Commercial office & Display Area Design & FitoutCost Per SQM
As part of the refurbishment of the Niche building, the Independent Living Centre was long overdue for a refurbishment and brighter facility to lead them into the future. With the help of a Lotterywest grant, they were able to restructure their business profile, increase staff numbers and offer a showroom facility that professionals and members of the community can enjoy.
A staged approach to this project allowed us to work within ILC’s occupied space without disrupting their business. We created additional offices, opened up a restrictive floor plan to provide improved work flow in open plan areas and upgraded staff facilities, including toilets and breakout areas, to cater for increased numbers. Our efficient and fresh design for the reception area and call centre provides a solid base for streamlining services and improving staff morale.
While the project was lengthy, our on site team were flexible enough to work alongside ILC and ensure the finished interior surpassed everyone’s expectations
