Chau Chak Wing Museum

Described by its architects as a “floating white concrete box”, the futuristic Chau Chak Wing Museum continues the current transformation of The University of Sydney’s campus. This museum attracted close to $22 million in philanthropic donations to go towards its construction, and provides 1800 square metres of exhibition space to house an estimated 700,000 artistic, scientific and archaeological artefacts from around the world. Specialist study rooms, a café terrace and a sheltered external courtyard for public events are also integrated into the building’s design. The electrical services contractor on this remarkable project is again a long-term Drawable customer, so we were engaged to supply all their documentation from layouts of the photovoltaic system, site power, comms and lighting to site reticulation schematics.
