Key points

Qantas was a 2 floor fitout, one after the other.  After a rigorous H&S prequalification process via Australia, we got underway on site.  With limited access, careful coordination was required around loading of materials up the tight stairwell.  The fitout contained a new kitchen, board and meeting rooms, utility and lockers area.  With the rest of the area in open plan.  All works had to be planned carefully to avoid clashing with the client’s 24 hour call centre operations.  The most technical aspect of the project was the comms room reduction.  This being the heart of their business needed to be fully operational 24h.  We reduced this room by 12sqm, which required the isolation of sprinkler and power services while maintaining the air conditioning to keep the room at 19 degrees.  We set up dust protection curtains to keep the racks dust free.  We relocated services and installed a gas flood fire protection system.  We completed the project on time and on budget.
