Renascent was appointed by AIA to carry out the fitout of their new offices at 509 St Kilda Road. The project was situated across 2.5 floors.

The two main floors on levels 5 & 6 provided an open plan workspace with approximately 630 workstations, a substantial number of private offices, meeting rooms and informal meeting areas as well as new amenities and kitchens on each floor. Level 7 featured a large refurbished presentation space which opened out on to a new rooftop terrace consisting of a BBQ area, seating areas and basketball court. A specialist communications room was also constructed as part of the project with a full environmental monitoring system.

Complexities included coordination of structural steel within the limited ceiling void amongst existing and new services to support the new operable wall system, installation of the expansive Audio Visual system and the loading of new plant equipment on to the roof with a crane from the adjacent park. The project included a large specialist joinery package consisting of timber ceilings with exposed soffits and timber slat feature walls. The project was completed successfully and on time.
