AMC is pleased to be partnering with PBS Building and Major Projects Canberra in the design and delivery of a new Access Canberra Service Centre in Belconnen. The design concept reflects the ACT Government’s “digital first, customer-centric model” and seeks to create a welcoming and legible customer service environment. Timber battens and acoustic screening elements throughout add warmth and interest and assist in providing visual and acoustic privacy for customer and service centre staff interactions. Integrated technology, feature lighting, stone counter tops and considered loose furniture selections introduce a contemporary feel enhanced by a colour palette that subtly references Access Canberra’s branding. Stay tuned for more updates!
We are delighted that two recent projects designed by AMC are Finalists in the 2021 Master Builders and Asset Construction Hire Excellence Awards. The refurbishment and extension to the Villaggio Residential Aged Care Facility in Page, constructed by Monarch Building, is a finalist in the “Special Purpose Commercial Building” category. While, the PSMA/Geoscape Australia fitout, built by AMA Projects, has been nominated in the “Commercial or Retail Fitout, Refurbishment or Alteration $1 Million to $5 Million” category. More details about these projects can be found on our website. Winners will be announced on 22 October!
Check out this time lapse video capturing the exciting transformation of the ageing AFP Operation Control Centre into the new National Operations State Service Centre (NOSSC) within the Edmund Barton Building in Canberra! Designed by AMC and constructed by Projex, the newly established NOSSC features two large format video walls, a raised Watch Floor, dedicated command and supervisory work areas and associated breakout and utility areas. A muted colour palette (inspired by AFP’s branding) is contrasted against the targeted use of timber battening, joinery and acoustic wall and ceiling panels which provide interest and warmth to open plan areas. The result is a reinvigorated, functional and agile working environment that facilitates improved collaboration, connectedness and centralises engagement between the AFP and its State & Territory and Commonwealth partners.
AMC is marking NAIDOC Week by acknowledging key projects and industry partners with indigenous connections as an opportunity to recognise the history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The incorporation of Yarning Circles into workplaces is an important cultural connection with Australia’s indigenous heritage, providing an opportunity for informal collaboration, reflection and storytelling in a dedicated, relaxed space. AMC and Quay Building Group’s fitout of the Department of Education’s Yarning Room in Canberra showcases Aboriginal artwork, artefacts and upholstery fabric design and was recently a Finalist in the 2020 MBA ACT Awards. We also wish to acknowledge our construction industry partners with indigenous connections who play a vital role in the delivery of our projects.

The booth is located in the Arrivals area and operates 24 hours a day. More info can be found here.
