We are Office Stripout and Makegood Specialists, servicing the needs of Tenants and Landlords
If you are relocating, DY Constructions Australia Pty Ltd can retrofit your office to a ‘makegood’ standard in compliance with your lease agreement. Office stripouts and makegood services deal with the obligation of a tenant to remove all redundant fixtures, fittings, installations and alterations carried out to a commercial office space, that are not required by the new tenant, or are required to be removed in the lease agreement.
We have extensive experience successfully delivering ‘makegood’ and office stripout projects throughout Sydney for tenants, landlords and building owners. After the office stripout, there may be work required to bring the property back to a leasable status, such as repair and makegood services. DY Constructions Australia can complete all repair works, including removal of partitions, and repairs to ceilings, floors, walls and repainting, in preparation for the next tenant or landlord requirements.
This is a list of works that are often required in office stripout projects. This list will vary according to the End of lease obligations and makegood provisions of your lease, and also the conditions in the tenancy fit out guidelines that the landlord has provided for your building. The Makegood clause generally obliges the tenant to return the office to its original pre-lease condition, but will often include a list of specific repair and Makegood tasks that have to be performed by the tenant.
We will meet with you onsite to discuss the details of your obligations, and then provide you with a detailed proposal for the works, which will include returning your office to the original base building layout, and the repair, makegood and repainting of lobbies, bathrooms, kitchens and perimeter walls. We will then co ordinate all the Makegood works with your landlord, to ensure that the project is completed on time before your lease expires.
For Stripout and Makegood projects, before any works start on site, we will meet onsite with the Landlord and the Tenant to confirm all details of the scope of works, e.g., what gets removed and what is remaining, and to agree on all details. As part of a typical Stripout and Makegood project we provide the following services.
We carefully dismantle existing partitions to ensure no damage is made to existing ceilings or carpet. Plastic protection will be used where necessary to protect existing building fittings and fixtures. Provide dust proof screens and covers to protect existing finishes and the immediate environment from dust and debris.
Allow make good to existing ceilings where affected by the removal of partitions, including repairs to ceiling grid and replacement of damaged ceiling tiles. Reinstate ceiling grid and tiles to base building layout including:
Allow to make good to existing floor coverings where affected by removal of partitions, including carpet tiles, floor vinyl, timber flooring and ceramic tiles.
Makegood to existing perimeter walls where partitions have been removed. Plaster screw holes and leave ready for painting. Re-fix skirting and trim, where affected by removal of partitions.
Return all fire protection services including smoke detectors, sprinklers, fire hose reels, emergency and exit lighting to base building open plan layout. If required supply additional Emergency lighting, EWIS speakers, Exit signs, smoke detectors, and sprinklers. Supply fire protection certification on completion.
As per the Stripout Waste Guidelines by Better Buildings Partnership, we allow to recycle as much as possible of the materials left over, this starts on site with the separation of recycling materials from non recyclable rubbish, and then putting them into separate trucks. Materials that can be recycled from a Makegood project typically include aluminium, plasterboard, ceiling tiles, furniture, workstations, wood, glass, and steel.
Upon completion of the Makegood works, carry out commercial cleaning of all areas within the tenancy. Remove plastic floor protection and vacuum as necessary. Perform detailed commercial cleaning to clean the whole office area before handover, including cleaning of skirting, trims, glass, window sills, and surrounding frames to internal windows. Allow to buff clean all floor tiles removing all marks, and scuffs.
Clean blinds and leave in good working order, replacing defective components as required. Undertake a commercial clean of kitchens and toilets including all cupboards, worktops, sink, equipment, and splashbacks. Remove all debris, dust, marks and stains, to leave in a clean and tidy condition, ready for the new tenant to move into.
