SHAPE transforms the DeakinPrime property

17 February 2011

DeakinPrime is the Professional Services arm for Deakin University and is located in the Melbourne CBD. Providing an environment for customised training of corporate and large organisations, the transformation of the DeakinPrime facility was critical for the success of their business.

Competing against the likes of the Melbourne Business School and the Melbourne University School of Management, DeakinPrime wanted to provide their clientele with the premier training facility. This includes corporate entertainment areas, a commercial kitchen, formal and informal breakout spaces, video conferencing rooms, semi-open plan layout and offices. The area needed to be flexible enough to accommodate large group functions or individual team activities.

The transformation of the 3,000m2 property was completed under a full project management services and construction management contract. After nearly a year of property searching and design, followed by five months of construction, the project was handed over on 18 November 2010 and was valued at over $5 million. The key features of the property now include the stunning interconnecting curved staircase, custom designer furnishings, custom feature lighting and a custom ceiling grid. SHAPE engaged specialists to integrate the latest audio and visual technology into the facility.

Congratulations to the Victoria team for their successful completion of this end-to-end project.
