Morgan Stanley - Chifley Tower

Financial trading continues throughout high end project

After acquiring the 42 storey Chifley Tower building, global financial services company Morgan Stanley required offices within the building that were appropriate for a major financial services organisation. Morgan Stanley also needed to continue all operations throughout the project. The solution was a carefully staged program with constant client communication. SHAPE worked with Morgan Stanley in Sydney and Hong Kong to coordinate all activities, especially those that affected business functions such as data, audio visual capability and security.

Value engineering delivers significant savings

The design specified finishes were of the highest quality, in materials such as timber veneers and marble, while a feature staircase represented significant expenditure. SHAPE undertook an extensive program of value engineering, with items such as the stairwell and boardroom details delivered well below original cost, while providing a similar aesthetic effect. In order to meet a demanding program with minimum disruption, the SHAPE team carried out 18 weeks of double shifts to complete this project on time.
