McMahon Services led a five day renovation blitz at the Department of Human Services office in Coober Pedy

Project Manager Petar Kleut headed-up a five day multi-faceted renovation at the Department of Human Services office in Coober Pedy.

The $332,000 overhaul included demolition, construction of new partitions, lining and ceilings, carpentry and joinery, along with a services upgrade which included electrical work, security (PA & AV), mechanical and plumbing work.

Additional works included the replacement of ceiling tiles and insulation, and rectifying the existing ceiling grid to accommodate new tiles.

With works starting on the Friday and completed by the Tuesday, the dedicated in-house team worked 12 hours a day, over the five day period, utilising company owned-plant and equipment to get the job done.

The success of the project was attributed to a number of factors including; the intensive planning process prior to any works commencing; prefabrication of components off-site due to the short timeframe, remote location and lack of local resources; and the close relationship formed with the client, consultants and other key stakeholders through open communication.
