OFFICE ACHIEVES WORK-LIFE BALANCE

WITH the odds stacked against them, Fitco (Trading as Innovare) overcame a number of construction challenges to deliver an office any business would be proud of and one most would even like to call home.

The Place Bulimba showroom sales office combines the elegance of a luxury home within a thriving real estate agency.

After being awarded the tender to give the property a facelift, Innovare discovered several faults which escalated the original plan.

The project management company had to repair the drainage, replace the roof, relocate internal structures and upgrade the electricity system within the same timeframe.

The result is an entrance which wouldn't be out of place in a multimillion-dollar home and which transitions into a modern back office that fosters collaboration.

Innovare's Duncan Patterson says by utilising its network of preferred subcontractors the project was delivered ahead of schedule and without sacrificing quality.

"We specialise in upmarket projects in the residential sector which works well with high-quality office fitouts," Duncan says.

"We are fortunate enough to have a great group of employees that go above and beyond to deliver a standard even the client wasn't anticipating."

The upmarket showroom sets a new benchmark for standard real estate offices, equipped with a galley kitchen, welcoming boardroom and open-plan waiting area with fireplace. This emulates Place's reputation as a leader in prestige property.

Duncan says the response to the finished product has been overwhelmingly positive, with recognition from Place clients, competing real estate agencies, other builders in the industry and Bulimba locals who wish 'it was their house'.
