Level 4, 417 St Kilda Road, Melbourne
With property investment management company Newmark Capital leasing out their current office space to a new tenant, design and construct specialist McCormack were asked to help relocate the company to a vacant space within the same building – an A-grade office building on the premier boulevard of St Kilda Road in Melbourne. McCormack faced the challenge of completing the full design and construct project within eight weeks before the new tenant moved in to Newmark’s current office.
When such tight timeframes are involved, no services documentation is provided, which meant the McCormack design and construct team had to utilise the existing base building services contractors to deliver the best solution to service Newmark’s needs and requirements. In collaboration with GrayPuksand, who provided initial plans for the office fitout and some initial design features such as the open ceiling within the workspace area, the project was successfully delivered. A ‘New York’ loft design was created that included painted open ceilings within the workspace area, and a sophisticated industrial look for the boardroom and meeting rooms, giving the space a Manhattan feel. Exposed aluminium was powder-coated in a ‘Black Satin’ finish with vertical and horizontal mid-rails to finish off the look with a touch of modern class. From initial design phase right through to relocating existing furniture on the date of the move, McCormack showcased their expertise as office fitout and design and construct specialists.
