The project involved the adaptive reuse, refurbishment and upgrade of an existing heritage building and Telstra exchange building into The Heart Research Institute’s head office space and research laboratories. The facade of the 1931 Telstra exchange building was preserved whilst the interior had been converted into a state-of-the-art research facility. The laboratories provide research space for more than 100 scientific staff and feature Physical Containment Level 1 and 2 laboratories.
