Macquarie Group is a leading provider of banking, financial, advisory, investment and fund management services with international divisions in Australia, Korea, London, Dubai, and Singapore. In 2006 the group set out to facilitate a new approach towards the design and functionality of modern office environments. Based in Sydney, the Macquarie Group acquired a building on One Shelley Street. The project took approximately three years to complete as California-based Clive Wilkinson Architects collaborated with Sydney's Woods Bagot architecture branch to design the 330,000 square foot interior. Since its opening in 2009, One Shelley Street has won a variety of awards and praises for its creative design and take on environmental sustainability. One Shelley Street serves as a healthy dose of inspiration to Wellbuilt's pursuit of environmentally sound design and build solutions.
The Shangri-la hotel was a project Wellbuilt founder Mitch Kidd was involved in whilst working at Australian construction firm St Hilliers.The project was an extensive refurbishment of this well known and prominent Sydney landmark while the 36 floor hotel was occupied and operational. The scope of works involved the refurbishment and fitout the level 36 restaurant, the stripout and fitout of the Executive Lounge on level 30, the refurbishment of 424 guest rooms (levels 6 to 28), extensive modification reconfiguration and fitout of the front of house areas on level 1 and the ground floor. A detailed staging program was developed in close consultation with the Hotel as it was a requirement that only level 36 and level 30 be shutdown whilst all other areas of the Hotel remain operational. Five floors of guest rooms were under construction at any one time and the average cycle time per floor was 20 days.
