24 Jul Compass: An SOFC Office Showcase
Working among office refurbishments here in Sydney can occasionally make us a trifle detail-oriented. At SOFC Fitout and Refurbishment, we love the nitty-gritty of commercial office fitout design for our Sydney clients, but it nevertheless is important to occasionally stand back and enjoy the finished product. And recently, we were given the opportunity to do so.
Compass Offices provides much of the Asia-Pacific with functional and stylish workplaces, open to any client in need of floor space. They are known for their choice of great location and easy, no-stress functionality, and when they came to us last year for their new project, we were only too happy to help them out.
Cut the Cake
In early June, we put the finishing touches on Compass’s striking new workplace off Kent Street, where a wealth of desks and spotless carpeted floors now overlook the blue waters of Darling Harbour. And on the 20th of June, we were joined by Compass Offices representatives, to get together on-site and experience the final product.
We were joined by representative Andrew Rothstadt, who along with our own Managing Director Keith Sheppard, offered a short speech of welcome to the 60-plus attendants. Along with canapes and beverages, two hours of mingling and networking between stakeholders followed.
Compass Offices are not strangers to projects such as these. They have been providing serviced offices in Australia’s major cities, and throughout the Asia-Pacific, for years, and to them, a quick fitout, within both their budget and their tight timeline, was the goal.

As per our modus operandi, SOFC sat down with Compass early in the game to provide our expertise on the best options, and to avoid any price shocks as the project progressed.
SOFC Fitout and Refurbishment was able to provide more than just a design and layout – we were able to use our experience within the Sydney fitout industry to provide value engineering advice, providing insights into the true value of various elements of the fitout, and whether they suited the budget and timeline we were facing.
Once the location they sought had been found, it was up to SOFC Fitout and Refurbishment to put together a commercial office fitout design to suit this particular Sydney space.
As part of our design process, we advised them on the material and the finishes that best suited it, including recommending design and finishes that lined up properly with their company motif and that of their clients.
To a firm like Compass, devotion to a timeline is absolutely vital. It means that their office space can be filled by clients on time, and create revenue, lining up with projections. Aware of this, we pulled out all the stops to ensure that the project was delivered.
It meant some late nights, but our experience in mitigating site issues around Sydney, along with our ability to quickly cope with design changes mid-stride, paid strong dividends. This site is the 4th site opening in Sydney as of the first of August, and we are proud as punch to have been chosen to be involved.
