THE CAPITAL, QLD

Project Description

For start-ups, it’s not about the ideas, it’s about making ideas happen. 

With The Capital, a $5 million innovation hub, start-ups now have a space where they can bring their bold concepts to life.  

The start-up hub offers over 200 start-up operators with premium yet affordable co-working spaces and facilities. With expandable, multi-purpose facilities and a superbly convenient location in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD, The Capital provides its start-up tenants important connectivity with corporate and government customers on both a local and national scale. In order for this to happen, a trustworthy seamless power, lighting, security and communications system was undeniably important. 

FDC Construction & Fitout, project managers of the The Capital’s fit out works, entrusted Programmed to create – and deliver – this.

 

Project Solution

After equipping ourselves with a clear understanding of what The Capital aimed to achieve, we drew upon our extensive experience to provide a Design and Construct solution for the hub prior to construction. This proved to be of great assistance to the customer, especially since this project would involve multiple trades working to deliver within short deadlines.

During construction, a high degree of flexibility and close communication was essential. This ensured we not only met the continuously evolving needs of the customer during construction but were also able to customise a fit for purpose system that seamlessly integrated the entire complex’s lighting, communications and CCTV.

This took the form of an AAT Cat6A Communication solution and Dynalite Lighting Automation System which was installed across all three floors of the hub, together with architectural lighting able to create the right ambience. Meanwhile, incorporated advanced safety features that are also fully compliant make it possible for the network to function efficiently and safely for years to come. 

 

Project Outcome

Programmed’s on budget and end-to-end delivery solution has paved the way for a more connected and accessible start-up community in Brisbane. Our ability to deliver a premium outcome, despite constantly evolving design requirement and tight timeframes, has impressed FDC Construction & Fitout, who have since engaged us for additional projects.
