Deakin Downtown

Projects Fitout Deakin Downtown

Renascent was engaged as Construction Managers to deliver the Deakin Downtown high end fitout at the newly completed Tower 2, Collins Square, Docklands. Construction works were completed across levels 12 and 13 over 20 weeks. The tight time-frame included not only the construction but also the letting period. Works included major upgrades of the existing base building services and a large number of meeting rooms with high levels of acoustic performance.

The Audio-Visual package had to be carefully integrated with all other services and architectural features in order to ensure the high levels of performance and functionality expected by Deakin University. In addition to these works, timber veneer wall paneling featured predominantly across the entire project, and blended perfectly with new joinery and furniture.

One of the major challenges of this project was the installation of a tubular ceiling system never used before in Australia. Local and overseas manufacturers were brought together in order to ensure the system was delivered and successfully installed within the project’s program. The project was completed on time, including all commissioning and training, which allowed the client to start operating from the agreed date.
