To design, obtain Town Planning Approval and document through to construction, a new Barwon Water Depot office overlooking a unique local landmark – the historic Breakwater sewer aqueduct designed by engineer E.G. Stone and erected from 1913-1915 (the only one of its kind in Australia in terms of its length and the use of the Considere construction technique).


The building combines various departments under the one roof, including a lunch room looking out to the heritage-listed aqueduct.

The depot includes an open plan office along with smaller meeting rooms, specialty services and a drive-through storage/workshop facility. A bike storage facility and large parking area for fleet trucks were both incorporated into the design for daily use at the depot office.
