Refurbishment included demolition, construction of new partitions, linings and ceilings, carpentry and joinery, along with a services upgrade.
The Department of Human Services building makeover in Coober Pedy commenced on a Friday and was successfully completed by the following Tuesday. This multi-faceted five day renovation tested the ability of the McMahon Services’ building team to complete a quality job within a very short timeframe.
The refurbishment included demolition, construction of new partitions, linings and ceilings, carpentry and joinery, along with a services upgrade which included electrical work, security (PA & AV), mechanical and plumbing.
Additional works included the replacement of ceiling tiles and insulation, and rectifying the existing ceiling grid to accommodate new tiles.
All work was undertaken and managed by our in-house personnel, including specialist tradespeople such as carpenters, plumbers and electricians.
The dedicated 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 work 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.
