Australia’s largest and oldest bloodstock auctioneer William Inglis & Son Limited called on McCormack to deliver an extensive time-driven construction management and refurbishment project at their impressive Oaklands complex.
With multiple moving parts, McCormack’s relationship building, stakeholder coordination and project management expertise was integral in ensuring the handover date was met. Responsible for the entire construction management of the project, McCormack worked with architecture and interior design firm, Steve McIldowie Partners and Wrap Engineering to achieve an impressive end result.
Starting in the foyer, natural timber curved walls and a clean, spacious, streamlined design hint at what’s to come. The introduction of Baux panels in the auditorium works to manage the acoustics and also provides an intriguing aesthetic in the large space. The beautifully intricate designs of the panels and stunning curved timber walls together with luxurious carpet and feature lighting add a contemporary twist to the auditorium. Outdoors, the Vergola and generous deck ensure the space can be used in all weather. The addition of unique patterned tiles in the restaurant add a creative element to the overall design, and the modern stainless-steel kitchen ensures functionality where needed.
