The McCormack work portfolio is here to inspire and encourage you to think about just how important office design is – not only to your brand and your business, but also to your employees and their wellbeing – so go on, be inspired!

Here are just six of McCormack’s best office design and construct projects:

Newmark Capital

This A-grade office building on the premier boulevard of Melbourne’s St Kilda Road showcases McCormack’s design and construct expertise.  In collaboration with GrayPuksand, McCormack delivered a stylish New York loft design that includes painted open ceilings, contemporary lighting and a sophisticated industrial look in the boardroom and meeting rooms. The space has a sleek Manhattan feel that sets the tone for property group Newmark Capital’s own bold, innovative vision.

Design & Build Recruitment

Design & Build Recruitment contracted McCormack Property Services for an urgent office design and construct fitout. The brief was to create an open and inviting workspace where employees could focus on work – and also have fun – with a four week delivery date.  McCormack’s project management experts delivered a skilfully designed office for Design & Build Recruitment that has an open, collaborative feel with some quirky fittings (the boardroom table that can be converted into a pool table!).  High-quality finishes incorporate company colours and create a fun, vibrant and innovative environment designed to encourage creativity and productivity.


McCormack Property Services new office fitout for global talent management company WME | IMG is located in Melbourne’s prestigious St Kilda Road business district. WME | IMG wanted to push the boundaries and create an edgy space that reflected their innovative, powerhouse brand. And whilst the fitout had to be purpose-built to work as an office space – it also needed to cater for large client functions. McCormack’s overall industrial-glam element reinforces the WME | IMG brand and consists of bold polished concrete floors, metallic grey walls and streamlined furniture. Enormous bi-fold doors transform the space into a function area, and the open-plan design creates a sense of space and light whilst still providing smaller break-out areas for meetings. McCormack Property Services flexible, functional and contemporary build provides the perfect backdrop for WME | IMG to effectively build their brand and impress visitors and clients alike.


Puma’s National Headquarters, located 40mins south from Melbourne’s CBD, was a tired and rundown 1960’s building. Puma approached McCormack Property Services to refurbish their office into a modern, functional working environment that would provide a socially vibrant, yet collaborative workplace for all employees. The design required a thoughtful, modest and creative solution that would maximise the use of the existing building and ensure the Puma brand, values and culture were fully reflected within the work space. McCormack Property Services delivered the project during full occupation so Puma could maintain business continuity.  This project demonstrates how a successful design/builder/client relationship can result in an inspiring workplace that improves working efficiency and supports growth.

Perpetual Trustees

Financial services group Perpetual Trustees contracted McCormack Property Services to design and construct a complete fitout and refurbishment of the existing Perpetual tenancy in Collins Street. The building was already occupied so the project needed to managed with as little disruption to the existing tenants as possible.  McCormack Property Services managed the project by overcoming many challenges involved when refurbishing an occupied building without disturbing existing tenants. The McCormack project team’s succinct communication with building stakeholders and subcontractors ensured pick-ups and deliveries were planned and executed as smoothly as possible. The overall feel of the new fitout is vibrant and energised, bringing a corporate aspect into the meeting rooms and workspaces.

Rialto M1 Development

The Rialto Towers is one of Melbourne’s most well-known landmark buildings. McCormack’s design and construct specialists were asked to deliver a high-end, polished result for the new Rialto Management office. The project also called for an amenities upgrade and a security control room with technology integration. McCormack was able to bring the brief to life by delivering a streamlined office design and construct fitout that was not only contemporary and functional but also stylish. McCormack provided a modern management office environment with finishes befitting a premium grade building, complimented by state of the art control room fully automated and capable of self sufficient operation during times of crisis. A Scandinavian industrial feel flows through the office with natural wood tones offset by black window fittings. Feature lighting and modern furnishings add to the appeal of this well-executed office fitout.
