Australian Taxation Office (ATO)

Project Description

The Australian Taxation Office has recently signed a 10-year lease agreement for 9 levels of 255 George Street in Sydney CBD. The building is currently undergoing a substantial refurbishment project estimated at 70 million dollars.

As part of this refurbishment, Shape Constructions engaged Kerfoot to handle the supply and installation of electrical services across all 9 levels. This implies that Kerfoot will be responsible for ensuring the electrical infrastructure meets the requirements of the Australian Taxation Office and is compliant with relevant regulations and standards.

Completing the electrical services for such a significant project is a substantial undertaking. It involves tasks such as power distribution, lighting installation, data cabling, and other electrical systems necessary for the functioning of the office spaces and ensuring the electrical requirements of the Australian Taxation Office are met efficiently and to a high standard.


Specific items within the scope of this project were:

  • Supply and Installation of Structured Cabling (Comms Room)
  • Supply and Installation of Architectural and Feature Lighting
  • Supply and Installation of all general purpose power outlets
  • Supply and Installation of CREDB and Associated Submains
  • Supply and Installation of under carpet Cable Management and associated floor boxes.
  • Supply and install 225,000 M data cable
  • Supply and install 25,000 M power cable


Project Accolades

The Kerfoot team wasted no time in getting started on the awarded project. They quickly made multiple floors safe and set up temporary power and lighting, allowing other trades to begin work on the compressed schedule.

To efficiently handle the project, the site team was divided into three teams, each assigned to work on a different floor. Their initial tasks included installing cable trays for power and data cabling, while walls were being built and sheeted during the first three weeks.

The mechanical project was managed by Grosvenor Engineering Group, who also subcontracted Benmax to handle the AC works for the Comms room. This arrangement ensured a comprehensive approach to the project’s mechanical needs.

Kerfoot played a crucial role in the project’s success by delivering multiple switchboards within a short timeframe. They not only completed the installation and commissioning of the switchboards but also exceeded the client’s expectations.
