Case Study 1 - Amora Jamison Hotel Sydney

Clients Objectives

Our client had a redundant bar area which was dated, and an inefficient use of space. Their objective was to turn this space into conference rooms that would produce additional income. We were approached by their head designer who was frustrated with the exorbitant quotes they’d received from other building companies.

The Challenge

Our main challenge was to create a high quality fit out for a discerning market at an affordable cost. The build itself also had complications in that we had to build in an operating hotel environment, plus there were work hours restrictions due to the airline layover facilities also being operated by the hotel.

There was also a range of high-end imported materials incorporated into the construction, which created challenges regarding coordination of ordering and installation at various points in the project.

Our Approach

Formacon amended the scope of the project in order to utilise some of the existing elements within the building which reduced the amount of work required and allowed a more efficient build. We also employed our own carpentry partitioning and fit-out trades people which enabled us the flexibility to accommodate the clients requirements around disruption to their patrons.

Formacon also developed an accelerated program which allowed for the timely installation of the imported materials, which also resulted in the ability to create forward bookings for the new space making it instantly viable as a new revenue centre for the client.

Outcome

We saved our client 30% from the previous best quoted price they’d received and managed to complete the project earlier than the agreed contract completion date.
