After a year of providing extensive Technical expertise and design services, Rondo Malaysia was successful in securing the tender for the Australian Embassy project in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Leighton Holdings has been contracted to the $230 million Project, building the Australian Embassy as a joint venture with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Denton Corker Marshall Architecture and Urban Design.
Rondo immediately began supplying Products the project, including Steel Stud and Track and KEY-LOCK® Concealed Suspended Ceiling System, which have been used in the ‘super structure’ stage of the 40,500 square metre project. Rondo was chosen as a supplier to the project due to our support throughout the tender stage and our ability to provide Leighton Holdings with a total solution package, enlisting help and resources from USG Boral, James Hardie and Rockwool.
At the peak of the project, it is estimated that approx. 800 local workers will be on-site, providing a fundamental and integral boost to the community and employment. The design of the project emphasises the need for environmental awareness, security and safety.
With an immediate start to the Project, it is estimated the Australian Embassy will be up and running in Jakarta by mid-2015 and will truly be an iconic landmark and relationship for Indonesia and the greater Australasia.
