ECI PROCUREMENT FOR THE FULL REFURBISHMENT OF THE BUILDING. THIS APPROACH ALLOWED DEMOLITION WORKS TO COMMENCE IMMEDIATELY UPON AWARD, WHILST THE DESIGN FOR THE INTERNAL WORKS WAS BEING DEVELOPED. ONCE THE INTERNAL FIT OUT WAS UNDERWAY, THE EXTERNAL DESIGN WAS UNDERTAKEN, ALLOWING FOR A STAGED, ACCELERATED PROGRAMME, AND THE ABILITY TO MONITOR BUDGET AND MODIFY THE DESIGN TO SUIT.
An occupied building in West Perth, this 6,000m² internal refurbishment with additional external works, revitialised the whole building – including façade, to ensure that tenants would be enticed and retained by modern facilities, a high quality and design led interior and wellness facilities.
Internally, works comprised of retuning all floors, Ground to Level 4, back to base build and upgrading them at the same time with high quality amenities, stone finishes throughout as well as fitting out a test suite to assist leasing agents with enticing new tenants to the building.
The entry statement was completely revised, modernising this prestigious building along Kings Park Road entailing the removal of part of the façade, reinstalling glazing, a new entry awning and external stone paving which flowed through into the new feature lobby.
The end of trip in the basement was extended and refurbished to become fully accessible, increase capacity and include secure bike racks, maintenance and electric charging. The tennis court was removed externally, and we installed a basketball court, paving, pergola, container for an F&B operator and wellness facilities as well as landscaping the surrounding areas.
An ECI project, numerous workshops were completed with key stakeholders and trades to ensure that works were sequenced and staged to minimise disruption to tenants and visitors as well as ensure high levels of OHS – particularly during the high risk works associated with the façade and entry. The works raised the Grade from D to B.
