As Victoria’s first hotel above a shopping centre, Sage Hotel in Ringwood is paving the way for future shopping centres.  No longer just facilities of necessity, shopping centres are becoming a one stop destination encompassing entertainment, hospitality, leisure and retail.

The brand new 4.5 Star 120-room hotel and conference facility spans five floors above Eastland Shopping Centre and includes a restaurant, bar, conference and co-working facilities comprising of a boardroom, function room and a co-working space with a capacity of 80 people.

Working closely with the project team to ensure the projects tight program was achieved for an opening in October 2017, ADP delivered early resolution of services design which was completed using REVIT MEP to a high level of detail, thus enabling early procurement of structural steel.

To ensure the façade was the hero of the project, we worked in close collaboration with both the Buchan Group and ACME to ensure the services had a highly integrated design approach to the façade.

Finally, ADP in conjunction with local suppliers assisted in the development of custom plant and equipment to ensure the maximum height of the plant was within the 1200mm roof plant height restriction.

One of Melbourne’s favourite live-music venues, Hotel Esplanade, known affectionately as “The Espy” is undergoing an extensive revamp.

The Sand Hill Road Group will renovate and reimagine every inch of the building, opening huge sections of the hotel that haven’t been seen by the public for nearly a century. There will be; a Terrace Garden with retractable glass panelled ceiling, a Public Bar and Main Bar, two kitchens, world class cocktail bars, function spaces, even a podcast recording studio! And, of course, The Espy will also have the Gershwin Room, perhaps the most famous live entertainment room in Melbourne.

A key challenge was designing and integrating the services within a tight heritage building envelope.  Mixing high volumes of people within a music, food & beverage venue, we had to retrofit fire sprinkler systems throughout the building to integrate large kitchen exhaust systems, without compromising the client’s vision for the venue’s redesign. We also provided solutions to minimise the buildings energy consumption and associated CO2 emissions.

The Docklands is a mixed-use development comprising of a Marriott hotel offering 200 premium hotel rooms and 110 contemporary residences across 16 levels.

A complex architectural design, the towers cantilever over the existing District Docklands retail precinct with an integrated, automated car parking system for the apartments. Our team worked in close collaboration with project stakeholders to minimise the services impact, achieving the required project outcomes through clever planning and design .
