Project Value:
$442,000

Contract Type:
Negotiated

The Vector fitout involved constructing a showroom area in the upper floor of a downtown sub station, and a renewable energy equipment area within the roof space to power the facility.

Canam demolished internal block walls to create a large open space to build display pods to mimic the spaces within a typical household. The roof works involved building a structure to house solar panels for hot water and electricity.

The project encountered difficult working conditions as the building was a running sub station and had no running air-conditioning. This created a very hot environment for workers, and affected the timber framed structure, however, with perseverance, the desired result was achieved.

As this was to be Vector’s Future Homes showroom to showcase the latest technologies to their clients, a high level of finishing was required. The client was very pleased with the outcome of the project.
