In 2014, Swan Group was awarded the refurbishment and fitout of the Aurecon offices across 3 floors at 863 Hay Street. The fitout programme ran simultaneoulsy with the base build due to time constraints so Swan Group worked closely with the principal contractor at all times.
Working under designers, Hassell our dedicated project team delivered the extremely high specification project incorporating ‘showcase’ exposed services throughout within the available timeframe and under budget. As requested by the client, we ensured the project gained 5 Star Green Star certification.
The fitout consisted of works to meeting rooms, focus rooms, breakout areas and finishes to large balcony.
The main focal point of the project was the bespoke floating stair case spanning all three levels, however, before construction began the staircase package came in significantly over the client’s budget after receiving prices from their partnering supplier in WA. Swan Group managed to achieve the same specification and outstanding results by sourcing and collaborating with a supplier in Melbourne.
We also took charge of generating the shop drawings and getting the American Oak panelling cut in Melbourne and transported to site in Perth. The precisely cut panelling was then installed on site by directly employed Swan Group joinery operatives. By proactively sourcing the staircase from VIC, we achieved the completion date and kept within budget to the delight of the client.
