What should you know when planning your next shop or office fitting? We’ve compiled an overview of the six typical stages applied to your shop or office fitting, plus a list of frequently asked questions.
Initial brief – For the best results much collaboration is needed, so our team of fitters strive up-front to understand your site, team and needs completely.
Site analysis – We visit your site to measure every detail, analyse pedestrian traffic, inspect the natural light quality, address planning law requirements and much more.
Planning and design – Next, we begin planning and design of your shop or office fitting and provide 3D layout drawings for a virtual walk-through before construction.
Manufacturing – Using computer-aided fabrication and estimation systems, our dedicated facility in Silverwater manufactures sophisticated shop fittings in a highly cost-efficient manner.
Project management – Our project management includes any final council paperwork and liaison with the tradespeople who will complete electricals, plumbing and painting.
Installation – We oversee the delivery and on-site installation of all manufactured works, for clients based throughout Australia.
Our work spans all client briefs, for large and small sites all around Australia, so we can work with you on any stage – or all stages. We can design, manufacture, project-manage and install major projects involving structural work, or complete a fast fitout inside a ready-to-go building envelope. We can work with our in-house or contract team, and also with your designers and tradespeople.
There are too many variables to give an estimate per square metre of fitout. It depends on how complete your space is – whether it has a ceiling, floor, shopfront or any other features – and whether you want finishes at $30 per square metre or $50. Just contact us and we’ll arrange an inspection and a tailored quote.
As above, it depends on your particular job and location. In some areas, council approval can take three months; in others it’s a week. A standard shop size of between 80 – 120 square metres will take around four to six weeks to fit when there are no major structural works involved.
Our experience spans all base building systems and primary mechanical systems, including all certification, along with the following works:
Once the base building work is complete, we can provide you with a range of interior fittings such as joinery (including shopfronts, service counters, showcases, wall display units and kitchen or bathroom joinery), workspaces, reception counters, foyers, meeting rooms, breakout facilities and much more. See our Projects page for details of our work.
We offer ongoing maintenance and servicing. Just speak with your project manager to find out how we can help you further.
