Office Fitout Solution Case Study – Specialised Sourcing

The Client

We were approached to provide an Office Fit Out Solution to some issues a client of ours was encountering across their offices throughout Australia. Our client is a well-established organisation with close to 40 years experience providing professional strata and community title management

The Challenge

Our client required office fit out solutions across multiple locations and faced challenges regarding; different desk colours and types, different product suppliers, office-chair ergonomic issues, overpriced reception furniture, inconsistent sizing and long waiting times. This can turn into an extremely costly, frustrating and time-consuming process and hence CostSmart were engaged to coordinate this for them.

The Solution

We created a complete design solution for our client that maintained consistency across all office furniture components. Through an ergonomic analysis and bulk procurement of each furniture piece directly from the manufacturer, we were able to create substantial savings of over $100,000 over the past year for our client’s multiple offices. Concurrently, strictly adhering to Work Health & Safety standards throughout the process.

The Outcome

This has been a significant job over the past year as CostSmart directly managed the procurement phase and coordinated the installation teams across Australia (usually after hours) to implement the new office fit-outs for eight of the company offices. The scope of the job included; variable workstations, ergonomic office chairs, flip top and boardroom tables, indoor plants, cupboards and credenzas, reception desks and lounges, coat racks, fridges, microwaves, TV’s, laptops, monitors, surface-pro and mobile devices. Our coordination of the installation teams enabled fast, seamless implementation of the customised office fit-out products and timely movement from leased premises. Throughout this project, our client remained open and operating, business-as-usual the entire time.
