Rio Tinto Echo 2

Byte Construc are proud to have completed the additional office space of the Rio Tinto remote operations centre at the Perth Domestic Airport. The works involved the construction of a 3-storey office space, with an underground car park, to a base build level.

The building itself includes open office space with a floor plate of 1,200 square metres per floor, with an upper plant deck and an external mechanical chiller plant compound with a cooling storage tower of 500,000L capacity. The external of the building is clad with double glazed window units, high quality Alpolic sheet cladding and CFC panels with an automotive grade painted finish.

The office building is built to an “Australian Excellence” 5-star Green Star level, with sustainable products used throughout. Other environmental initiatives include daylight harvesting, monitored lighting levels, peak energy use reduction and refrigerant use reductions in the mechanical plant. A greywater plant treats water collected from the sinks and basins for re-use in the landscaping surrounding the building. The waste on site was recycled by the waste contractor to a level of 80% recycling.
