SHAPE was appointed to complete the fitout of WeWork’s third Melbourne location at 222 Exhibition St. In the WeWork mould, the facility was to be a co-working space complete with member offices, community pantries, phone booths, AV enabled meeting facilities, wellness/ games rooms and an extensive outdoor terrace area.


Delivery Model:

Melbourne, VIC

16 weeks

Project Size:
4,500 m2

As an ECI (Early Contractor Involvement) project SHAPE were involved from the design development stage where SHAPE completed the design management inclusive
of coordinating all council and building surveyor and authority approvals.

Working closely with WeWork, and the project consultants, SHAPE developed the project documentation to meet the client brief from design development through to tender and construction.

One of the key challenges of the project was the extensive upgrade of base building infrastructure which saw the introduction of new submains, and new mechanical condensers to serve the three floors all of which had to be completed under a compressed construction programme to meet WeWork’s aggressive programme targets.

Ultimately the project was delivered on time to the delight of WeWork and it’s members, providing WeWork with another flagship facility to add to its collection. Learn more about WeWork’s co-working spaces here.
