Schiavello completed the interior construction for Australia’s leading magazine publisher’s new office, including services upgrade and installation, joinery and all finishes, while Schiavello Systems provided integrated furniture solutions for the updated workplace.

The project was delivered under a design and construct method. Whilst the design was around 80% complete at the time of engagement, it was well over budget. Schiavello was commissioned to resolve this and bring the design up to 100% prior to construction. Schiavello worked closely with Colliers and Bauer Media during the design phase to provide value engineering and design alternatives to ensure the project stayed within their strict budget.

This was quite challenging from an architectural and services perspective because the floor itself was an amalgamation of three separate buildings and three different slab types/finishes. With careful architectural and services design Schiavello was able to complete the works under budget, without compromising the original design intent.
