D&C initiative produces economical and timely build solution for heritage listed building with complex façade replacement.

We are proud to have been awarded this project on a design & construction basis by offering an alternate tender proposal, providing the client with strong cost savings and significant reduction in build time.

Due to waterproofing issues, the heritage listed McDonnell and East Ltd building in Brisbane’s CBD required replacement of a glazed curtain wall system to the southern façade. Our solution maintained a waterproof and safe environment for the recently completed fit out and heritage listed items contained within the building. Evolve also overcame tight site constraints and access restrictions, minimising the impact on surrounding properties and stakeholders while sharing easement and loading dock areas that service some of Brisbane’s largest and most active buildings.

Michael and the team at Evolve Constructions have successfully completed an important project for Lasalle Investment Management. This project was sensitive with many stakeholders involved and was managed seamlessly and professionally by his team. The project was completed in accordance with the program and budget and the team was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in requesting further submissions from them for upcoming projects.

Evolve were excellent in their approach to negating a number of high risk components during the tender process and taking a proactive approach to value management and build ability to meet the Clients’ challenging requirements. Evolve were able to deliver the project within programme to the highest of standards.

mcd Australia were very happy with the way the project was undertaken and we have opened discussions, with Evolve, regarding another project within the building. mcd Australia would highly recommend Evolve to Clients for future projects.
