New PlaceMakers store
Project duration: 2.5 years (November 2017 - May 2020)
Fit-out Budget: > $1.2 M
Project Description: The landlord redeveloped the existing PlaceMakers site into a new purpose-built facility for the PlaceMakers branch on the existing site whilst continuing to trade. In that case, the project was divided into 3 stages. The fit-out project involved arranging the new Trade Hall, Showroom space, Drive Thru and Yard area.
My contribution: As a fit-out project manager I have stepped into the project during the practical completion of Stage 1 (New Trade hall and Showroom space) in July 2019. The rest of the project was completed under my management on time and within budget.
Key achievements: The project programme was established in such a way that the operational/trading processes took place without interruption during the migration between stages and the organization of new retail spaces in place of the existing ones.
New PlaceMakers store
Project duration: 12 months (March 2020 - March 2021)
Construction & Fit-out Budget: $ 4.5 M
Project Description: The existing Levin branch is PlaceMakers (Fletcher Building) owned site. The project included the management of the construction part and fit-out. The project was developed in 5 stages. Like in the above project there was required continuity of the trading process at all stages of construction and a fit-out of the new store. The fit-out project was directly tied to the construction phases and involved arranging the new Trade Hall, Showroom space, Drive Thru and Yard area.
My contribution: I was engaged in the project on the feasibility phase and ran through the construction and fit-out bidding process. Also, was pro-actively with construction management and provided support to the Development Manager in part of developing up a construction program and its implementation. I was fully responsible for the delivery of the fit-out project and managing all aspects of the project from start to finish.
Key achievements: The project was delivered on time and well below the budget, taking into account the COVID-19 Lockdown. This was made possible by the timely placement of an order for the production of load-bearing steel structures and other basic elements for the construction of a new building. The closure of the borders in the wake of the pandemic forced me to turn to local suppliers and led to the revision of our own assets in terms of their further alteration/upgrade and subsequent use in the new store. Thanks to this, it became possible to save a significant part of the funds from the project budget.
