Microsoft Office Fitout

Projex Building Group were engaged to construct the Microsoft Canberra Fitout designed by AMC Architecture. The project was delivered over a nine-week condensed construction period and through a Christmas shutdown period. The objective of the project was to expand the Microsoft tenancy and provide an open plan workstation area, private executive offices, multiple meeting rooms, quiet areas, breakout space, storage, and a kitchenette. The staged handover of the communications room was a critical element of the program to allow Microsoft an additional three weeks to install and commission IT equipment ready for the completion of the new workspace.

  • SHAPE Australia

Australian Public Service Commission, Treasury Building

To allow the Australian Public Service Commission to relocate to the Treasury Building, works were completed across two buildings over four floors, and included the construction of new open workstation areas, meeting rooms and collaboration spaces. The refurbishment included executive suites with ensuites, private meeting rooms and a board room, as well as a Training Centre. To accommodate the APSC’s requirements to relocate due to leasing arrangements, the fit out was completed within eight weeks and handed over on the night of Practical Completion. The seamless transition to commence staff occupation the following business day was testament to the success of the handover.

  • Shaw Building Group

Canberra Hospital Essential Services Infrastructure

The Essential Services Infrastructure project was exceptionally demanding and involved wholesale changes to all components of the hospital’s essential infrastructure. Despite the enormity of the work maintaining all hospital operations was imperative. Covering all major reticulated trunk services on an unprecedented scale, the project involved amongst other civil works, major trenching and excavation under and adjacent to Hospital Road. Access via this critical connecting link was maintained for both vehicular and pedestrian traffic throughout the operation. Shaw Building Group devised and implemented complex programming, sequencing and co-ordination of an exceptionally high order.
