183-185 Clarence Street

Frenger are proud to be currently supplying both their 'exposed' Compact Active chilled beams and their X-wing Radiant Passive Chilled Beams to 183 - 185 Clarence Street (Substation 164), Sydney.

This Built Development Group project involves the redevelopment and restoration of two adjoining heritage listed buildings, including a former electricity sub-station and a disused office/warehouse building. The former substation and disused building in Sydney's CBD will be brought dramatically into the 21st century with a six-storey 'floating' glass-and-steel pod cantilevered on top

FJMT Architects were selected following a design competition in which their scheme employs an innovative solution to support and integrate the new building addition with minimal impact on the pre-existing heritage buildings.

The scheme not only refurbishing the existing heritage site, but also incorporates a sympathetic new tower addition allowing for circa 7,650m2 of commercial office space and approximately 250m2 of retail premises within the new development.

Frenger were selected to supply their 'exposed' Compact™ Active chilled beams and X-wing® Radiant Passive chilled beams to provide energy-efficient solution which complimented both the new building addition as well as the pre-existing heritage buildings.
