Project: Amway Australia
Franchise: Total Fitouts Hope Island
“This project needed to be performed while still operating our day to day operation and normal trade – this included working in with large group functions and events and minimise function room down time. Work was completed in stages to help facilitate the difficult nature of fitout work and daily trade.
Amway’s goals for this fitout were to downsize our existing operation while utilising the tenancy space to it full capacity. This was achieved by working closely with Total Fitouts team to ensure we still maintained compliance with Australian Standards and Building Code, while not compromising on the final finish or quality of work.
There was an issue with the base building air conditioning system in the ceiling void and where our walls needed to be placed. The Total Fitouts Team worked closely with our certifier to work around this obstacle. We also needed to meet compliance for our Training Room stage for disabled access, Total Fitouts custom made a ramp to meet a very specific requirement to meet code.
The fitout was in an existing tenancy and we were required to match a lot of existing design styles from 10 years ago. The challenge was that some items were made obsolete. Total Fitouts went to great lengths to source a close match to our existing materials. This included door handles and vinyl flooring. Very pleased with the effort and attention to detail to meet our requirements.
It was a pleasure to work with Mick, Dan, Andrew and the team from Total Fitouts. We found them all very approachable for any issues and their sub-contractors were held to a high standard to ensure great quality work through the project. Attention to detail and ability to work with unforeseen change requirements was seamless and nothing was ever an issue. This project was originally proposed to start in October 2017 and was placed on hold until 2018. Between the time of our original contact with Mick and when the tender process started in June 2018, Mick stayed in contact with myself to see how we were progressing. During the tender process Mick was always in contact and asking questions to ensure Total Fitouts submitted the most accurate and complete quote price. This was ultimately what got them across the line for this job. Great work Mick, your communication and attention to detail was greatly appreciated!”
