Consolidating with Laing O’Rourke at CSIRO’s Black Mountain Campus

13 Nov 2019

Work is well underway at the CSIRO’s Black Mountain Campus where our team is currently laying concrete for the loading bay, erecting the precast walls and constructing insitu stairs.

Designed by Aspect Studio, Laing O’Rourke was awarded construction of a purpose-built laboratory and research building, a new car park, and converting an existing laboratory into office accommodation – all part of the CSIRO’s 20-year master plan to consolidate their Canberra sites into one high quality, modern facility.

Glascott are providing the hard landscaping surrounding the new building including courtyard, entry and link spaces.

ACT Manager, Mr Matthew Elliott said, ”We have formed a good relationship with the project team from Laing O’Rourke and with an increasingly growing scope of works we are on the way to delivering a unique new building at the CSIRO campus.“

Glascott previously worked with Laing O’Rourke on the Moorebank Relocation Unit in NSW, the largest defence infrastructure project since World War II. This project saw Laing O’Rourke take out the prestigious 2016 Australian Construction Achievement Award.

Works at Black Mountain are expected to be complete by early November 2016.
