collaborative approach

Focus delivers two perfect floors for Ausenco and their subtenant.



Ausenco is a global engineering firm specialising in the resource and energy sectors. At their head office in Montague St, South Brisbane, they subleased two large floors to another tenant. Focus teamed up with Interior Design firm, Smith Madden, to deliver the fitout for both floors. The project had a total floor space of 4,500sqm and included the refurbishment of a large reception area, considerable meeting spaces plus an open plan area containing workstations and offices.

Importantly, the fitout had to comply with Ausenco’s image and standard specification to enable them to reclaim the floors at the end of the sub-lease.



Focus was responsible for construction management, services co-ordination and team assemblage. The immense size of the project meant they had to co-ordinate over 70 sub-contractors on site at any given time. Their experience in effectively managing logistics showed in their ability to align all aspects of this complicated project.

Focus and Smith Madden’s collaborative partnership delivered a fitout that not only met all Ausenco’s specifications, but also dealt proactively with any challenges along the way.



The sheer size of the Ausenco project, combined with the number of sub-contractors involved, posed real obstacles. The team from Focus Fitout Specialists adeptly overcame potential issues by keeping closely connected with everyone involved.

They monitored milestones, constantly communicated with the designer and Ausenco, and maintained the hands-on approach they’ve built their reputation on. They were able to keep everyone working well together towards the same end goal – to provide a quality, seamless fitout.

Proving how well this approach is received, Ausenco has since commissioned Focus for their ongoing maintenance work.
