Ministerial and Parliamentary Services – North Ipswich

Designer: IA Design    Area: 225

Interior Engineering is delighted to have been involved in the successful delivery of a Federal Minister’s new office in the heritage listed Tarpaulin Building in North Ipswich.

The Tarpaulin Building was originally constructed as a railway store in 1878 and remains one of the oldest railways related buildings in the State.

A condition of development approval was that the complete fit out design was not to impact in any way upon the building’s heritage structure and was to be sympathetic to the heritage character of the building.

Close collaboration between the Heritage Architect and the project design team has ensured the new fit out met the stringent heritage related requirements of the DA while delivering an office space that complied with the equally stringent Brief for a Federal Minister’s office.

The final installation is a celebration of a contemporary fit out that showcases the heritage character of a grand old Queensland building.
