Chesterton International is a full service real estate group with offices around the globe.

They manage the building at 500 Queen Street and decided to have a speculative fitout built on Level 8 in order to attract a high-calibre tenant. We completed a fitout for the building’s previous owners a few years ago, which quickly leased and led to our firm’s appointment to design and build fitouts for two additional incoming tenants.

Based on our experience in the building and the excellent feedback our previous fitouts in the building garnered, Chesterton felt confident in our ability to assist them in attracting a new tenant.

Our team left the main workspace of the office in a clean, open condition, ready to adapt to the brand of incoming tenants. We furnished two meeting rooms and the boardroom, the latter already benefitting from its corner location and spectacular river views. Supplemental air conditioning was installed in each of these rooms. The new kitchen and staffroom, also located on a corner with vistas of the city, now has flexible seating and non-slip rubber flooring.

The reception and waiting area reflect monochromatic urban office design with feature carpet tiles, pendant lighting and modern furniture. Throughout the design, colour is injected sparingly and subtly to allow an incoming tenant flexibility with their fitout, including the ability to communicate their unique corporate message.

Level 8 now presents professionally and cleanly. It allows prospective tenants to visualise their organisations working efficiently out of the space. The building occupies a prime CBD location and Chesterton is confident that tenants will now easily recognise the benefits of leasing the upgraded space.
