||Project and Development Services|
02 The Opportunity
In September 2020, Cushman & Wakefield’s Project & Development Services team was engaged by our client to deliver the refurbishment of its existing office facility in Canberra.
Built in the early 2000s, the existing fit-out was a traditional workspace with large L-shaped desks and an excessive amount of enclosed offices. Over time and to increase the work point density, the client had installed additional desks in offices, meeting rooms and also corridors as the group was experiencing accommodation pressure within their local property portfolio.
03 The Solution
The flexible design and the increased work point capacity meets not only the end user’s future workforce but also provides a fully equipped agile working environment easily adapted for other workspace users and contractors.
Several challenges were faced during construction, including delays caused by COVID-19 and base building works, as well as managing a multitude of stakeholders from various Government organisations.
04 The Result
Quote from Cushman & Wakefield Member
"The Collie Street refurbishment was an exciting opportunity for the Cushman & Wakefield PDS team as it gave us an opportunity to rejuvenate a tired facility that was imperative to the operations of the Defence ERP program. The project was a resounding success, delivered on schedule and within the domain of the nominated budget."
