Challenges

Extended and detailed preliminary design stages were required for the successful delivery of this project, with the AJK design teams working with the client to deliver fit-for-purpose custom in-room joinery solutions for the end-users.

Together, we met timelines on a compressed construction program to ensure the end-client could mobilise operations for a Semester 1 intake.

Results

The AJK Outfitters’ team collaborated with our client at each of the design stages, to ensure on-time delivery of a full suite of in-room furniture, custom joinery, including bedheads. All fittings were installed to specifications and ready for operations in time for the beginning of Semester 1.

Project Features

Working closely with the client development manager and internal design consultants, AJK manufactured three styles of custom in-room bedheads. The brief was to afford users more in-room functionality and to provide integrated storage within the joinery to complement the student living requirements.

Our designers used feature pieces to ensure each area included items that were boldly creative, as well as representative of The Switch Living identity.
