AMC are currently working closely with CSIRO to design a new 1,500m² Field Support Facility and a new co-located undercover secure vehicle carpark at their Black Mountain Campus.
After an extensive briefing process on the storage and processing functions associated with a broad range of critical field-based research projects, AMC set out to design an efficient and functional facility that will accommodate multiple user groups and workflows. Despite numerous site constraints, including a large electrical easement to the north, above ground powerlines and several remnant eucalypt trees, the design team were able to conceive of a solution that is not only functional, but also aesthetically pleasing. The building expresses itself as an unpretentious linear form, that creates a simple but strong presentation to Barry Drive sitting low amongst the mature native landscape. Construction will commence later in 2020. Stay tuned for updates.
