We love working on new projects with our existing clients, and we love all things local – so we were very excited to guide Optalert, who we had previously found space and relocated around the corner from us in Richmond.
See how we added some colour and life (and a pool table) to a quality existing fitout.
Unless a client has an appetite and resources for a full fitout, we recommend searching for a good quality, existing fitout – the trick is assessing what potential fitouts will be cost-effective and simple to modify, have a reasonable landlord to negotiate with, and a layout that meets your organisation’s needs. Whilst this is not always possible and sometimes the search net needs to be cast wider, Optalert were able to secure accommodation walking distance from their existing space with a high quality fitout just wanting a little love to bring it back to life.
BRM Project’s expertise was sought to freshen up the future space, adjust it to Optalert’s requirements and improve the facilities for the staff, whilst working to a conservative budget.
With Scott Coles, Optalert’s CEO, in Sydney and the marketing run remotely from Brisbane, Optalert understood BRM Projects would be able to locally co-ordinate the design and project management for the Melbourne’s fitout and relocation together with the make good and handover of the existing space.
“BRM Projects excelled beyond my expectations” says Scott. "I needed a local project manager that I could trust and give me peace of mind."
"BRM had excellent communication skills to guide us and listen to our needs, understood the project parameters and supported us throughout the project right through to the move, make good and handover. Whilst relocating, we took the opportunity to fine-tune our logo and corporate direction and BRM Projects worked with the entire management to incorporate our changes throughout the delivery.”
It’s not every day we can walk from our office to the client’s old space and then the new one! Thank you to Scott, Andrew and the team for allowing us to assist once again, and we wish Optalert every success with their suite of revolutionary safety products.
