Dandenong South to get an Ego Boost in early 2017
Building a new global headquarters is the ultimate opportunity to shape a workplace that reflects the values of a company and creates a space that staff will love coming to work to – it’s an opportunity that Ego Pharmaceuticals Managing Director Alan Oppenheim is relishing.
Mr Oppenheim says every element of stage one of Ego’s new $35 million Dandenong South development has been carefully considered as the project leads the way in a 30 year expansion plan for the family owned business.
“Ego is an innovative company with a strong emphasis on research and development so we saw this as an opportunity for our headquarters to reflect this through state-of-the-art design” said Mr Oppenheim.
Melbourne architects Crossier Scott answered the brief designing the building to include significant environmental and ecological sustainable design elements including passive orientation, solar electricity generation, double glazing and rain water harvesting.
Led by Victorian builder Hacer Group, Ego is also engaging local businesses including Fox Fire Protection, based in Hallam and Star Ceilings, based in Keysborough to complete the project to the highest quality.
The construction is due for completion in early 2017.
About Ego’s New Home – LOGIS Estate
Ego’s new home, Dandenong LOGIS, is Victoria’s first integrated eco-industrial business park. Designed by award-winning architects PLUS. The award-winning estate has revitalised 154 hectares of disused government-owned land.
The estate boasts a number of environmentally friendly features including the regeneration of Dandenong Creek, recycled water facilities, water and energy saving features, as well as the retention of significant trees in native reserves and an abundant amount of open space which will offer its new residents an enhanced level of environmental surroundings.
Located next to EastLink, a significant proportion of LOGIS is for community use such as parklands and a Soccer 5s facility that opened in July 2015.
Located in Dandenong South, Dandenong LOGIS say they “aim to be a unique master planned development that offers your business the very best in innovation, sustainability and urban design, combined with superior amenities.”
LOGIS has broken records for the value of industrial land in Melbourne’s South-East and is now sold out.
We’re very proud to share with you the future of Ego with the development of our new global headquarters at 6 Oppenheim Way. Named after the founders of Ego Rae and Gerald Oppenheim.
