The fitout was undertaken as a Design and Construct contract. The pre-construction phase involved a high-level of involvement from the SHAPE project team to identify value engineering options while finalising the design collaboratively with design partner Geyer. To achieve the 6-star Green Star and Silver WELS rating, SHAPE engaged a third-party Green Star and commissioning agent to assist with this process. SHAPE worked closely with both Westpac and the consultants to ensure all project expectations were met.
Defect management and rectification commenced four weeks before practical completion, allowing our site team and trade partners to actively close out defects prior to handover.
Overall this project was completed in a very tight programme, with the comms room completed within the first 8 weeks – allowing Westpac to enjoy a seamless transition into their new offices.

SHAPE undertook a very complex, high quality and challenging project in Westpac Perth office fitout. With only 20 weeks to complete the contract works.
It is due to the hard works, determination and unique SHAPE approach from each of the individuals involved that allowed SHAPE to achieve the deadline.
