space above each locker bank had to be first surveyed, then the bulkhead custom cut and fitted to each individual design.

The CBW building is well known for its distinctive, dynamic architecture and stylish interiors. The Lockin end-of-trip facilities fitout at ‘Refresh’ is a worthy continuation of that eye-catching aesthetic.

Why install end-of-trip facilities?

In Australia, an increasing number of developers are incorporating end-of-trip facilities into new buildings including offices, apartments, shopping centres and hospitals. Many older buildings are also now incorporating these highly prized amenities as a part of major refurbishments. These changes are taking place in response to the rising number of individuals who want to use alternative methods of travel, such as cycling, jogging or walking. End-of-trip facilities are likely to include provisions such as showers, bike storage, change rooms and storage lockers.

In a time of greater environmental consciousness and increased awareness of the benefits of an active lifestyle, the provision of end-of-trip facilities can only be seen as a positive gain for the environment and for human health. Facilitating alternative methods of commuting encourages a greater uptake of these positive habits, and increases the likelihood of maintaining them long-term. Commercial and residential buildings that champion sustainability, health, and wellness are increasingly more attractive to prospective employees, tenants, and buyers.
