Project Description

Field Construct, as the builder and owner, recently renovated 1970’s Parramatta Park warehouse into a modernised office building. It is in collaboration with JMC Architects as the designer.

Field Construct is now located in a 490m2 office building, consisting of a reception area, meeting room, kitchenette, staff offices, ambulant toilets, and a warehouse. The minimalist finishings provide a soothing atmosphere for the modern office.

Brief Outline of the Office Features

  • Modern 490m2 facility incorporating meeting room, staff offices, a kitchenette facility and 2x ambulant toilets.
  • Warehouse tilt panel construction.
  • Eight (8) car park space.
  • 2 x Electric car charging bays.
  • 39.425kW Solar System to the Office Building Roof with an estimated annual production of 64,852kWh.
  • 33.2kW Solar System to the Warehouse Roof with an estimated annual production of 57,580kWh.
  • External cladding system creating unique construction challenges.
  • Raised floor level for flood proofing.
  • Full 2022 NCC compliance.

Challenges & Innovations

  • The key feature of the office is electrifying all the aspects of the building including provision of two (2) electric car charger to charge to office electric vehicles.
  • Provided strip LED lighting to computer desks to improve luminance capacity with less electric consumption.
  • Special project specific concrete mix designs used in combination with high performance curing agents, and densifiers to achieve design requirements.
  • Used curtains to the Meeting Room in lieu of glazed partition to allow expansion of room size when needed to make for adaptable use of space.
  • Working to agreed dimensions with the structural steel subcontractor allowed detailing and fabrication to proceed without site measure for some items, accelerating the construction programme.
  • Re-augmentation of existing wall masonry openings to suit new windows and doors.
  • Strict quality control was implemented on the project to ensure compliance with the DDA requirements. Stair width, proper handrails and amenity circulation allowances, to name a few, are the key things Field Construct looked after in guaranteeing that the project abides the standards.


The dedication to excellence of Field Construct has resulted in a modern, aesthetically pleasing and highly functional office space. It achieved all project objectives and was delivered on schedule.

Completed Construction

Before Construction

Field Construct and JMC Architects relocated in the 2023 new year into expanded premises! What doesn't get torn down for this oldie will get refurbished into RFC and JMC Architect's new Office and Warehousing at Parramatta Park. The garaging will make way for a tilt up box and the front building will have cyclone roof frame upgrades. Detailing new internal fit out to display client products we regularly deliver. A stand out feature is Solar generation and EV charging stations planning for a large take up in coming months.
