Medland Engineering were proud to be engaged to deliver Microsoft’s new Accelerator innovation hub in the heart of Sydney CBD. We were tasked with designing Engineering services that could accommodate multiple ways of working with a high degree of flexibility and high population densities.

Wynyard Greed is a heritage building which poses significant constraints for building services, including fresh air, cooling, accessibility, power and services pathways. Medland Engineering collaborated closely with the interior designer, heritage consultant, client and landlord to deliver bespoke design solutions that helped facilitate how the client/end users work within the space. At the same time the heritage constraints were embraced in every phase of the design.

Key innovations in our design included:

  • Designed and implemented a new automated retractable power solution for flexible working with CMS.
  • New external building façade to increase localise fresh air requirements.
