With the successful completion of Export Park Building Refurbishment and Fitout, Adelaide Airport is one step closer to delivering on its vision, to turn the Airport Business District into a top tier business centre in the Asia Pacific region.

Overseen by Sarah Constructions, in collaboration with Studio Nine Architects, the project transformed old 80’s warehouse stock into new open plan office accommodation for up to 80 people. The client design requirements were to enhance the character and scale of the warehouse by transforming it into vibrant, open office space complete with ample natural light.

Given the extreme proximity to operating Aircraft, significant acoustic design considerations were implemented, to ensure a comfortable work environment for office staff. The project was successfully delivered within a tight timeframe, driven by the tenant requirement, OZ Minerals, to vacate their current office lease.

Attracting high-calibre tenants like OZ Minerals to this exemplar site, enables Adelaide Airport to demonstrates their ability to provide a globally connected, next generation hub with designated industry clusters connected via seamless air access, both national and international.
