Briscoe Building

485-501 Wattle Street, Ultimo, NSW

The Briscoe Building at Ultimo combines an honest and modern interior fitout within a heritage enclosure. Originally constructed in 1901 the building was owned by an English company of iron and hardware merchants trading as Briscoe & Co. The Independent Education Union (IEU) acquired the heritage-listed Briscoe building in early 2012 to relocate all of their Sydney staff and to position themselves between the UTS, Sydney Uni, Notre Dame, simultaneously improving their proximity to central station, and providing a bespoke working environment (resulting in increased productivity) that was not able to be realised from the previous premises.

Briscoe Building

"The Independent Education Union is pleased to be a referee for Belmadar The tight time schedule of our project, the heritage building and specialist fit out required a combination of skills beyond the norm. A feature of Belmadar was the quality of relationships with their sub-contractors in tandem with a can do attitude   Please do not hesitate to contact me to verify these thoughts."
