Canam’s team supplied Beam Global a complete ‘turnkey’ solution from design and consent, through to handover on this fast track design & build tenant fitout. Construction of a dozen offices, reception area, meeting rooms, breakout and kitchen covering 800m2 were all successfully completed and handed over inside the 8 week contract programme.

Following an intensive client briefing and design phase, we worked with our designers to prioritise the release of the working drawings so we could identify and procure long lead in time items consecutive with the consent process. This enabled us to optimise the time available and meet the clients fixed occupation date. Despite the tight deadline we were able to provide innovative design solutions such as the impressive sliding folding wall to the breakout area, quality bespoke cabinetry, display shelving and a high level of acoustic rating to the boardroom.

The difficult access to the building and the absence of a goods lift meant that all materials had to be manually carried up 5 flights of stairs. However, having control of the design and our own labour force meant that we were able to overcome the physical obstacles as well as accommodate a number of design changes requested by the client during the contract, absorbing these into the overall programme.
