Wunderman Thompson

The highly successful advertising firm Wunderman Thompson from New York, initiated the project to modernise their existing Melbourne office to keep up with future technology and HR requirements.

Capabuild brought FABCON onto the project due to our specialisation in architectural stairs and our structural steel expertise, which required truss strengthening works, a new plant platform, stair void strengthening, and multiple architectural balustrades.

The design presented some unique challenges with a request to have the stair wrap around the new elevator shaft, which required a great deal of collaboration with Capabuild and the consulting engineers due to the very limited operational space. However, FABCON successfully produced a seamless construction methodology and kept the project on schedule.
