Hobart Office Refurbishment

Two of our ACT Team members were recently sent on a three-month secondment to complete an office refurbishment project in Hobart, Tasmania.

Delivery Model:

Hobart, TAS

3 months

Project Size:
1,000 m2

The Project was managed by our ACT Team with Canberra Site Manager Blade Shooks sent for the job as he is an easy-going and adaptable all-rounder. Canberra Project Engineer Justin Carmody accompanied him for the project startup, progress meeting and handover.

The scope included the demolition of the existing space to create an open plan work area, and additional kitchen breakout space and quiet zones, the team also upgraded bathrooms and added locker rooms. Due to the job’s wharf location, the team worked closely with Tas ports and AMSA as the bathroom’s drainage had to be accessed via barge by the plumbing contractor.

This project also posed the extra challenge of working during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Freight delays to Tasmania were mitigated through constant contact with key stakeholders and locking in critical orders early so they would still be delivered on time.

After previously building a great relationship with this client on past projects, SHAPE was trusted to work directly with them to resolve any design concerns, eliminating the need for external engineers and architects, and resulting in a smooth building process and a very satisfied client.

“Working with you guys for the last few months has been a pleasure. The processes and professionalism that SHAPE has in its culture and should not be underrated.”
