Level 2 Crossbar, Federation Square, Melbourne
One of Melbourne’s most important public places, Federation Square, located in the heart of the city, sees over 10 million visitors every year. It is a public space for Melbourne’s residents and tourists, and plays host to major political, sporting and cultural events throughout the year. Crossbar is located within the Federation Square complex, and McCormack was engaged to assist with the fitout construction of its offices on Level 2.
A major collaborative project, McCormack, with Cox Architecture, helped to deliver a beautiful, open plan office that seamlessly blends with the existing Federation Square style and character. Light and neutral tones assimilate with the Aspect furniture meeting pods, new timber sub-floor and perforated ceiling. McCormack dealt swiftly with project managing and problem solving the many unexpected challenges that arose during the fitout such as finding workarounds to the limited loading bay access, ensuring noisy works were restricted during events and keeping client costs down when errors were found in the existing floor height measurements by installing a new timber floor substrate.
