Design and Construct
With the office fitout carried out as a design and construct with 6-star Green Star target, our project team was heavily involved in design and driving project objectives.
The scope of works included:
- High-end finishes
- Complex audiovisual integration
- French marble staircase and high-performance acoustics
- Providing minimal disruption
- Meet Green Star accreditation requirements
SHAPE worked closely with both Westpac and the consultants to ensure we met their expectations and delivered a fitout in line with their operational needs. We also engaged a Green Star consultant and commissioning manager to assist with this process. Defect management commenced four weeks before completion, with our site team closing out defects as they were picked up.
Our team coordinated with consultants and the designer for the inclusion of value engineering where possible, maintaining the design impact and minimising the impact on programme and cost. Overall, this project was completed on time (with the comms room finished in the first eight weeks), allowing Westpac to prepare for a smooth transition of operations.
