The transformation of 220 St Georges Terrace consisted of the upgrade and refurbishment of the ground floor (both external and internal), Levels 4-10 tenant and core areas, windows to light wells, refurbishment of lift car finishes and the creation of an End of Trip Facility in the upper car park.
While Swan Group's Projects Division managed a considerable amount of work in a restricted timeframe, there was also great consideration given to the tenants remaining in the building on Levels 1-3. The delivery team worked closely with both the facility management and tenant representatives to ensure that minimal disruption was caused at any time, even while working in the lobbies of the tenanted levels.
Well done to the Swan Group higher management team made up of Elliot Drury (Project Manager), Simone Permain (Project Assistant) and Bailey Love (HSE Coordinator) who was instrumental in the monitoring and management of HSE on site. The client's designers, Express Interior Design, created a contemporary but timeless theme that runs through the lobbies and lift areas.
Included in the scope was the replacement of all the rear windows and those facing into the entirely enclosed courtyard. After identifying a number of logistical issues involved in the delivery and erection of full height scaffolding, Swan Group proposed and implemented a Swinging Stage to work from, yielding time and safety benefits, after carrying out comprehensive Safe Working Method Statements and providing thorough group training on site.
The End of Trip Facility is another successful scheme in a growing portfolio of projects of this type. Again, our delivery team faced several challenges relating to the restricted site, tight program and requirement for the building and car park to run undisrupted. Swan Group worked in partnership with the client project team to provide ongoing solutions and input into buildability, logistics and securing approvals. The end result is a sleek and modern separated male/female toilet & shower facility with secure bike storage for up to 26 bikes.
Swan Group is proud to complete another Perth fitout for Knight Frank project management and we are grateful to our supply chain for performing yet again under demanding conditions.
