Bourke Street, MELBOURNE

Challenge

This NAB branch is located at the corner of Bourke Street and William Street within the CBD. As part of the town planning application a brand new branch, NAB required the branch to be opened in less than six months plus advertising signage on hoarding during fitout period. The CS team were appointed to obtain town planning approval for the buildings and works, the temporary signage and approval to erect the hoarding on the footpath so the construction team could commence an expedited fitout.  

Solution

In consultation with Council, the CS team lodged a congruent town planning approval application and a footpath occupation permit for the hoarding with council. This allowed for an expedited dual approval of all elements of the project but was dependant on comprehensive details to be provided to Council at lodgement stage to ensure both applications proceeded seamlessly through council. With no further information requested by council in assessing either application, both were approved within weeks of lodgement and the fitout was completed and the branch opened to customers ahead of schedule.
