Museum of Contemporary Art

March 4, 2015

Museum of Contemporary Art officeSydney Building Projects were the successful contractor for our recent strip out, refurbishment and fitout of Level 5 of the Museum of Contemporary Art for a commercial letting.

When negotiations with the Tenant over alterations to the base fitout to accommodate the Tenant’s own preferences slowed the MCA works, Sydney Building Projects were pro-active in providing revisions to designs and agreeing these with the consultant teams and, as a result of their co-operation and diligence were appointed by the Tenant to carry out the Tenant’s element of the works.

Negotiations and re-design took time and in the event Sydney Building Projects needed to carry out the fitout for both MCA and the Tenant, in value over $2.5M, within 9weeks. With the co-operation of MCA and the Tenant to cover some nominal acceleration costs Sydney Building Projects were able to bring the combined projects to completion in time for the Tenant to move in with very few defects to deal with.

We have found their management of quality, cost and program very good. Sydney Building Projects have also dealt extremely well with maintaining security and safety in all areas affected by the work and co-operating with the transit of staff and materials across common areas of the building which is an extremely busy working art gallery. Their staff have been polite and helpful and we look forward to working with Sydney Building Projects again in the future.
