The design process is not static. A project may change due to potential buildability, functionality and cost issues that arise during the design and construction processes.
Where certain amendments are necessary, the contractor collaborates with the design team to maintain the project’s design intent. Just as a designer endeavours to interpret the needs of the client to design their project, Premis is committed to understanding the objectives of the brief and the designer’s vision, so we can build and deliver the work to the complete satisfaction of the client.
Measures such as the implementation of staged programs may be crucial in live environments. When Premis completed a project for the Murphy Pipe and Civil head office in Newstead, we relocated staff and front-of-house facilities across two storeys in a two-stage program that resulted in entirely undisturbed business operations.
Another consideration for live environment projects is the timeline. To overcome time constraints, split shifts and night work may be necessary. Premis satisfied a tight deadline in the delivery of a new environment for BlueSky Alternative Investments in Brisbane’s CBD. Builders worked in and around staffed hours to ensure that the client could occupy the venue immediately following the expiration of their previous tenancy.
Premis is particularly interested in maintaining and enhancing company brand in these partnerships, and testament to this is an environment we completed for Brisbane law firm Hopgood Ganim in 2015. Determining who would deliver a premium refurbishment over 3 floors at their inner-city location, the client consulted with our Operations Director, Tim Awyzio who delivered their original environment 15 years ago.
With an emphasis on maintaining the traditional aesthetic, the updated facility remains true to brand as well as providing for current and future demands. This approach can be universally applied to commercial projects, and is part of the Premis methodology.
