Elders House Development, Adelaide

Elder House is a five level heritage listed building located at 27 Currie Street in the heart of Adelaide’s CBD and has operated as the Elders Limited head office since 1839.

Multiplex was contracted to refurbish the building’s existing facade, collaborating with the appropriate authorities and following strict heritage guidelines to restore the building to its original condition and refurbish the interiors to create a modern office space.

The existing rear half of the building was completely demolished and replaced with 6,500 square metres of new office space over seven levels. Multiplex simultaneously completed a fully integrated, high quality fit-out enabling quick handover of the building to the tenants who were required to temporarily relocate whilst the upgrades occurred.

Multiplex’s successful refurbishment of Elder House highlights its capabilities in high-quality heritage restoration and its ability to deliver outstanding results within tight timeframes.

The restoration project received industry accolades including Australian Institute of Building’s 2002 State and National Awards for Professional Excellence in Building, winning both awards in the category of refurbishment and fit-out projects ($5 to $30 million).

A key achievement in the overall building program was Multiplex’s budget and completion guarantee for the client, ensuring peace of mind.

Multiplex was able to exceed the client’s expectations by completing the project on time, even with the addition of two new office floors. This achievement was further highlighted through the simultaneous completion of the fully integrated office fit-out, enabling Multiplex to minimise the timeframe that the occupant was out of the space.
