peckvonhartel’s new commercial building at 1 Malop Street in Geelong for Worksafe was awarded a ‘Victorian Engineering Excellence Award’. The awards recognise and promote new, innovative and life changing ideas that are brought to life in ways that bring fundamental change to our society.

Designed by peckvonhartel, the 14-storey office building is home to WorkSafe Victoria’s new headquarters and is the tallest building in Geelong. The design is a leading example of how green solutions can incorporate an historic landmark building. Designed and built to target a 5.5 Star NABERS Energy rating, and a 6 Star Green Star Design rating, the building is the first in Australia to be awarded WELL Precertification.

The project is now through to be a finalist at the national awards, the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards (AEEA) hosted by Engineers Australia to be held 18 September 2018 at a Gala Dinner in Sydney during the Australian Engineering Conference.

We are extremely proud to receive this award for this landmark project.
