Project Overview

Client: Thio Eyecare

Location: Burnside, Melbourne, VIC

Area: 124m2

Case Study

Thio Eyecare is a generous size optometry practice located in the Melbourne Northern suburb of Burnside (between Deer Park and Caroline Springs) in local shopping complex, Burnside Hub. Similar to that of a strip shop, Thio Eyecare is positioned on the exterior of the shopping precinct. Prime real estate for business owners with the visual exposure to shoppers, and advantageous for shopfitters and building contractors with the ease of accessibility for deliveries and the like.

Handover of the project to our team of commercial renovation specialists consisted of a bare 124sq metre tenancy, with only the tenancy walls and roof above existing. A blank tenancy is optimal for shopfitting companies as then we know what we’re up against and there are no nasty surprises delaying the fit out. Finding hidden and unforeseen problems in tenancies, such as plumbing or electrical work in walls, will often demand additional time to decommission and may result in a costly variation. An undesirable outcome for all involved.

The four week optometry build comprised of one large consulting/examination room, an oculus rift VR room along with a significant retail space. All joinery was manufactured in house and installed by our experienced shopfitters, consisting of a beautiful timber look laminate counter complemented with a 32mm thick white laminate bench top, wall joinery frame displays and lockable frame display on the blue feature wall, highlighting the store’s designer frames. 

LPA Lighting provided a stylish and efficient lighting solution for the fit out, with black suspended track lighting in the retail space and LED strip lighting routed and concealed within the frame display joinery for a seamless finish.
