Schiavello is proud to be the delivery partner for Dentsu Aegis Network (DAN) for the national upgrade of their offices across Australia.

Our Early Engagement model allows our team to assist DAN throughout every step of the property and construction process; by providing a holistic solution from strategy to design management, construction and support during operations.

Schiavello has since delivered a high-end, turnkey solution for DAN in Sydney and Perth. Architecturally designed by Woods Bagot, the Perth office features a stunning reception and a vibrant breakout space.

We’re also assisting DAN with their upcoming fit-outs projects, which are already underway across Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

International Women’s Day is a worldwide celebration of women’s achievements.

We believe in recognising the successes of women in all facets of life. So, we’d like to introduce Amanda, Diana and Deanne; just a few of the women who make Schiavello who we are.

As part of our induction process, Schiavello’s Tullamarine HQ recently hosted our interstate new starters.

Heralded from SA and NSW, the new starters landed at Melbourne Airport and hit the ground running. Teams of two embarked on the ‘Schiavello Amazing Race’ navigating several iconic landmarks associated with Schiavello. The SA Construction team reigned victorious as they completed all challenges and were first to arrive at the hotel.

Our fresh faces had a meet and greet with Senior Management including Managing Director, Peter Schiavello. They were also taken on a factory tour by one of our founders, Joe Schiavello. Here, they traversed our 90,000sqm manufacturing facilities – the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. Joe spoke of the company’s growth from its humble beginnings as a partition manufacturer to who we are today.

An exciting chapter awaits our talented new staff. Welcome to the family!

James McCurry returns to Schiavello as Construction Manager for Victoria, leading a new team created specifically for new build construction.

Across three decades, James has built his experience over various disciplines as a carpenter, foreman, Site Manager, then operating a residential construction business. James was previously a Project Manager at Schiavello nurturing strong relationships with architects and designers. He was the key driver for the seven-storey extension at Australian Catholic University in Melbourne.


Based on designs by PTID, Schiavello has custom-built a curved two-tone, acoustic panel and timber-look ceiling for The University of Melbourne.

The custom-made fixtures have been designed for seamless integration with the unique curved ceiling panels. The design allows the modern chilled beam mechanical system to cool the area without sacrificing the strong acoustic properties of the teaching spaces. More

Schiavello is proud of our ongoing commitment to creating equal opportunities for Indigenous Australians. Headed by Olympic hurdler, Kyle Vander-Kuyp, Schiavello’s Indigenous Participation Plan was introduced last year. Since then, the program has taken a multi-faceted approach to creating employment opportunities for young Indigenous Australians, donations to local Indigenous communities and building lasting relationships.

The partnership with Worawa Aboriginal College, Healesville, has culminated in one of Schiavello’s largest donations of furniture. While on a visit to the college, senior Schiavello staff saw an opportunity to support the community and give a second life to used furniture otherwise destined for landfill.


The recent nominations add to the growing list of accolades received by DEWNR’s South Australian offices.

The Property Council’s Innovation and Excellence Awards has listed the DEWNR office as a finalist for ‘Best Workplace Project’ and ‘Best Development’. The workplace fit-out project is one of 10 shortlisted in the category and only one of two finalists from South Australia.

Early last year, the project was awarded the Green Building Council of Australia’s maximum 6 Star Green Star – Interiors V1 Certified rating within the first round of assessment.

The Master Builders Association of South Australia recognised the project with a commendation for Excellence in Environmental & Sustainable Construction – Commercial.

And most recently, the project led to Schiavello Construction being awarded the South Australia CitySwitch Partnership of the Year Award for our collaboration with DEWNR.

It’s back to school for the NSW Construction team, as we kick off another great year with an exciting project for Marie Bashir.

Schiavello Construction will be refurbishing classrooms, constructing two new lift shafts (over four storeys), upgrading fire services and creating a brickwork mural.

The existing D101 lecture theatre at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is well into its transformation into a collaborative study space. The new internal layout is designed to cultivate the minds of future technology leaders and decision makers.

The refurbishment will see the traditionally tiered lecture theatre transformed into a multi-zoned student learning and communal study hub. The layout confidently takes advantage of the existing theatre structure by scattering several study spaces across the multiple levels.


As our presence in South Australia continues to grow, we are pleased to announce a new appointment to our Construction team – Dale Sweeney.

Dale joins our SA team as Construction Manager, bringing with him an incredible knowledge base acquired through 15 years of industry experience.

His experience has seen him work on projects both in Adelaide and London across commercial fit-out, new build and major construction projects.

Dale’s career highlights include St. Andrews Hospital, Health Partners Dental and Optical projects and the Berri Hospital redevelopment.

Dale brings a competitive edge to Schiavello SA and we’re looking forward to adding his experience and leadership to our team.
