IAG Albany Office - Joinery



Don McKinnon Drive, Albany



Architect /
Ignite Architects

Even before Haydn & Rollett had finished
the base build for a new office/retail complex
on Albany’s Don McKinnon Drive, it was
approached by key tenant IAG to handle its
office fitout. A crew from Haydn & Rollett’s
Joinery division was subsequently deployed.
Working to exacting standards, they clad
internal walls in a handsome oak veneer
clip-on timber system, designed and built
joinery for the kitchenette and office spaces,
and installed wall units.

They also tackled some bespoke inbuilt
furniture, including a stylish booth-like
seating area in the lobby that is notable for
its wrap-around dark purple upholstery,
and a solid oak bench and planter box. The
bench proved particularly tricky because
of the multiple angles involved.

Probably the most difficult aspect of the
project involved the design, construction and
installation of an amphitheatre-like meeting
area at the bottom of the central stairs.
Comprising an upper and lower section and a
subframe of eight individual curved pieces, it
presented the team with a number of software
and CNC cutting challenges. Eventually, some
precise hand trimming was required to get the
perfect fit.

The result is of an exceptional standard – and
you could say the same thing about the rest of
the joinery at the IAG offices. For such a large
project, the fact that there are no flaws is
remarkable, and demonstrates the dedication,
craftsmanship and attention to detail of
Haydn & Rollett’s Joinery team.
