Art Gallery of NSW Storage Facility
LILYFIELD, NSW Art Gallery of NSW Storage Facility
With existing galleries overflowing and limited capacity to safely accommodate excess works of art, the Art Gallery of New South Wales required a purpose-built facility to house, catalogue and preserve valuable art works not currently on display. The result was the construction of a multi storey, 6,500m², modern day “Fort Knox”.
The building combines the highest-level security systems with sophisticated mechanical services components and building management systems. These services represent approximately 50% of the contract value and are designed to unique tolerances to maintain constant air temperature, control internal humidity levels and monitor the atmospheric conditions of all independent storage compartments within the facility.
