“ How we helped SHAPE Group’s client TAL successfully transition into new office space with minimum disruption to staff productivity”

SHAPE Group is an award winning national company with offices located across Australia and is one of the countries largest fitout and refurbishment specialists. For 25 years SHAPE has delivered both large and small fitout and refurbishment projects for some of Australia’s leading government and non-government sector organisations. SHAPE required a trusted steel fabrication partner to assist with the development of operable wall support, stair, slab strengthening, stainless balustrade and glass and glazing support.

Project Requirements

SHAPE was contracted by their client TAL to help transition their move into new office space with the added task of minimising disruption of staff productivity.

SHAPE required a Steel Fabrication partner who could deliver on their promise to TAL which focused on meeting the budget whilst also ensuring a high level of finishes were achieved to deliver a quality fitout space that staff could be proud to call home. The result is a stunning new modern space that encourages collaboration through open plan workspace, breakout areas and internal stairs.

SHAPE chose to partner with Dunsteel Group because of their reputation, expertise and capabilities to complete this complex project. SHAPE quickly developed trust in Dunsteel’s friendly and professional approach. They felt valued as a client due to the proactive involvement from the Dunsteel team from the initial enquiry through to the team managing the on-site work.

The Dunsteel Group Approach

Dunsteel were chosen to work with SHAPE because of their professional, consultative and innovative approach to SHAPE’S requirements. Dunsteel collaborated with SHAPE to take a detailed brief and discuss the project’s in-depth requirements in order to develop a bespoke solution that factored in budget and time to assist with the successful completion of this complex build.

With Dunsteel’s in-house capabilities including their 100+ tonne workshop that has state of the art CNC machinery, a Robotic Beam Line and a Plasma Cutter, they were confident in fulfilling SHAPE’S requirements of creating operable wall support, stair, slab strengthening, stainless balustrade and glass and glazing support to meet the high standards required for the project

The results

SHAPE was happy with the outcome of the project and with Dunsteel’s flexibility throughout the project for both working with other partners and accommodating the need for minimum disruption to TAL staff’s productivity. Dunsteel Group is delighted to have worked with a respected national brand such as SHAPE and look forward to working together on future projects.

What the client says

“I have worked with Dunsteel on 2 major projects and both times they delivered what were complex projects on time, and on budget. Both projects were highly complex and I was impressed with the level of service and communication through the entire process, from design to delivery”
