Kidman Resources

Introducing Canopy’s tallest–ever fitout

Kidman Resources

A New York loft-style office fitout was the perfect choice for Kidman Resources, a Melbourne-based mining company located within BHP House – once the tallest steel-framed building of its time in Australia, and the tallest fitout Canopy has worked on to date!

Our inspiration for Kidman centred on complementing the new-look BHP building by visually tying the company back to one of Melbourne’s most iconic mining buildings.

Recently BHP House went through an extensive renovation to bring the building back to life. Now in immaculate condition with new lobbies, end-of-trip facilities and service upgrades, the Kidman team really needed a space to call their own. Enter Canopy Fitouts.

Framing Melbourne Skyline

We used black partitions to frame the Melbourne skyline, keeping as much natural light in the space to give the feeling of openness and airiness. The masculine steel frames of the building were incorporated into the meeting room, paired with the ceiling cladded timber. The aim here was to embrace the juxtaposition of cold steel and the warmth of timber. We also added an operable wall complete with a whiteboard to create separation between the areas to allow for versatility.

Important Features for a Fitout

Textures were also an important feature of this fitout. Being very classic in colour with white, black and timber tones, we were able to play around with different textures such as timber panelling, gloss touches and stone finishes

Design Phase

Our Consultant and Designer meet with you to discuss your business fitout needs and get a clear perspective on your vision. We will discuss your requirements and what challenges you are currently facing with your workspace; whether it’s a size issue, a functionality improvement or simply a workspace update, we will work with you to find the most suitable commercial fitout solution for your requirements and budget.


We prepare proposals based on the brief from the initial meeting where we go through and plan the look and feel of the proposed business fitout project. This is where we get feedback from you so we can proceed to the next step. We offer cost effective solutions for an affordable fitout, so your budget is always top of mind.

Site Commencement

All costs are agreed upon during this stage and the outline of the project and timelines are discussed. We organise all relevant permits to be approved and issue you with a final Construction Set, Fixtures and Finishes Schedule and a Project Schedule.


We carefully source and recruit the right contractors for each fitout construction job. We work with our team of Designers and suppliers to ensure consistency across the look and feel of the project, and conduct weekly site visits with you so you can check in on the fitout and how it is coming together.

At completion, we conduct a handover to you after ensuring you’ve had a thorough walk through of the new space and make sure you are happy with your completed project. We continue to work with you to take care of any additional needs and ensure they are resolved in readiness for your relocation.
