We help customers upgrade their existing workplace so that it meets all the modern-day standards of productivity.
Clients are provided with all the latest refurbishment options that are both cost effective as well as satisfy the practicality and aesthetic need of their office. We also offer a full location fitout, whereby you are provided with all the required equipment to operate successfully.
Budget and costing
When it comes to project management one of the most important aspects of making a fitout work is to ensure that it stays within budget. So, to achieve this often tricky feat, we continue to conduct a detailed analysis of the costs and forecast potential expenses. This allows us to then determine how it will affect the project’s cost until its completion.
To help you make the right decision we provide the following:
- We will provide both floor plans as well as a detailed cost analysis on each shortlisted property
- We also hold a tender process with three contractors for each category
- We manage both fixed priced projects and open book ones
- Our costing provides a detailed price list of each component required for the fitout
- The budget is all inclusive with no fine print at the bottom
We do the following during the development phase:
- All clients receive weekly reports with deliverables for each week
- You receive photographs of the site
- Meetings onsite with the main contractors
- A site folder with the establishment and OH&S reports
- The invoicing is based the progress on site and contains a detailed breakdown
- You also get all the budget control sheets
Managing various types of Fitouts
When it comes office fitouts perhaps the most important thing is to ensure that the results are delivered on time and within the specified budget. Our project managers will oversee every aspect of the project in addition to guiding the adherence fo the whole project. Regardless of location, office strip, refurbishment unit or any other factor we will manage the fitout.
Medical fitout Management
The healthcare industry is perhaps one of the most important and so there a few things that need to be considered with a fitout. The health and technical requirements are of prime importance. Thus, during the management phase, we will consider your specific needs for every specialist practitioner. Plus, thanks to our secure processes in place we ensure that the process is safe.
Retail and shopfitting Project Management
Our retail project management ensures that your store’s design is followed through consistently along with your brand’s goals. We guarantee that your project is managed efficiently right up to the very end. The processes we manage include acquiring approvals, and ensuring that each aspect of the design is accurately implement.
Our goal is to make sure that every aspect of the designed follows through with the rules and regulations set forth by the local council. Whether it is a medical, retail or commercial space, we will move ahead with all the required certificates, permits and assessments. All of which will effectively pave the way to a smooth fitout which is imperative to successful project management.
Lease negotiations and market analysis
We work with your best interest in mind. We will provide you with detailed market analysis in addition to research backed insights for each aspect of the project. All of which will help when negotiating your lease. We may also be able to help you get lease incentives during negotiations.
Grant finance and applications
If you want to start a fitout process of your own but don’t have the funds, we can still help you. The Australian Government has grants that can be used by businesses in the health services industry, but the process is complicated. Though with our assistance we can develop a solid proposal which will help with a successful application.
Finally, when the fitout is in the construction phase of the project, we make sure that every aspect of it complies with the briefs previously established. Our professionals onsite ensure that the construction is as it should be for your retail fitout or medical office. That will guarantee huge savings on construction but also business management time savings.

Office Refurbishment Services
We help you save money on relocation by refurbishing the existing office.
The fact is that getting your office refurbished or re-designed may not offer all the benefits of moving to a new office. But it does away with the inconvenience and cost associated with it. Though if its more space that you need our redesign will help make more of it for better collaboration zones, breakout areas etc. Plus, we will ensure that your staff feels positive which in turn boosts productivity by ensuring that the design is aesthetic as well as practical.
The entire process of re-designing or refurbishing an office is a lot like how our service works for a new office space, but we take the following into special consideration:
A lot of special planning
It can without a doubt be a challenge to run your business with all the hustle and bustle of a construction project taking place. However, with our experience on many similar projects, we know just how to tackle this problem. We plan ahead and put contingencies in place for more contingencies to ensure that things are planned out for every possibility.
No need to halt business
We guarantee that you can continue doing business because without this guarantee refurbishing your present space does not make much sense. All work is usually scheduled for after business hours and over the weekend. So, we start working when your staff stops.
Always connected and online
It will come as no surprise to most businesses that some refurbishment projects require upgrades, repairs and additions to the IT system. As a matter of fact, it’s a great time to carry out this type of work. We will maintain continuity of service throughout the refurbishment while making room for planned downtime for the computer network.
Save on your energy bill
Office refurbishment is a great time to work on ways to mitigate electrical leaks and improve efficiency. Things like LEDs, a more power efficient air conditioning units and other power saving devices can be installed during the refurbishment. So, with renovation, you can take the opportunity to save a few dollars off the energy bill.
Give your furniture a new life
Yes! A great time to go green and save money too. Even though interior designers like to start with a blank sheet, i.e. start with new furniture. Though professional interior designers can work with just about any type of furniture to make it look better and updated. Whether it is your kitchen, meeting table or workstations, they can all be refreshed, and you save money in the process too.
Committing to safety
We believe in a safe working environment for everyone. Just as we like to protect our team, we have safety guidelines for your staff. We run through a complex series of processes that require expertise and planning to ensure that your work staff are always protected when our professionals are working. Periodic safety briefings for both teams ensure that everyone understands what they should and shouldn’t be doing hence keeping everyone safe.
Unleashing the potential of your vision
You probably have a fairly good idea of what the office should look like, but the question is how do you bring it to life? We will work closely with you throughout the design phase to understand what you want. Our goal is to incorporate every aspect of your vision while contemplating the practical aspects of each part.
We explore all possibilities and cover every aspect of your business’s needs to ensure that the design perfectly suits what everyone does. The final design is aesthetic, functional and obviously practical.
The initial visit
We love to meet you at your office which makes it easier to visualise how everything should look while understanding your needs. We listen to every aspect of your vision while listing all your needs, all the while asking critical questions and providing a few of our ideas. The goal is to maximise your budget in every possible way.
The best way to ensure that the designs we come up meet the goal set out is to understand your requirements. These can range from the number of required office rooms to lighting, cabling, electrical points and data centres.
Once we have an in-depth understanding of your overall requirements, we will start to plan things out. The planning phase mainly has us figuring out what is and isn’t possible. We also take heritage overlays and other aspects of outfitting into consideration. If required we also help with acquiring permits and liaising with stakeholders.
Creating the space
Our interior designers and architects work to create the space we have envisioned. Everything from colour palettes to floor plans and final finishes is chosen at this stage. We generate 3D renders which allow you to see exactly how the space will look when finished.
