Margaret Whitlam Pavilion
The Margaret Whitlam Pavilion is an important facility for the National Arboretum Canberra, related to the Visitor Centre and the spectrum of activities planned for the Arboretum. The structure is an innovative and economical arrangement of plywood box beams, clad externally in zinc, each separated by a strip of sun-shaded glass to wash the interior with soft light.
Steensen Varming was engaged to provide Mechanical, Electrical, Lighting and ESD services. A low energy heating and cooling system was designed for this project which would not impact on the aesthetics of the building design.
