Positioned centrally in the James Street Fortitude Valley retail precinct, this refurbishment project provided a significant aesthetic enhancement to the precinct bringing world-class retailers Pottery Barn and West Elm to the precinct.

Our detailed scope across the two separate buildings included the removal of existing awning and façade and replaced with a new awning structure along the James St frontage, as well as large scale internal & external demolition and removal of pre-cast panels to the Wandoo St building, new structural steel and roof sheeting, new foundations, new specialised façade brickwork, elevated planters, shop fronts, signage, services upgrades and associated works.

The refreshed building façade has uplifted the precinct and it’s street appeal, bringing a high-end feel to the local area.

The building attracts both retailers and onlookers to discover and explore this exclusive tenancy within the James Street Precinct.

Specialised trades were selected to ensure a high quality finish with a strong focus on achieving the architect’s high expectations on the build.

The Tomkins team ensured close consultation with the architect and client to maintain this throughout the project.

The Tomkins project team strictly managed the works and coordinated activity sequences which ensured adjacent retailers remained operational and unaffected by the works.
