Heritage upgrades for a renowned school

Melbourne Girls Grammar - Principle's Office and Boardroom Upgrade

Melbourne Girls Grammar was a project where we completed heritage upgrades to the boardroom and principles office. The boardroom took 5 weeks, the principle's office took 4 weeks and the bathroom took 5 weeks to complete.

We completed this project in the middle of COVID-19 lockdown on 2020 which posed some challenges but nothing that we couldn't handle.

Heritage Consultancy

Prior to the project commencement we had been consulting with a heritage consultant who advised us on certain aspects of the building that we could or couldn’t alter. If we had to make any penetrations, we had to ensure we didn’t diminish the heritage look of the building and make sure they were concealed or hidden away from visibility of the street frontage. We wanted to preserve the heritage look and feel of the building and space as it also created character to the rooms we were fitting out.

1800s Wood Paneling

One of the challenges we faced was due to the site being a smaller space, there is original 1800’s wood paneling on the walls and timber flooring that had to be re-furbished and not damaged during the works which too about 2 and half weeks to complete on its own.

Retaining The Height

The boardroom had a new mech system installed with a tight ceiling space to work with. We tried to retain as much of the original height of the room as possible. The height of the ceilings were a great feature of this space that we wanted to keep as high as possible during the fitout process.

Arkee Creative Designers

Arkee Creative were the amazing designers of this project and we had a great time working along side them, constructing their design and bringing it to life.

We upgraded the lighting systems in both rooms, gave it a fresh coat of paint and ensured the original ceiling moldings in the principal’s room were retained.

Overall, both rooms were upgraded with a fresh 21st century look and functionality without compromising the 1800’s heritage features of the rooms.

It’s all about the process!

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.
