Project Description

The facility for the Australian Embassy in Bangkok replaced the existing embassy. The complex includes the Chancery, a Head of Mission (HOM) residence, and two perimeter guard stations with vehicle access situated in landscaped surrounds within a secure compound. The workmanship needed to reflect the prestige of an official diplomatic international office. The project is a bespoke building designed to provide a specific range of services whilst also maintaining high global standards.

The embassy comprises public spaces, conference rooms and outdoor areas, as well as the official representational areas of the HOM residence to accommodate events such as official receptions, exhibitions and trade displays, meetings, lectures and business missions. The project also includes all necessary engineering services infrastructure to provide full support facilities such as emergency power, sewerage treatment, potable and fire-fighting water storage, potable water treatment and basement car parking.

WT were appointed the Cost Manager for the project, and in close collaboration with their subconsultants ACH, provided additional local resources to assist the WT representative with the local language, contacts and experience which were essential to successfully deliver the project.
