Rabobank Head Office

A staged methodology to minimise disruption and safely deliver high risk work 

Global food and agribusiness bank, Rabobank engaged SHAPE to transform 8,865 square metres of office space in Tower 3 Darling Park located in Sydney’s CBD. The four floor fitout was delivered through a staged methodology to minimise disruption and construction risk, employing additional dust and fire containment measures to construct the interconnecting staircase.

With SHAPE’s extensive construction experience and knowledge of build materials, an extensive value engineering process was undertaken to ensure the project was delivered on budget; encompassing a Scandinavian finish incorporating a neutral colour pallet with significant custom wooden joinery, feature walls, and furnishings.  


I would like to take this opportunity to thank SHAPE for all their support and commitment during the Rabobank project. It is not often you see such a high level of focus on a client’s project from all levels of an organisation and across all stages of the project and commercial process. From the outset SHAPE’s approach was one of collaboration and working in partnership with the Project Team. The combined experience of our joint teams coupled with an open and honest communication style ensured that any issues were addressed and resolved quickly without any impact to our program or business operations. All in all this resulted in not only the project coming in on time and on budget but enabled a high degree of finesse, attention to detail and quality. I am truly proud of what we achieved together.
