Westpac Fitout

Client

DW & Co.

Value

$11.5 million

Contract

Negotiated Lump Sum

Project Description

The project consisted of the strip out and new fitout of three office levels, handing over each of the levels one at a time. Time and disruption to the occupied building was minimised by providing the staged approach, including cutting penetrations for communication and hydraulic services at night. Time was an important issue, Lipman had only seven days to clear out each of the three 2,000mfloors before the fitout could begin.

The tight timeframe was compounded by restricted access through the goods lift with joinery carried up the stairs and fabricated on site.

A high level of design intent and the importation of materials and furniture form the United States, Italy, Spain and Germany added further time pressures. Lipman had a seven week timeframe for each level and all the furniture and materials had to be procured for each level as it was completed.

“Lipman's culture and their attitude, meant we were drawn to them based on their authenticity and them being really ‘good blokes’ who were willing to role their sleeves up and get on with it and be part of the cohesive team. They also bought enormous smarts to the bottom line and the feasibility of the project, which we had to prove prior to going to a ‘live’ project.

Lipman as far as the relationships, were outstanding people to work with and continue to be outstanding guys to work with and that obviously comes from the top filtering to each member of the Lipman team that we worked with on site were also quite outstanding and really fit the ‘Lipman Mould’, which is evident of impressive leadership and a strong focus on relationships being what they should be.

The airport project….. Lipman did bring this project in under time, I think it was 5 or 6 weeks early. Overall we were under budget and the really crazy thing that we achieved on that project, which I don’t think has been achieved in this country, is that we opened the hotel the next morning after PC.”
