Filing The Gaps Cafe Fit-Out | Cups And Wells
Without proper project management, a business can end up paying more to fill the gaps that were not identified in the vital first stages. Cups and Wells had plans to fit out and furnish a local cafe, but a few key elements were missing. The project plans were incomplete. Council approvals and essential services had not been factored in and there were no allowances for completed sign off. These are not uncommon mistakes to make without proper project management. Anchor performed a full scope of the project and worked up contractor costings. From there, the project was able to be rolled-out professionally and managed transparently, helping Cups and Wells meet what had looked like an impossible opening date.
“Anthony and the team at Anchor Services were exceptional in assisting us with the construction and fit-out for our cafe. Anchor managed every aspect of the project professionally from beginning to end and all jobs were done in a timely manner. They exceeded our expectations and ensured that all council requirements were met and plans approved. Anthony came onsite throughout the project to monitor the progress and completion of the jobs.
Without the help of Anchor, we certainly wouldn’t have been able to meet our expected timeline as Anchor had the experience and expertise needed to execute the works in the correct order to meet the deadlines.
We are so thankful to have worked with Anthony and the Anchor team and will no doubt be using them again in our future projects! Once again, thank you Anchor!” The Cups and Wells Team
Restoring A Former Beauty Residential Renovation | Extension
Demolition v renovation. The owners of a magnificent 1920’s Queenslander were determined to ‘keep the bones’ – the original frame – even though it would require an extensive renovation.
With hand-driven steel nails having stood the test of time, why demolish such a beauty? So where possible, original VJ’s were kept and reused.
A massive transformation challenged Anchor’s project methodology. The property was lifted and spun around to meet the requirements of a complete renovation.
It was rewired and remodelled to leverage an all-important aspect, and the kitchen became the focal point of the home.
Now a place of great beauty, both owners and visitors alike are in awe of the craftsmanship and functionality the home provides.
Unwavering In An Emergency
“On behalf of JLL for the ANZ account I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to you and your team at Anchor Building Services, for your exceptional efforts during the recent cyclones we experienced in QLD and NT. Natural disasters can be a stressful and difficult time so it is imperative that we have contractors that are reliable, dependable and trustworthy. Your team were professional and unwavering in your support, and the on-site assistance that Jamie received in Yeppoon/Rockhampton from Reece and Ben was instrumental in having those ANZ branches re-open within days of the cyclone passing through.
It also enabled ANZ to provide washing machines, fridges and dryers for their staff to use in very trying circumstances… outstanding service, Tony. Thank you.”
Katrina Travers, State Portfolio Manager Jones Lang LaSalle (ANZ Australia)
Short Notice. Difficult Job. CBD Location
“Anchor has carried out works for Westpac and St George banks for over 10 years. Their service is of an extremely high standard. Anchor was asked to perform night works at one of the St George sites in Brisbane CBD at very short notice.
This was an extremely difficult job cutting and removing part of an awning and replacing it to allow St George Cnr. Queen and Edward Streets to reopen the next morning.
These works were handled in a professional and dedicated manner right down to organising the Council permits on short notice. Anchor’s commitment to works throughout Australia show a commitment to total client satisfaction and I would recommend Anchor Building Services for any projects in your establishment.”
David Helliwell, Facilities Management Cushman & Wakefield
Rising To The Occasion
“Anchor Building Services were an instrumental part of the collective efforts required during the January 2011 floods. Anchors team of in-house staff and range of quality contractors provided assistance to prepare and protect a range of sites from rising waters with sand bags, pumps,
emergency generators and labour to move equipment to higher ground.
Anchor was just as integral to the provision of services for the post flood works to get the sites affected back to normal operations as quickly as possible. This included cleaning and sanitisation works, building works, electrical works, painting and plastering.
On every occasion Anchor sourced what was needed and in extreme circumstances they always came through with the goods. Their efforts had a direct and positive effect on our owner, tenants and staff. Thanks again Tony and the Anchor team.”
