Sydney Airport
International Terminal / T1
August 2008
Client:Australian Quarantine Inspection Services - AQIS
Project Management:Vegagroup
Brief:Convert existing space to IT facility / Server room
Info:The Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) is part of the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF). AQIS manages quarantine controls of Australian borders and provides import and export inspection and certification to help protect Australia's animal, plant and human health status. Our project scope was simple; we are to convert the existing area into a new space serving the IT department's growing needs. Works involved erecting new fire rated walls, door frames installation and painting & re-locating of existing air-conditioning. Given the high level of security on the Airside of the Terminal, standard Airside road rules applied to all our movements within the project's vicinity. To operate within these areas, an Authority for Use Airside (AUA) is issued by SACL that permits the operation of a motorised vehicle on the Airside areas of Sydney Airport. We were always escorted by security personnel when accessing the site. Their role is to ensure everyone's safety; given we had to drive along the runway, sometimes even waiting for taxiing aeroplanes to pass or them giving way to us.

Hungry Jack's
Century / 640 George Street Sydney
August 2008
Client:Competitive Foods Australia Pty Ltd
Project Management:Clifton Development Consultants
Brief:Refurbishment of ground floor and basement dining areas, kitchen and back of house
Info:Hungry Jack's Century is a unique refurbishment with an assortment of specific details, a project that required an above average finish for an overall design that leaves the restaurant's patrons totally relaxed by their surroundings.
Hungry Jack's Century was the first Hungry Jack's restaurant in New South Wales, opening for business on October 1982.
Being Hungry Jack's most prominent restaurant and the flagship of the armada, this refurbishment was closely watched by the discerning eyes of the high brass at head office. The restaurant captures Sydney's vibrant life. Even when the sun goes down or at the wee hours of the morning, Sydneysiders storm into this conveniently located and trendy restaurant, queuing for that famous Hungry Jack's Whopper.
If you remember the old store design, you will be happily surprised with the striking changes in look and ultimately the customer experience. The refurbishment took on a dramatic change from the previous design. Everything is new, the kitchen & dining areas on both levels; the new surround, new furniture, new decor, and the fresh graphics & murals, all immersed with designer pink & blue led lighting.
The project was full of different tasks, and it commenced on day one with the mobilisation of trades and site set-up. Safety signage was erected and notification posters informing the customers of the planned works and store closure times were affixed onto surrounding exterior windows. Hungry Jack's staff took care of the stock removal while Vegagroup personnel and tradesmen commenced the power & gas shut down, labelling of equipment, decommissioning & disconnection of equipment, wrapping of equipment, removal of Point-of-Sale machines, decommissioning of security and sound gear, removal of stainless steel items & servery counters, demolition of walls & tiles in dining areas & kitchen and the demolition of the unisex toilets. The complete overhaul took up to seven weeks; at the beginning of the project where most of the heavy works took place, the store closed for eight days. During this full closure, major works took place, commencing in the freezer & cool room. Simultaneously, the installation of new exhaust ducts registers, roughing in of electrical and data installations, roughing in of plumbing, installation of stainless steel guards and stainless steel wall sheeting, tiling of walls, make-good of ceiling, removal of the existing menu boards and ceiling preparation for the new rotating menu boards and floor epoxy grouting. Following the fourth day, equipment installation began, as well as the installation of the front counter and fire safety. This was followed by the installation of all electrical and data cabling. On the eighth day, all newly installed equipment was commissioned for the restaurant to resume operations while work continued in other areas of the restaurant, such as the first floor dining area, basement's dining room and back of house.
The overall trade's involvement was extensive, Metalwork & Stainless Steel, Structural steel, Brickwork, Carpentry & Joinery, Gyprocking & Plastering, Electrical, Mechanical, Hydraulic Services, Tiling, Painting, Kitchen Equipment, Condiments Units, Signage, Fire Protection Services, Decor & Furniture, Refrigeration. Successfully completed in record time, the final result is a testimony of the successful relationship between Vegagroup and the dedicated suppliers we work with.

Other interior works covered electrical & light fittings, bulkhead & ceilings, general painting, doors and core drilling for various tables and seatings.

Sydney Airport
Terminal 1 / Level 2, Charles ULM Building
June 2008
Client:Sydney Airport
Project Management:Vegagroup
Brief:Office refurbishment and extension of existing department
Info:In an effort to accommodate more staff, this refurbishment ran on a demanding schedule. A busy office with no time for shutdowns, which meant our work was strictly afterhours, to be performed only between Friday afternoon and Monday morning.
To make the most of the allowed time and accomplishing the set targets, 24 hours shifts were in place, spanned over multiple weekends. At every completed portion of the project, the place needed to be re-instated to safe working conditions for office staff to resume their work duties between Monday & Friday. During the week, we inspect our achievements, discuss with our client the works progress and how it is meeting with their requirements, from quality control for minimum defects to schedules and work rotations, confirming the activities ahead.
As is common with office refurbishments, the works required various trades and disciplines; carpentry, glass portioning & glazing, gyprocking, painting, fire services, power, phone & data cabling, as well as installation of workstation items & relocation of existing and new furniture.
Sydney Airport requires nothing less than solid attention to detail with maximum efficiencies, especially when working in these conditions. Work safety and security are also overriding priorities and they are approached with vigilance. Vegagroup has performed various successful refurbishments within the ULM building and our experience in this area imparts a level of confidence, hence re-enforcing our capabilities to deliver and perform beyond the call of duty.
