The restoration of the iconic 50 Martin Place in Sydney has earned Brookfield Multiplex to be named as the prestigious National Commercial Master Builder of the Year at Master Builders Australia’s National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards 2015 on Saturday 14 November.
“Congratulations and commendations must go to Brookfield Multiplex for their outstanding work on this iconic Sydney landmark,” Wilhelm Harnisch CEO of Master Builders Australia said.
The world class restoration also earned Brookfield Multiplex the National Commercial Historical Restoration/Renovation Award at the ceremony held at Jupiters on the Gold Coast.
“Brookfield have absolutely achieved the excellence that marks the company as a Master Builder in their restoration and renovation of 50 Martin Place in Sydney’s CBD,” he said.
“The work on the landmark historical building was carried out above the operational Commonwealth Bank business at ground level,” Wilhelm Harnisch said.
“Brookfield’s excellence on this project has been underpinned by their skill, expertise and experience which they used to overcome the significant challenges of the project to deliver such a positive outcome for their clients and the community,” he said.
“Major structural demolition and reconfiguration works as well as the addition of a new structural steel and glass dome were required. Noise limitations, extensive lead paint removal and combining new technology and materials with the building’s heritage fabric were also all managed by Brookfield on this project,” Wilhelm Harnisch said.
There is no doubt that Brookfield Multiplex are deserving winners of this National Excellence Award in recognition of their work on the iconic 50 Martin Place Sydney,” Wilhelm Harnisch said.
