Project Size:
5,676 m2

Located at 100 Broadway Chippendale, the layout of this space includes formal reception, breakout spaces, private offices, high-tech learning spaces, meeting rooms, kitchens and hot desk areas.

The project combined an extremely tight budget and a challenging programme, involving the construction and delivery of 6 floors concurrently. With various site restrictions (including subcontractor quality, coordination with base building services, tenanted floors surrounding the work site, and shared lifts for goods transport), our team managed to successfully deliver the project early, defect-free, ready for the Graduate School of Health’s occupancy in September 2019.

We worked closely with UTS’ Facilities Management team and consultants to expedite the build process, resulting in a successful outcome for the client and all involved.

From the outset, SHAPE demonstrated a client-focused approach, working collaboratively with UTS ‘ internal departments, consultants and contractors. Through their open and upfront communication style and commitment to driving programme, SHAPE was able to deliver above expectations, having handed the space over in advance of the agreed contract PC date.
