Student Accommodation in the City

No more living on campus

June 11, 2019

Most colleges and universities have their own “little cities” built into them. Now in Brisbane there is student accommodation in the CBD designed for any university student who wants to live there. This creates so many new opportunities and the chance to meet other students from different universities with the city at your doorstep. OPEN4 was recently engaged by TSA Management to provide a turnkey solution to support their client, Student One, in the opening of a brand new 901 room student accommodation in the heart of the Brisbane CBD. Our mission was to make sure Student One opened ON QUALITY – ON BUDGET – ON TIME. OPEN4 was able to apply its “single source delivery methodology”. Simply it is where all suppliers of furniture, fittings and equipment (FF&E) deliver to OPEN4’s warehouse, OPEN4 then manages and stages the delivery and installation of all the products as the building floors become available. Single source management, single source delivery, single source installation, single source PEACE OF MIND. Some quick specifications of the project

  • 901 rooms, 184 common areas

  • Two towers – Elizabeth Street 23 storeys, Charlotte Street 25 storeys

  • 4,620 furniture items, 1441 whitegoods (Volume 2,300M3)

  • 3500 hours of labour to be completed in 3 months (15 onsite personnel)

  • Warehousing included asset management and quality assurance

  • Deliveries were conducted out of standard hours

A message from Student One - Where do I start on Open4! What superb FF&E Turnkey installation specialists to have on board to help us kit out our new residential accommodation building for Student One. We worked closely with OPEN4 for our staged handover new build for well over three months and they were a dream to work with. It was a tricky install with many tight deadlines, stop and start workflows and hard to access areas involved in the staged handover from the builders. This was a piece of cake for OPEN4 and they worked around the limitations and restrictions extremely well and with a great attitude. Nothing was too much to ask and everything was well managed every day. All staff were well presented and polite and on the ball. To Gary & Andrew and the OPEN4 team – I would like to pass on a sincere thank you from the entire Student One Team. The fit out and opening of our new building couldn’t have gone so smooth without you! If anyone is serious about looking after their FF&E and ensuring the install goes smooth – look no further than OPEN4. They are the FF&E Turnkey company you are looking for!
