Timing fit-outs for businesses

The new-look Stephen's Jewellers at Shepparton Marketplace.

The adage “Time is money” rings true for any business undergoing a revamp, or preparing to open its doors for the first time.

No business can afford to close shop for too long – or disrupt its workflow if it needs to remain operational. And when it re-opens, or returns from temporary to permanent work areas, a quality fit-out will enhance productivity and your customers’ impression of your brand.

Having specialised in shop and commercial fit-outs for more than 20 years, the KitchenWise team understands that no two jobs are the same.

The scale of work varies from full cabinetry fit-outs to custom cabinetry in existing work spaces. Other projects require cabinetry to enhance functionality and flair to industry-specific fit-outs provided by specialist suppliers.

Here are some of our recent projects where we got to show the versatility of our work.

Business brief:

While each of our clients ran very different businesses, they shared two common elements on their fit-out brief.

1.      Specific timeframes from the beginning of fit-out to open-for-business.

2.       A need for us to adapt our manufacturing and product to their industry-specific externally-supplied or existing products.

Stephens Jewellers, Shepparton Marketplace

The timber-look melamine bulkhead and black portal made by KitchenWise frames the signage from a specialist lightbox supplier.

Project: Stephen’s Jewellers asked KitchenWise to manufacture and install the external façade of its new-look Marketplace store, which features a striking melamine bulkhead, framed by a black portal on both sides of the corner shopfront. 

We also assembled and installed the industry-specialist cabinetry, which was manufactured interstate and imported for specific jewellery brands. 

Result: A show-stopping shopfront which showcases a store with wow-factor.

KitchenWise assembled cabinetry from industry-specific suppliers in the revamped Stephen's Jewellers store.

The Main Course Butchery, Riverside Plaza Shepparton

The Main Course Butchery's refrigeration unit features custom-built feature panelling, which is protected by the unit's trolley rail.

Project:

While we obviously don’t supply refrigeration units, we can individualise their look!

New Riverside Plaza business, The Main Course Butchery, asked us to dress-up its specialist-supplied refrigeration unit, starting the process from architectural plans.

From this design, we manufactured the silver kick-rail (Formica brushed aluminium laminate) to exact sizing, ready for concrete to be poured into the kick-rail cavity. We also co-ordinated the stone servery tops and manufactured panelling to be fitted under the unit’s silver trolley rail.

Once the stainless-steel engineers and glazier completed the installation of the refrigeration unit, we arrived on-site to cover the front of the unit with the attractive façade pre-organised with our client.

The attractive panelling and silver kick-rail adds flair to the refrigeration unit and pairs with the work area's colour scheme.
The panelling, which features mosaic tiles on the curved face and beneath the bain-marie, is framed with Laminex black melamine, natural finish and the inside panelling is predominantly Laminex White Valencia, diamond-gloss finish.  Tilers worked their magic within the cavities we built for the mosaic tile feature in the panels.
Panelling on the refrigeration unit and stone benchtop frame the sleek and modern work space.

KitchenWise also manufactured and installed the cabinet with a large cupboard space underneath the bain-marie and the adjoining hinged door for staff access.

Result:   A streamlined, modern façade which melds seamlessly with the serving and work-space behind the counter.

Revolver Burger Company, Shepparton Marketplace

KitchenWise helped the Revolver Burger Company transform the space from a previous business into its own identity and functional needs, including a new work zone behind the custom-built T-bar (above, right) on the existing bench.

Project:

Revolver Burger Company needed a retro-fit of the existing food preparation and serving areas from a previous takeaway food business in the Marketplace’s food court. And like all business fit-outs, time was of the essence.

We manufactured and installed a contrasting T-bar to the existing counter, creating a work area for staff to make milkshakes. We also co-ordinated the stainless steel which lines the work area behind the T-bar.

Our client’s brief was to add aesthetic appeal to the fridge area, so we enclosed it with sleek, black panelling and added a matching shelf from the unit into the milkshake zone.

New cabinetry behind the cash registrars has provided a new work zone for Revolver Burger Company at Shepparton Marketplace.

The general storage and food preparation area on the opposite side of the fridge was custom-built with a cabinet for the bain-marie and shelving for takeaway packaging in the work zone.  The new cabinetry has a stainless steel bench and stone counter top, of which we co-ordinated.

The result: An attractive, functional work zone that gives the new business in this space a unique identity.

Meeting the challenge

There is good reason why expert tradespeople are needed for commercial and shop fit-outs.

A custom-designed wardrobe has more benefits than meets the eye.

Not only does it look great, the well-planned use of space saves you time – and stress – in accessing what you need in a hurry.

Often, lack of organised storage space in other areas of the home – or even garage – results in non-bedroom paraphernalia cluttering floor and precious shelf space in the bedroom wardrobe. 

Hidden away from visitors, the bedroom wardrobe may inadvertently become home to miscellaneous household items: things like rolls of wrapping paper,  piles of documents, box games and disused toys, sentimental items, photo albums, sporting equipment, musical instruments, luggage and all sorts of  flotsam and jetsam of people’s lives. Sound familiar?

That’s not to say non-clothing items shouldn’t be kept in your wardrobe, but there are solutions to creating a more efficient and attractive storage area.

We help renovators and builders plan the area for their clothing and day-to-day items so they can keep things tidy and easily accessible.

So, how do we help transform the space?

An eight-star energy display home built to raise money for Goulburn Valley Health’s oncology unit has received positive feedback from visitors.

The GV Health Foundation Charity Home, built by Sessions Builders and a host of other local trades and suppliers on Sanctuary Dve, Kialla, opened to the public in early February.

As the only eight-star energy home in the Goulburn Valley, its design and future sale for charity, has created a lot of excitement in the community.

Sessions Builders charity home project manager Bethanie Hemeter said local trades and suppliers gave as much as they could to bring the charity project to fruition.

“Any generosity was welcomed, so we could keep the cost down to donate as much as possible,” Bethanie said.

“Businesses donated services, materials, hard goods, soft goods and their time to build this home and proceeds from the sale of the house will go to the GV Health oncology unit.

“The generosity from trades and suppliers has been fantastic and the response from people visiting the home has been amazing.”

The charity house, also known as the Verde display home, will be sold within the next year. In the meantime, display home visitors are being wowed by the home’s many features.

If your kitchen wish list includes “lots of drawers”, you are not alone.

Most of our clients tell us they want as many drawers as possible in their new or re-modelled kitchen.

A kitchen brimming with drawers is on-trend for good reason.

Drawers provide 30 per cent more storage than cupboards and make it easier to find and access items.

This means a more organised kitchen – and less twisting and bending to access hard-to-reach items.

Drawers require more hardware than cupboards, so drawers are more expensive. Therefore, your budget and kitchen shape will ultimately determine your quantity of drawers.
