Early Contractor Engagement
Cushman & Wakefield
Engaging early to mitigate risks
A world-leading tech-giant, Adobe sought to create a best-in-class, innovative workplace. Our challenge was to ensure that their key decision-makers, based over-seas, were still apart of the journey.
Through an early engagement approach, our partnership during the design documentation phase allowed for the integration of critical construction. Along with extensive on-site investigations, our team was able to identify potential problems early during design completion and to develop solutions in collaboration with PTID and Cushman & Wakefield.
This integrated process allowed our team to eliminate cost risks and provide greater certainty around quality. Combined with streamlined construction methodologies, our NSW team completed the project two weeks ahead of schedule.
Communicating with overseas stakeholders
With the tech giant’s key decision makers based in Silicon Valley “communication was critical in the delivery of this project,” explains Debbie Caminiti, Adobe’s internal Project Manager. “Through weekly progress reports and photos, [the Schiavello] team gave me absolute confidence in progress,” she continues.
Over and beyond were the weekly video fly-through. Watching these and the site progression was always a highlight.
Following the successful delivery of level 27, our NSW team has been engaged for another level of Adobe’s Australian head office.
The team earned my trust and comfort, and I am very grateful we have multiple projects together. [Considering the global challenges at play] the relationship you share with Cushman & Wakefield has been one of the most enjoyable parts of working with the Schiavello team. Truthfulness even through difficult discussions, a can-do and no-fuss attitude throughout all aspects of the journey, and a sense of humour always helped too.
– Debbie Caminiti, Project Manager Adobe
Director Christopher Schiavello says "we are thankful for the relationship we have grown with Adobe and it is not taken for granted. This, and every other project, is an opportunity to strengthen our relationship further by exceeding expectations.”
Recycled furniture for zero landfill
Our cultures aligned through more than a sense of customer service, extending to a passion for environmental impact. A core value of both Adobe and Schiavello, we sought to avoid landfill by re-using, recycling, and finding furniture a second home through our Furniture for Charity programme.
The final space
The final space sees a collection of bite-sized neighbourhoods supported by breakout spaces, collaboration zones, a new tech café, a large Customer Meeting room and space, meeting rooms, and focus rooms sprawled throughout. Adobe’s dual level fitout has produced a highly functional and visually spectacular space; designed to accommodate their steady growth, culture, and aspirations as a leading tech company.
A trusted partner of Cushman & Wakefield, Schiavello continues to please our clients by delivering high quality fitouts in both challenging timeframes and circumstances, with a no-fuss attitude. The entire project life-cycle experience is made even more enjoyable with their experienced and dedicated team as they continue to exceed expectations through a consistent, reliable, responsive, and professional approach.
