Project Summary:Corporate Interior Projects were nominated for this prestige project by an award winning New Zealand Architect, Custance NZ due to time constraints on the project as well as intricate design. Corporate Interior Project were flown to NZ to inspect Fisher and Paykel’s head office in Aukland to get a feel for what was required in the Australian head office in Macquarie Park, Sydney.

We were asked to expedite the program to be finished in 9 weeks, which left us 7 weeks to complete the works. CIP in conjunction with their sub-contractors pulled out all the stops to ensure this would happen. This project was nominated for an award in the NZ.
