Comdain Infrastructure recently opened its brand new, purpose-built corporate head office and operational centre in Epping, Victoria with Victorian Water Minister, Lisa Neville in attendance.
The new $9 million facility showcases Comdain’s commitment to provide clients and partners with service delivery excellence, industry-leading IT and technology systems, and the latest innovations in energy and costs savings.
As well as providing an enhanced working environment for staff, the new office consolidates corporate, the engineering team, the asset management services team, and the systems group to the one convenient location.
The facility has currently 1,500 square metres of office space, and there’s a further 800 square metres available to cater to future growth.
The new 2,000 square metre warehouse includes mechanical, tool storage, and fittings areas.
Design technology incorporated into the building includes uninterrupted power supply (UPS), with battery backup for continuous power if supply has been cut.
Meeting rooms, named after the seven largest rivers in Australia, feature Evoko ‘touch and schedule’ fingertip room-booking intelligence.
In addition, over 200 data points for phone, computer, print and communications have been installed.
Energy and cost savings that feature as part of the building include scheduled and motion sensing LED illumination controls to prevent lights being left on, double-glazed windows and insulated walls, and energy efficient air-conditioning systems.
Use of recycled material also features heavily in the building’s design.
Comdain Chief Executive Officer Peter Coen said, “The building is an investment in optimising functionality and efficiency for all our staff, subcontractors, suppliers and ultimately our clients.
“Combining the corporate team with the asset management, engineering, land development and systems group teams is a major benefit for business functionality.”
