Hindmarsh are proud to be delivering the Bean Building and Central Energy Plant for the Australian War Memorial (AWM).
The works package is split into three (3) Separable Portions, SP2-SP4 across the project lifespan.
SP2 & SP3 will commence with the connection of service tunnels and pipework on the northern elevation of existing Bean Building will begin as part of the SP2 works program, including upgrades to the roof, façade, fitout, services, installation of the 50kL rainwater tank, and external works.
Following the completion of SP3 Memorial staff will transfer people, materials and the National Collection from the existing Bean Building into the new Bean Building Extension.
Once the move is completed, SP4 can begin. SP4 involves the refurbishment works to the existing Bean Building. Any areas subject to being a connection point between existing and new Bean Building which could not be undertaken during SP3, i.e., mechanical louvres, will be undertaken during this program timeframe.

Upon completion this will be one of the largest geothermal installations of its type in the world. Hindmarsh will deliver the initial 70km's of pipe which will help decrease the Memorial’s energy usage. The system is designed to be expanded as required, with a potential 128kms in the pipeline. By harnessing natural resources onsite, this new generation of geothermal system will save the Memorial approximately $1.3m each year on heating and cooling.
