AFIC Office

About This Project

Level 21, 101 Collins Street, Melbourne

 

The Brief

Australian Foundation Investment Company (AFIC) briefed McCormack with the task of extending their offices in Collins Street, Melbourne, into a neighbouring tenancy. They also required a refurbishment of their current office space.  A primary requirement of the brief was to undertake the modification and refurbishment works during normal business hours to reduce overall costs, whilst creating minimal disruptions to both AFIC and their neighbouring tenant. Both tenants needed to remain fully operational. AFIC’s brief also included alterations and modifications to the base building inter-tenancy configuration. These works were to be undertaken directly for 101 Collins Street management, essentially adding a second client to the project.

Our Solution

Working alongside designers Studio 103, McCormack’s construction management team was able to carry out the modification works on extended weekdays, prior to staff arriving at the office, and on Saturdays. All demolition, inter-tenancy division works and painting was completed on weekends and McCormack was able to erect partitions and hoardings to screen the works from the neighbouring tenant and AFIC staff.

A new open environment was delivered by McCormack that included a large breakout space and additional workstations without reducing the number of offices and meeting room. Existing materials were re-used to ensure consistent finishes and to minimise overall costs. Selective feature elements were incorporated for both function and aesthetics.
