The First Ever "Groundscraper" For Mirvac

Posted on 26 August 2020

Eureka Insulation are proud to have supplied the insulation for our loyal customers at Red 8 Roofing who recently completed the roof of 'The Foundry', built by Mirvac. As the largest building in the precinct, The Foundry spans 55,000sqm over six storeys with expansive floorplates nearing 9,000sqm, earning the title of one of Australia’s first ‘groundscrapers’ in reference to its large-scale, low-level design.

The Foundry is set to become home to over 5,500 Commonwealth Bank of Australia staff including the organisation’s innovation labs, complementing their first workplace at the precinct, Axle, that opened last year. Targeting a 6 Star Green Star rating, and a 5 Star NABERS Energy rating, with an impressive solar array on the roof offsetting the base building energy with a design output of 370kW The Foundry is state of the art.

“Completing The Foundry in the current environment is one of Mirvac’s greatest achievements and its success is a testament to the entire delivery team and our partners. The Government’s decision to keep construction sites open during COVID-19 has allowed us to deliver the building on time and within budget, safeguarding 500 jobs onsite and supporting the recovery of the NSW economy.”

Eureka Insulation proudly met finish, time and cost objectives with performance to suit. Now a bustling hub of technology and innovation hub, South Eveleigh it is no doubt a masterpiece.
