"RAW Commercial were an absolute pleasure to work with on our new fitout. From the very first meeting, RAW were fully committed to our business, and this commitment flowed from the Director of RAW right through to our Site Manager and the subcontractors on site. This meant that we received exactly what we wanted, within budget, on time, and any issues along the way were resolved quickly and professionally, with excellent communication at all times. I cannot recommend RAW highly enough to anyone requiring a new fitout or renovation of existing premises."
Naomi Chambers - Practice Manager, Lung Research Qld
"We engaged RAW Commercial Projects to fit out our office and mediation centre and they exceeded our expectations by delivering a beautiful and functional environment. Their excellent workmanship, clear communication, and ability to deliver to the agreed timeline and budget truly impressed us, and we couldn't be happier with the results."
Brent Stowers - Principal, Workhorse Advisory
"In the last few years, RAW Commercial Projects has undertaken several projects in our two commercial office buildings in Maroochydore. Most recently, they completed their biggest project for us yet, on time and on budget, of a “defit” and make good to “warm shell” of two of the three floors in our Carnaby St building following the exit of the space by a State Government department.
The two floors now look a million dollars, and we have almost sealed a deal with a national tenant for the entire top floor. As in all the projects undertaken for us by RAW to date, a great deal of problem-solving has taken place, for example, the need to separately meter services into the building to cater to the needs of larger tenants. Special thanks for spending many hours burning the midnight oil overcoming complex issues on this project go to Construction Manager Darren Jones. The building’s third (middle) floor is still occupied by a State Government Department 24/7, so careful planning for noisy construction works and other issues had to be undertaken. It is a tribute to the diplomacy and tact of Project Manager Chris Crombie that the project was completed without issue. In fact, the middle floor tenant manager thanked Chris for keeping their disruption to an absolute minimum.
Richard Wiseman and his RAW team are our preferred shopfitters, as evidenced in our fitout guide to tenants. I have no hesitation in recommending RAW to you."
"RAW Commercial Projects was referred to us by a mutual connection for the total refurbishment of a 950 sqm office. Working with Richard, Ryan, Darren, Dayne and the rest of the RAW team was an absolute delight. The pride that RAW have in their workmanship shone through from our initial meeting and continued right throughout the development, construction and handover stages. The team accommodated all of our requests, kept us informed with regular communications and site meetings, and followed through ahead of schedule and on budget. This is an achievement in itself, let alone in the current climate with supply shortages and inflation. We could not recommend RAW more highly and look forward to working with the team again on the refurbishment of one of our (heritage listed) offices. Thank you and the whole team again for a tremendously successful experience."
"RAW Commercial Projects was referred to us by Property Managers, BNG. We viewed some of their fitouts at 2 Gardner Close and selected the design elements we liked most for our new fitout. Working with Richard Wiseman and the RAW team was a great experience. Henna Viikari did an excellent job designing the fitout and incorporating our feedback into the layout. Jason Krisanski managed the project and kept us well informed throughout the construction process. Overall, we’re extremely happy with our new home and highly recommend RAW for their outstanding work. It’s a 10 from the Elements Advisory Group."
"As a landlord we love working with the great team of people at RAW Commercial Projects and feel at ease recommending them to our tenants. RAW have carried out numerous projects across Brisbane for us and throughout the whole process, from the initial design meeting to handover Richard Wiseman and the team make you feel at ease. Wonderful communication, helpful feedback and excellent industry knowledge are why we keep using and recommending them. Raw consistently deliver quality projects on time and within budget – we look forward to working with the team again soon!
Sandy Hunter - Leasing Manager, Bachrach Naumburger Group
"I’ve worked with RAW Commercial Projects over the past three years and have found their fitout projects to be consistently excellent. Richard Wiseman and the team’s overall service is a resounding 10 /10. They make my life extremely easy. Everything from the design through to the construction works well. It’s a seamless process and that’s a huge advantage for me. I’ve found the quality of their craftsmanship is always excellent. Communication is great too. I’m kept informed on the progress and know exactly what’s happening. Working with RAW is effortless! "
"Working on our new Health HQ fitout with Richard Wiseman and the RAW team was fantastic. They’re great communicators and always helpful with providing answers to my questions. We’re extremely happy with the outcome and found everything from design through to construction was completed to a high standard. The cost of the project was affordable for us and delivered within the timeframe we expected. We certainly enjoyed this experience, and thank everyone, especially Ryan and Jason for making it so easy for us."
Nicky McClelland - Owner and Practice Manager, Health HQ, Southport
"Thank you Richard and Chris. We are super delighted with the quality of your work and the way you work alongside us, going above and beyond what is normally expected. In current times, it’s so important to have great relationships with business partners committed to common goals. Looking forward to seeing your final product with our next new clinic in QLD."
