HOME / DESIGN & BUILD / PROJECT MANAGEMENT
The two main aspects of project management are budget & time, however there are other aspects to an office fitout project that require careful planning and execution to ensure a smooth process and delivery.
“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.”
The common question is: Do I need a permit for my office fitout? The answer is usually yes and the idea of obtaining a permit can be quite daunting. Zircon will obtain the permits required for the project including the Certificate of Occupation.
The timeline is one of the most critical facets to the project, as an extended project results in more employee disruption & extended lease fees. Zircon provides a detailed timeline of the project with a fixed handover date prior to construction with regular progress meetings scheduled.
BUDGET - ZIRCON GUARANTEE
We acknowledge changes happen during a project, therefore we guarantee No Hidden Costs! We Guarantee there will be no costs that have not been agreed and signed off by both parties.
The most essential ingredient to success of project management is clear communication. Our team holds site progress meetings with you and documents the meeting minutes to record every detail and action items so no details are missed.
Zircon carries out an inspection prior to handover to fix any defects and rectify any issues prior to handover. On handover, certificates of the relevant trades, permits and engineering are supplied.
Our staff will be in contact at regular points to follow-up with the project and provide support for anything that is required.
New Aim looked to Zircon Interiors to refurbish any office they required. Working in conjunction with an external design firm KHID, Zircon was engaged to deliver;
- Interior Design
- Project Management
Sourcing well known products & finishes such as Victoria Carpets, the project came a finalist in the top three at the Flooring Association of Victoria Ball Awards.
Being a NFP organisation, Professionals Australia undertook a rigorous selection process before selecting the preferred supplier to undertake the complete refit of our newly purchased building in West Melbourne before selecting Zircon Interiors.
- Key factors in selecting Zircon Interiors included having a fixed price contract, ability to visit a number of their completed fit-outs and talking with past clients of Zircon.
- Our specific job had a tight timeline that was non-negotiable from our perspective and had to be completed to a high standard within budget all of which Zircon were able to achieve and deliver the completed product on time and on budget. Of course there were variations to the original budget as we identified additional items during the build, but these were always identified, scoped, priced and signed off before continuing with the fit-out.
- Having been through several major fit-out projects previously, I was impressed with the planning, direct communication channels and ability to stick to timeframe and budget. Zircon only used the highest quality trades people on the project as well as very informative and helpful design team to assist with colour and fit-out selection. The final fit-out exceeded our expectations and the feedback from staff and visitors has been nothing other than complimentary to the quality and design of the fit-out. As an example of this, our staff kitchen has been photographed by our coffee machine supplier for use in their advertising.
- Therefore, I have no hesitation in recommending Zircon Interiors.
