The Essendon Fields fitout for WorkSafe Victoria saw the conversion of a lofty aircraft hanger into A-grade office accommodation and training facilities. The brief had to cater for open plan workspace for WorkSafe inspectors plus a collaborative training facility.

The existing building was a cold shell with concrete floors and a 7 metre saw tooth roof. Extensive base building works were required to convert the space into comfortable office accommodation which was undertaken in conjunction with the fitout. The fitout design was innovative and edgy, making great use of the exposed roof structure and opportunities to create additional natural light with highlight windows.

The project was delivered within a fast track construction program.
