Dating back to the early 19th century, this building was originally constructed as a base for the Submarine Mining Corps to guard Sydney Harbour and prevent enemy ships from entering. Today the building is the ideal location for marine research into urbanisation, biodiversity, climate change, ocean resources and marine management.
Under the custodianship of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, a major upgrade of the site took place to create this world class marine research facility and Active Metal were called upon to execute the balustrading works. Stainless steel bollards were installed to continue on with the fresh new look this heritage building has been given and stainless steel balustrades with cable infills were fitted to the interior stairwell, complementing the sleek, modern lines created by Eeles Trelease Architects.
