• ING Banking Head Office Sussex Street – Foyer Refurbishment

ING Entry Foyer

Working primarily outside normal office hours the foyer of this prestigious CBD building was re-lined with “Ozone” glass set on a joinery backdrop with stainless and aluminium decorative trims. The lighting was upgraded and the lift interiors were renewed, one by one.
The building houses 24 hour Bank Help Desk functions and all demolition and construction works had to be kept within restricted areas to allow the foyer to be safe and usable at all times. To maintain the glass panel joints at 1mm with a variation of less than 0.5mm, the supporting structure had to be built to extremely fine tolerances and SBP were instrumental in advising on the margins needed to make up for the inaccuracies of the existing building structure. The Client was extremely pleased with the end result.

• Museum of Contemporary Art Level 5 – Base Building & Tenant Fitout

MCA Office and staff faciilities

First appointed for the Base Building fitout of this office floor – including demolition, air conditioning, fire protection, light and power, ceilings, amenities, floor and wall finishes for open plan offices, – as a result of tight time constraints, overlapping scopes of work and competitive pricing we were also appointed for the tenant fitout.  Once the tenant fitout design was complete and the significant revision of the Base Building fitout accommodated in the scope and pricing SBP had a 9 week accelerated works program to complete both base and tenant fitouts in order that A T Kearney could take occupation 13 August, the last date available for them to move from their existing leasehold.

Accelerated to accommodate a spend in the order of $2.7M in 9 weeks , SBP were able to meet this deadline due to the fast response of our selected sub contractors, Beaver Air Conditioning, Precision Fire and Dewtask Electrical, to accommodate redesign and pricing of air conditioning, fire protection, lighting and ceilings so that the bulk of services could be enclosed in the central movement corridor enabling exposure and painting of the original 1950’s ribbed concrete structure of the floor above.  This to give some 30% of the floor area a sense of height, avoiding bulkheads adversely affecting views of the harbour, and heritage construction of this post war building.  Value engineered with the consultants to balance simplicity with top quality finishes.

• Oxfam Australia – Cooper Street Sydney Office Fitout

Oxfam HO workstations and office fitout

We were recommended to Oxfam mid 2007 by Alan Morgan, General Manager of “Event Operations” at the Royal Agricultural Society (another not for profit organisation) for whom we have carried out a number of quite varied projects over the last 10 years and minor works.  As a result we did some alterations to Oxfam’s Surrey Hills offices in Cooper Street with which they were very happy.  After an expression of interest process, we were commissioned to “Design and Construct” the complete staged strip out, refurbishment and fitout of their existing offices and of the additional space they had leased, (the remainder of the floor) overall around 1,000sqm gross.  The works included new ceilings, gyprock and glass partitioning, floor and wall finishes, kitchen, communications room and data cabling, complete new electrical, exit and emergency lighting installations, sprinkler alterations, mechanical alterations meeting rooms and operable wall, amongst the usual repairs and upgrades.  We carried out all the necessary applications and certification for the Occupancy Certificate.

• Royal Agricultural Society Southee Pavilion  Showground Homebush – Air Conditioning and Operable Partitions

Royal Agricultural Show Southee Pavilion fitout

This design and construct project involved the air conditioning and separation of the huge Southee Pavilion to make it a more attractive venue and more flexible for smaller functions.  5m high operable walls were installed beneath new beams and sound insulated walls reaching 11m into the geodesic roof frame and new air conditioning with platforms and plant on the roof was installed with BMS control.  The project was carried out to a tight program so as not to disrupt valuable function bookings.
