|CLIENT:||ARMADALE CITY COUNCIL|
|DURATION:||SEPT 2013 - DEC 2014|
Georgiou was awarded the contract by the Armadale City Council to construct a new, four-storey office development, and an additional integrated office fitout for anchor tenant, the Department for Child Protection, in 2013.
The scope of work included the following building elements: four levels of commercial office space; an underground basement carpark; centralised lift and twin stair core; end-of-trip facilities in the basement; new power substation; plant room on the roof; extensive glazed facade treatment; louvre shade structures on the facade; and two separate building entries – one for the public and the other for staff due to security issues.
Georgiou’s design partner for the project was GHD who were previously appointed by the Armadale City Council to prepare a master plan for the new precinct. Georgiou and GHD worked closely during the tender to develop a fit-for-purpose, efficient and aesthetically pleasing building design.
Georgiou was the only proponent to offer a detailed programme and proposal for an integrated office fit-out, demonstrating to the client that Georgiou’s programme and methodology would result in rent revenue being generated earlier than the other proposals.
Additionally, a partnered approach was adopted with the high value mechanical, electrical and facade trade subcontractors, with an upfront agreement to jointly target this project and utilise our combined skills to value manage the design and secure the project.
|DURATION:||AUG 2013 - MAY 2015|
Georgiou was awarded an initial early works contract to carry out services relocation, structural strengthening and retaining works for Healthscope on the Mount Hospital in WA.
Scope of works comprised of: an upgrade of the sprinkler and distribution system including fire water booster pump; strengthening of the existing rear hospital carpark to support new buildings above; new retaining wall structures at the rear carpark and at the base of the Kings Park escarpment for the future building; carpark upgrade works.
A construction management contract model was adopted by the client due to the tight timeframes and undefined scope. The project was technically challenging and required a high degree of planning and coordination in order to prevent any disruption to life critical systems within a live hospital environment.
In September 2013, Georgiou was awarded Stage 2 of works which included the new Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD), new operating theatres, plant room and connection into the existing hospital including fitout.
The new building was constructed on top of the existing carpark which was partly demolished and strengthened.
Georgiou was then awarded Stage 3 compromising a catheter laboratory and further refurbishment and upgrade of power, water, sewerage, communications, fire, security and nurse call systems.
|DURATION:||JUL 2013 - MAR 2015|
Georgiou were awarded this mixed-use, state-of-the-art medical centre and residential development on Cambridge Street in Wembley, WA, in July 2013. Designed as a specialist medical centre, scope of works included the construction of three levels of medical centre, two levels of underground parking (101 bays) and six, two-bedroom residential apartments on the upper floor.
The specialised medical suites include consulting, diagnostic, day surgery and recovery rooms - all requiring the installation of HEPA filters. Georgiou carried out all forward works prior to the building’s construction, resulting in cost and time savings for the client.
Georgiou also used an integrated specialist fitout for the anchor tenant (St John of God) to achieve earlier occupation, some 33 weeks ahead of their original programme. This has resulted in significant time and cost benefits for both the developer and the tenants. Challenges faced by the project team included the 22kva live power lines on the northern elevation requiring the team to implement additional safety controls. Plant and equipment also had to be tracked through from the opposite side of the project which required areas of internal fitout and large portions of the façade to be placed on-hold until very late in the project delivery.
All precast panels installed on the project were manufactured in-house at the Georgiou Precast Facility in Malaga, providing key time and cost savings to the Client. Georgiou engaged with the consultant team during pre-contract negotiations to value-manage the design to achieve time, cost savings and more efficient buildability.
Georgiou’s strong building construction experience, best practice project management and track record for medical developments ensured a quality product delivered on time and schedule.
|DURATION:||AUG 2012 - JAN 2014|
In January 2014, Georgiou delivered one of the highest quality office developments at the time to be constructed outside the Perth Central Business District for internal client, Georgiou Capital.
Located in Stirling, WA, the development is split into four levels of carpark, four levels of commercial office space with the top level reserved for the plant room. In total, the net floor area is 13,000m2 and incorporates 7,800m2 of commercial office space, 4,500m2 of elevated carpark over six storeys and features 700m2 of terrace and balcony at level 2. The brief also included a high level of finishes accentuating the architectural design presence, and adopting an efficient work methodology.
The building is a high quality, state-of-the-art construction that maintains the functionality and constructability of a mixed use development. Achieving a 4.5 star NABERS (National Australian Built Environment Rating System), the building is designed to meet the Property Council's stringent A-grade office attributes. The building is currently leased by the State Government of Western Australia for a period of 15 years. This is the first significant office building to take shape in this important transitorientated development precinct.
