A Major Makeover for City Commercial Property

190 Flinders Street is a commercial building in the heart of the Adelaide CBD.

Sarah was engaged by Nelson Architects to provide the 1990’s building with a modern makeover to the lobby and the ground floor tenancies, a complete refurbishment of Levels 3 and 4, as well as construction of new lock-up storage and bathroom facilities in the basement.

The project was completed while the building was still tenanted on the other levels, and Sarah’s team scheduled works to minimise disruption to ongoing commercial activities.

Construction challenges included the discovery of water damage in the basement which threatened to delay ground floor works.

Sarah’s flexible and knowledgeable team redesigned the program to mitigate program delays, and developed alternative construction methodologies to avoid further damage while the basement condition was assessed.
