As part of a long term strategy to expand, and attract a wider audience, SnowPlanet engaged Canam Interiors to construct their new function centre within their existing building. The project was programmed to be completed within six weeks, ready for the start of the school holidays, coinciding to take advantage of the additional revenue generated by the new facilities.

The design called for a complete high spec interior fitout within the existing portal frame warehouse, and the new meeting rooms had to perform at least as well as a purpose built facility. Canam worked with the structural engineer to find a solution for the interface between the existing Bondor cladding and the new fitout which called for new fire exits, services penetrations and a structural sub-frame (to suspend a new mechanical system), ceilings, bulkheads and lighting. A folding operable wall complete with large format graphics provides flexibility and reinforces SnowPlanets outdoor activity theme. Canam Joinery supplied all of the timber work and cabinetry including the board room tables which were hard wired into the comprehensive Audio Visual facilities.

Despite this demanding project having large numbers of suppliers and sub-contractors working within a relatively small space to a tight timescale, it was completed ahead of schedule and on budget.
