The largest and record-breaking Australian Embassy building has been cost managed by WT.
The new Australian Embassy compound is the most expensive Commonwealth building outside of Australia. Records have been broken constructing the Embassy, including relocating four mature Banyan trees, which is the biggest transplanting effort recognised by the Indonesian Guinness Book of Records.
WT have provided full cost management for the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade during the construction of the $415 million Denton Corker Marshall designed project. PT Leighton Contractors Indonesia and PT Total Bangun Persada were also involved in the project’s construction.
The 50,000 sqm building is the largest Commonwealth Embassy with state-of-the-art security, environmentally sustainable design, and has been purpose built to withstand the effects of an earthquake (allowing for building movement of 600mm in any direction).
The site is located in central Jakarta and provides office, residential and recreational accommodation for Australian government departments including Foreign Affairs, Federal Police, Austrade, Customs, Attorney General and others.
