and then we build them for you.
Most people want a professional and modern commercial interior. The problem is many have been let down before and don't have the time or skills to do it themselves. At Zhoosh we design commercial interiors and then we build them for you, resulting in a modern interior saving you time, stress and money.
First, we hold an initial project discovery meeting to discuss your project brief, design direction and to ensure you get the best return on your project investment.
In order to create a commercial interior workspace that your staff and customers will love and thrive in, we need to gain a deep understanding of your business goals, behaviour, and values. Workplace strategy is essential and the knowledge we gain from this discovery phase underlies the project design.
Our design team harness the findings and utilise this to create bespoke designs that maximise space, reflect your company brand and values and integrates your organisational behaviours.
DISCOVERY PHASE PROCESS:
Stage 1 – We interview key stakeholders to develop the high-level project brief, gain insight into the project deliverables and objectives.
Stage 2 – When required, we create focus groups and surveys with individual departments to better understand departmental behaviours and business processes.
Stage 3 – Leveraging our gathered intelligence we finalise the project brief, provide initial look and mood profiles and present you with the project design direction.
We design and cost your project. Providing you with initial concept designs and a fully costed transparent project budget.
We understand the frustration caused when projects go over budget. Industry insight proves this occurs mostly due to poor design and over specified finishes where the design professional is detached from the stakeholder’s reality. In many cases this causes unnecessary anxiety for the client, Not only does the interior fit out have higher than expected project build costs, the project is protracted with costly redesigns and revisions causing delays and additional hidden expenses often not budgeted for such as additional rents, preliminary & general costs, all of which are passed on to you the client.
At Zhoosh with our in-house design team, we take a different approach to the design of commercial interiors. We approach commercial interior and office design with a practical hands-on build experience and cost-effective approach, engaging our project managers, site managers who have feet on the floor experience combined with flair and creativity resulting in a best of both worlds situation for our clients creating cost-effective, functional, and inspiring workplace interiors.
Along with the integration of project intelligence obtained in the project discovery phase with tailored commercial interior design, you create quality functional and inspiring spaces that look and feel good helping businesses attract and retain higher quality talent. Businesses that invest in their workplaces thrive.

A well designed and planned project while important is only the beginning, the real test is in delivering a well-run commercial interior fit-out. Once the design is confirmed and all required consents and approvals have been granted, with project management excellence we manage the full build process managing site health and safety, project stage planning, engaging and management of subcontractors, monitoring and quality control management, office furniture supply and installation, right through to the final clean, project commissioning and hand over.
Our project managers will work with you to develop a project plan that suits your business operations, deadlines, and goals. We understand business and the importance of minimising business disruption, we have had experience in delivering commercial fit out and refurbishment projects in occupied and trading sites overcoming the challenges and minimising risks.
Throughout the build process, you will be kept well informed, with photo and written reports sent weekly, regular site and project meetings along with our interactive client portal providing live updates on project progress, costs and variations meaning you are intelligent, and the entire process is transparent.
Sites are managed by competent and experienced site managers with hands-on build experience in the commercial fit out sector. The site managers are responsible for managing the fit out or refurbishment site taking care of health and safety, quality control, demolition, carpentry, electrical, through to finishing trades, furniture installation, final clean and hand over.
By engaging a design-build contractor, you get the benefit of a 3-pronged design approach — good design, cost-effective design, and a project that is created with practical construction in mind. This approach helps to achieve the same results of a design and building only contract, but with the benefit of added savings for the client.
We provide in-house design services with our qualified architects, ensuring that you receive a personalised and well-thought-out design for your commercial fit-out or refurbishment project. These are designed in the most cost-effective and efficient way possible. This allows you to maximise your project’s budget and receive more value for your investment.
An additional benefit of using a design-build contractor is that, in most cases, the concept design phase is free of charge. As a result, you can see the design for the project before you make a financial commitment versus making an upfront investment in architectural services.
