World Trade Centre

The WTC Wharf is a progressive redevelopment and refurbishment of the former World Trade Centre complex. It is one of Melbourne's largest integrated waterfront office complexes, strategically located on the banks of the Yarra River.

The complex occupies an expansive waterfront site. Central to Northbank, and positioned directly opposite Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre, the World Trade Centre is the gateway to Melbourne's Central Business District.

Recently relaunched as the new WTC wharf, the complex occupies over 150 metres of waterfront, over 70,000m² of office space, over 300 car spaces, and is home to Thales Australia and Thales Land groups, Victoria Police Headquarters, Australian Taxation Office, Australian Energy Market Operator and other major corporations.

The building has a basement level, Ground floor court rooms and seven levels of general office space and meeting rooms for the Department of Justice.

The project scope is to upgrade the current Invensys BMS to an open system and to interface to the new chillers equipped with variable speed chilled water pumps that are being installed via high level interface.

The project intent is to retain all of the field I/A series I/O controllers and VAV controllers and move to a non-propriety open NiagaraAX network controller system.
