Commercial Manager, Bid & Strategy
We deliver small to large-scale complex projects that span across workplace modifications, base building upgrades, technically demanding high security projects and cold shell fit out. We’re particularly experienced in live and sensitive environments and this comes from our work for the Federal Government, ACT Government as well as our private & corporate clients.
We work with clients across retail, hotels and hospitality specialising in fitout and refurbishment, new build and modular builds – all with the same positive, motivated and experienced approach.
This division of SHAPE enables a variety of agile, flexible, and turnkey solutions to clients looking for speed to market, more nimble construction or locally delivered solutions. SHAPE+ offers design and construction services that combine the strength and experience of SHAPE, but with dedicated specialist teams. Through the Aftercare offering, SHAPE+ can continue to service clients over the lifespan of their lease with future upgrades, additions, or maintenance.
