The 4,300sqm project was delivered in 16 weeks and involved the refurbishment of two floors of an existing building to house Breville’s Sydney-based Australian business and the group’s R&D facility and corporate head office. The fitout saw see Breville relocate from their existing accommodation in Botany.
In addition to the general office fitout including showrooms to accommodate the group’s brands, FDC constructed four specialist test kitchens and engineering rooms and also relocated Breville’s entire Model Workshop (R&D Facility) to the new premises in order to consolidate all departments under the one roof.
The project was delivered in conjunction with Arnold Lane Designers, Overland Solutions and Cardno.
