CHADSTONE HOTEL

The AU$130 million Chadstone hotel in Melbourne, Australia, is a key element in the precinct’s masterplan, sitting alongside a 10-storey office tower and the Chadstone Shopping Centre. Designed by Melbourne-based architects, Bates Smart, the 250-room MGallery by Sofitel hotel will be the first hotel to target a 5 Star Green Star rating using the new generation Green Star – Design/As Built v1.1 rating tool.

The five-star hotel has a day spa, gymnasium and rooftop infinity swimming pool, restaurants and bars and a ballroom capable of hosting up to 400 people.

A compressed construction timeline has been achieved through a collaborative client, contractor and consultant approach with the introduction of integrated structural prefabrication and an unitised curtain wall façade system. The façade is a thermally enhanced, unitised curtain wall with integrated anodised aluminium fins.

Inhabit provided full façade consultancy services, full ESD consultancy services as well as engineering and certification services on the project.
