Finlaysons Lawyers Fit Out
- Lump Sum
Located in the newly-built UCity Building on Franklin Street, Cook Building have recently completed a high-end fit out over 2 levels, each a space of 1300sqm, for Finlaysons Lawyers.
Level 7 comprises a boardroom and meeting rooms all fitted with feature blinds and curtains, while a number of custom steel pot plants add a sense of lush nature and greenery throughout the space. The light-filled communal kitchen, workstations and individual office spaces found at the southern and western side of the building offer a view of the city below.
Level 6 offers a large library and tea point, as well as a “war room”; a large vacant section of floor space used when multiple people are required to work closely together on major cases. Designer furniture has been used throughout giving the space a very luxurious high-end feel.
UCity Building being of both residential and office spaces meant the daily management of noisy works was essential. Where noisy works are traditionally done early or late in the day, the time of works had to be arranged day-to-day with the Building Manager and communicated to residents to keep all parties happy. The shared use of lifts with residential occupants could have created further scheduling challenges but by maintaining proactive communication, Cook Building was able to avoid any conflict.
Another obstacle faced by this project was the already-tight program, which was further compounded by the onset of Covid-19. Due to the implemented travel restrictions, we were also required to find alternatives to certain high-end specified finishes, which were initially to be imported from interstate or overseas. However through our team’s thorough planning and management, Cook Building was able to deliver the project on time and within budget.
