Case study: Renovation

In 2015 CMBM Facility Services completed a full renovation of the car dealership adjoining the Greenbank RSL, Hillcrest Queensland.

CMBM facility Services were chosen because of our previous experience with this particular type of building renovation, licencing and insurance capabilities, along with our competitive quoting.

Greenbank RSL were looking for a cost effective solution to renovate the car dealership as a change of tenants was occurring. They needed a modern fit-out that would match parts of an old building to the new and add value for money when renovating the asset. It also needed to meet the full report for the outgoing dealer to be in the same standard as the new one coming in.

What solutions did we provide?

Over a 6 week period CMBM Facility Services renovated the dealership. This included the following services:

  • Building
  • Electricity
  • Plumbing
  • Telecommunications
  • Lighting
  • Air Conditioning
  • Design and fit-out


This particular type of building presented a number of challenges:

  • Matching old fixtures that had broken, as the exact match was no longer available.
  • Only 1 senior maintenance manager at the facility, which required CMBM to be self-sufficient in dealing with trades and contractors.
  • There were some access issues as the goods lifts had restricted weight barring and fire stairs were restrictive.


What has been the result of the work we provided?

The incoming tenant and management at Greenbank RSL were extremely pleased with the results of the project.

“CMBM are problem solvers and great communicators, and they saved our business time. I knew what was going on at every step of the renovation. When there was an unforeseen issue they came to me with a solution every time, they are self-managed and upfront there was no imposition to my staff.

We have no hesitation in recommending CMBM for restorative work and will approach them for future works.”
