Other works included the stabilisation and shotcrete of an existing 450m2 car park rock wall embankment, construction of a new suspended access link and 2 level stair structure to the Chambers Building, fitout of a new café in the basement level of the Chambers Building and the construction of a new lift and lift shaft for access to the Chambers Building from basement level.
Other minor works included miscellaneous landscaping and footpaths surrounding the chambers building.
