Rork Projects recently completed a significant expansion of our fit out completed by our Melbourne team in 2022. The main objective was to expand the existing tenancy to cover the balance of the level while ensuring a high standard of quality, safety, and functionality.
The project began with the demolition and removal of joinery, partitions, ceilings, floor finishes, walls, and doors. Subsequently, new walls, doors, ceilings, joinery, and flooring were installed, along with the painting of surfaces. Graphics and signage were integrated to enhance the overall aesthetics.
To support the expanded tenancy’s infrastructure, alterations and additions were made to the mechanical, electrical, fire, and hydraulic services. Additionally, new AV installations were carried out to provide a modern communication and presentation environment.
The fit out plan carefully considered various functional areas, including an open workstation space, meeting rooms, wellness facilities, and a lactation room to promote employee well-being. The design also facilitated a seamless connection between the existing tenancy and the new expanded area.
To meet the security requirements, Speed Gates were installed in the lift lobby area, adding an extra layer of security for the occupants of the space.
Throughout the project, Rork Projects meticulously managed after-hours works in sensitive areas, such as the IT and live works zone, to minimize disruption to regular operations. Additionally, all employees from subcontractors completed inductions via the Rapid Global Portal, ensuring adherence to safety protocols.
The project encountered challenges, such as unanticipated changes from the tender to the construction stage, resulting in delays in noticing and approving variations. However, Rork Projects efficiently managed the situation and obtained all necessary approvals.
Despite these challenges, Rork Projects completed the project on time, within the budget, and achieved an exceptional finish. The successful delivery of the project reinforced the strong and positive relationship with this reoccurring client. The newly transformed workspace now provides the organization with a modern, efficient, and secure environment that caters to the needs of their employees and business operations.
Our team is elated to have fostered a great relationship with this client throughout the journey. We’re grateful for the opportunity to deliver a workspace that aligns with their vision and caters to the needs of their employees and operations, with the client being so impressed they awarded us with the fit out of another level as a single select.
