“ How we helped SHAPE Group’s client Urban Growth (formerly Landcom) create a contemporary space for their staff to enjoy”

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 creation of a new staircase including glass and timber.

 Project Requirements

SHAPE Group was contracted by Urban Growth (formerly Landcom) to create a contemporary new space that their staff could enjoy. A modern fitout was the primary request, although Urban Growth needed to ensure that the fashionable design would not age too quickly, providing a space that the company could stay in for some years. Using a mix of neutral colours, clean lines and fashionable fittings, Urban Growth achieved this balance of classic and contemporary, resulting in a professional and innovative office environment.

SHAPE Group then sought out a Steel Fabrication partner who could deliver on Urban Growth’s objective that was to deliver a high quality project outcome that was handed over on time to meet their move in date.

SHAPE chose to partner with Dunsteel Group because of their impressive level of experience, innovation and in-house capabilities. Dunsteel’s consultative approach and high-level design processes matched that of SHAPE’S enabling the creation of a timeless and innovative working space for Urban Growth.

The Dunsteel Group Approach

Having worked with Dunsteel on a previous project, SHAPE had experienced Dunsteel’s commitment and precision on producing quality work on time and on budget. Being a family business, Dunsteel provided a personal, professional and friendly approach with regular communication throughout the project from start to finish.

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, has cemented their position as one of Australia’s leading Steel Fabrication companies. Dunsteel worked tirelessly to create a beautiful new staircase with glass and timber that helped create the desired look that Urban Growth were seeking.

The results

SHAPE Group and their client Urban Growth were delighted with the outcome of the project and with Dunsteel’s impressive designs and high quality work. Dunsteel partnered well with SHAPE offering professionalism and expertise to deliver a contemporary new office space for Urban Growth within the time constraints.
