Australia’s leading health and beauty company, Wesfarmers Health, appointed McCormack as the design and construction contractor for their new office fitout at 637 Flinders Street, an evolving precinct overlooking the riverfront. Boasting a diverse array of workspaces, it caters to both formal and informal settings, ensuring an adaptable environment for its staff.

McCormack had previously completed a high-end spec suite on level 4 with a space of over 3500 sqm, allowing Wesfarmers to move in on a short-term lease in the desired building. This collaborative approach enabled them to work closely with design consultants Studio 103 to conceptualize their new additional two floors, setting the stage for McCormack to bring this vision to life. The project finished 2 months before completion, allowing the client to move in and allow their IT team to implement smart technology early without time restraints. An estimated 300+ employees are expected over the 3 levels.

The project spans an impressive 4454m² floor space, with the fitout encompassing a multitude of multi-purpose areas featuring outstanding design features that are both visually appealing and functional.  Stone is used throughout the fitout with impeccable detail, immediately evident upon entry with the reception area heightened by hidden LED lighting. The combination of polished concrete, open ceilings, and architecturally brilliant designs provides an industrial art gallery vibe. Value management was used, subbing in various materials that achieved the same finish but for a reduced cost whilst maintaining design intent.

We would like to thank the collaborative efforts of all contractors who created a fantastic environment and culture on site throughout the build.  Interact with this project via Linkedin, click here.
