Two carriages of the Sydney Monorail, which took its final trip around Sydney on June 30 after 25 years in operation, will be used as meeting rooms in Google's new offices in Pyrmont.

Each carriage was lifted by a crane and entered the Fairfax Media Sydney building through one of the balconies.

 

The Sydney Morning Herald even live-streamed the event.

Two carriages are being donated to the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo, and director of Metropolitan Demolitions Chris Giannikouris says the steel beams that formed the rail track are still in good condition and could be used in construction.

"The beams may be re-used on civil projects, on mining projects, or building projects itself," he told Fairfax earlier this week.

The monorail was bought by the NSW government last year, and had its last run at the end of June. The demolition project will start in October, with most of the work to be completed by the end of the month.

As an employer, Google has developed initiatives to keep staff excited and engaged at work. Google's Zurich office provides employees a slippery-dip, while and Google's Dublin office has a pub-like meeting room.
