Carlton United Breweries (CUB) was looking to upgrade to a more prestigious location as well as install a high-quality bar area for both training and entertaining clients and guests.

The scope of works included:

  • An inter-tenancy stairway
  • World class bar area
  • Training rooms
  • Offices
  • Workstations
  • Breakout areas

The impressive ceiling height of 5.8 metres to one of the levels created a high level of difficulty for construction of the bulkhead with the team working tirelessly to install the impressive curved feature. The bar included 16 different types of beer and cocktails on tap, all piped back to a large cool room which required a large amount of coordination to install the required services.

During the course of construction, CUB subleased the top floor of the building. This required SHAPE to back-fill the previously cut stair penetration and to work closely with the architects and consultants to make sure that the densification of staff in the remaining three floors was implemented without affecting the programme.
