As one of the biggest infrastructure projects ever undertaken in this country, rolling out a national broadband network across Australia necessitates a large and highly mobile team of full-time employees and contractors. When NBN Co amalgamated all its corporate sites into one location at Collins Square they required functional storage facilities for their activity based workforce.
This fitout was similarly of a large scale, and with a challenging timeframe. All in all, we were tasked with designing, manufacturing and installing 2,472 custom H3 lockers covering ten floors, with each bank of lockers on every level featuring a different colour scheme.
Along with their strikingly individual colour palette, each locker incorporated a mail slot, and a Gantner RFID locking system that was integrated with the building’s access control system. The custom design featured open storage space below the banks, alongside housing for general power and data outlets and services. The custom shroud on each bank was mitred to enhance the smooth and seamless appearance of the fitout.
Another unique design feature was included in the umbrella and coat cupboards. Each cupboard’s door doubled as a magnetic whiteboard, giving the lockers a useful work function within each office space.
One of the hallmarks of Lockin is our ability to design, manufacture and install our products with fast turnarounds, no matter what size or scale the brief. The fitout at NBN was once again testament to our capabilities.