"Congratulations to the RAW team for your excellent work!
We are very excited with the modern workplace transformation at the Eagle Farm facility that Raw Commercial has been working diligently to its successful completion since August 2020. Likewise, I believe Kyle and the team in Eagle Farm are pleased with the level of professionalism and dedication that you and your team have exhibited, despite some challenges throughout the duration of the project. On behalf of the team, I thank you and appreciate your team for their extreme support and professional service."
Bernard Khaw - Corporate Procurement & Facilities Manager, Australia & New Zealand, Emerson Automation Solutions
"Engaging RAW Commercial Projects to carry out the fitout at Maroochy Eye Specialists was one of the best decisions we made. They have a very professional approach, with great attention to detail for the small things that really made a difference once handover was complete and the clinic opened.
From the very beginning, Richard was very approachable, and happy to give some thoughts on two other possible sites before the lease was secured on the final site. Once plans for the new site were underway, the level of communication was fantastic, including from Linda during the design stage, from Darren and Chris especially during the construction, and of course from Richard throughout.
Despite the challenges of COVID, the finished product was delivered on time and on budget. The level of service did not finish at handover, and they have been checking many times that we are satisfied. We are thrilled with the final result, and many patients have commented on the layout and finish. We now have a great space in which to work, which is relaxing and comfortable for our patients. Thanks to all involved!"
David Posselt - Director, Ophthalmic Physician and Surgeon, Maroochy Eye Specialists
"I am very pleased that I engaged Richard and his team to perform our practice upgrade and extension. In the planning and quoting stages, RAW Commercial stood out clearly from the other commercial construction companies I approached. Their meticulous attention to the finer details of project investigation, practical and helpful design focus and overall enthusiasm for the project were appreciated. I felt confident from the start that there would be no hidden costs or nasty surprises. As a busy medical practice, it was important that the project be completed on time and that we were able to continue operations for most of the project without disruption. The RAW Project Manager delivered, employing polite, safe and capable sub-contractors, who operated efficiently and tidied up after each stage. The final result has been very well received with a finish that exceeded my original expectations. I will have no hesitation in employing RAW Commercial for future work and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone considering a fitout project."
Bruce Jones - Director, Brisbane Integrated Pain Care
"It is with much pleasure I provide this testimonial for Raw Commercial Projects, who have undertaken two considerable sized office fit outs for Carers Queensland. Richard and his whole team are so professional and easy to deal with, and he has a fantastic designer who really ‘gets it’ when it comes to contemporary finishes and features. From plan preparation through to handover, nothing was too much trouble for Richard and his staff. And whilst everyone has the hope and expectation that office fit outs will be delivered on time and on budget, (which Richard’s team did,) what you don’t always get is the incredible quality that RAW Commercial Projects deliver. The finishes of the floors, cabinetry, staff amenities, light fixtures, furniture, soft furnishings and fixtures all exceeded our expectations and will provide a fantastic space for our staff to work in, for many years to come. I have no hesitation at all in recommending RAW to you."
"The team at RAW Commercial Projects have a proactive and meticulous approach to the design and construct process that leaves the client protected from unwanted surprises. They achieve this with very thorough up-front project investigations and a genuine aim to understand stakeholders needs so the project is well aligned with the intent of the client. Construction is advanced such that any disruption to live environments is appropriately and safely managed. It is enjoyable to work with a contractor that spends the time to review all documentation available and find economic ways to bridge any gaps well before they become critical to programme. It has been a pleasure to work with RAW Commercial Projects and we look forward to working with them again in the future."
"It’s a delight to recommend RAW Commercial Projects for any and all office fitout work, without any reservation. We were a new company fitting out our very first office space, and it could have been incredibly daunting if RAW weren’t the all-in-one solution that they are. They made the entire process, from conception to construction, absolutely painless and hassle-free, and came in perfectly on-budget and on-time, despite significant time pressure. The fit-out looks amazing, and we won’t hesitate to use RAW for our next space. We don’t think our fitout would have been possible without RAW!"
"Richard, I just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our renovations in reception. Congratulations to you and the team on the finished product. It looks very professional and inviting. The journey for us was relatively stress-free, but I imagine that may not have been the case for you, as we had such a tight timeframe from demolition to finish date. It is amazing what you have achieved in only a week. The colours, design, and finish are exceptional. Please convey our appreciation to the team. I have already given your name to a couple of people who asked who did the renovation. I would be more than happy to recommend you to other clients looking for a superior finish to any planned renovations or new work."
