Comments from the jury include:
“The Main Roads Regional Headquarters in Northam has sacrificed nothing to its regional setting, with a high quality of both workplace and recreational amenity.”
“There has been close attention to detail of the functional requirements together with the climatic and services operational strategies, resulting not only in a striking level of high quality amentiy but also ongoing savings in significantly reduced operational costs and low maintenance.”
“The architecture in the building is working hard for its occupants and users in every aspect and makes a contextually appropriate positive contribution to its place. Very accomplished architects, engineers and contractors making more of less.”
The Facility was also one of 6 shortlisted for The Wallace Greenham Award for Sustainable Architecture.
Thank you to everyone involved.