Working closely with stakeholders (client, tenant and design team) through all key stages of the project (design, concept and construction), Georgiou added value to the design by providing buildability advice to achieve the most cost and time-effective design solution. Georgiou engaged with key traders early on to engineer the best structure, façade and finishes for the building – a key benefit to the Client. All precast panels were manufactured internally at the Georgiou Precast Facility in Malaga, with this in-house capability providing key time and cost savings to the project. The project team also initiated a number of safety in design changes to ensure the safety of personnel working on the project such as pouring the precast concrete solution at ground level to reduce working at heights. These solutions also resulted in time and cost savings for the Client.
|CLIENT:||GEORGIOU CAPITAL/FJM PROPERTY AND MAINPART HOLDINGS|
|DURATION:||AUG 2013 - NOV 2014|
The Knutsford development comprised of 80 dwellings, both single residential and townhouses, built over 1.6 hectares.

The high quality residential development featured contemporary Michael Patroni architecture and a variety of accommodation options from single residential dwellings and apartments of varying types and sizes.
Additionally, the project team carried out all split-level hard and soft landscaping, grasscrete driveways and parking areas, along with the installation of all external façade features including brick lattices, metal cladding and perforated aluminum screens.
Collaborating with the client and architects throughout the build, adjusting finishes and final design detailing guaranteed no rework at handover.
|CLIENT:||RIO TINTO IRON ORE|
|DURATION:||JAN 2011 - SEPT 2013|
Rio Tinto Iron Ore awarded Georgiou the contract to deliver the Cape Lambert Camp A Village Expansion works in January 2011, and then later the construction of the Camp B Village with in-situ kitchen.
Cape Lambert Camp A works included the installation and commissioning of: a further 500 standard rooms; laundries; gymnasium/sports facilities; toilets; executive accommodation; ice and refrigerated rooms; wet mess facilities; underground services for fire, potable water, sewerage, drainage, communications and power including associated treatment plants.
The successful completion of Camp A led to the award of a separate contract for Camp B, to design and construct a 1,200 person camp with similar scope, but with an in-situ built kitchen and dining hall that also served as a designated cyclone refuge to IL4 standards. Additionally, the project team delivered maintenance and recycling facilities, light vehicle washdown facility, and multi-purpose sports court, swimming pool and indoor cricket pitch.
Delivering the accommodation in a staged approach; with kitchen, wet mess and additional central facility buildings whilst the 800 person camp is fully operational (night shift personnel), created scheduling challenges for the team. To ensure minimal disruption and astute delivery of the required infrastructure, Georgiou’s teams worked with local contractors and produced a schedule that was able to meet client needs. The client received a camp on program that met and exceeded expectations, whilst demonstrating a focus on safety.
Georgiou worked with the client and caterer to ensure minimal disruption to the camp occupants while installing all rooms and facilities. The project team created time savings for the Client through manufacturing the precast footings offsite out of Georgiou’s Precast facility. Other benefits provided to the client included: the use of an in-situ kitchen cut 50% of the construction program had the Client chosen to construct a modular facility; phased handover to allow for early occupancy; and with both packages delivered concurrently, Georgiou was able to meet the expanding camps needs and demonstrate its ability to mitigate disruptions to camp occupants, whilst installing all accommodation and facilities within timeframes.

|DURATION:||JUL 2009 - JUL 2010, APR 2012 - AUG 2012|
In July 2009, Georgiou Capital successfully negotiated the acquisition of the Canon head office complex in Osborne Park and commenced design development to refurbish and convert the premises into the long-awaited Georgiou WA Office.
In April 2012, Georgiou acquired the warehouse to the rear of the property, converting the property into a quality office space and Case Study and Collaboration Centre (pictured). Works included re-roofing to comply with BCA requirements, upgrade of electrical infrastructure, installation of new windows, construction of solid/glazed internal partitions, complete office fitout and furniture package, and all mechanical and hydraulic works to suit the new conversion.
The works comprised the complete removal and replacement of all electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, lift, ceilings, toilets, floor coverings and office partitions. The office fitout, installation of workstations, joinery, furniture, state-of-the-art video and teleconferencing facilities and communications were integrated with the construction work to achieve time and cost savings.
Georgiou completed the refurbishment scope of works as part of a fast track construction methodology – completing the works in three months. Additionally, Georgiou worked closely with the designers to value manage the design and provide buildability advice to achieve the most cost-and time effective design solution.
All works were carried out in a live working environment with minimal disruption to existing adjoining operations.
