ConnectAbility outgrew their existing premises in Hamilton and required a larger tenancy to accommodate their expanding operations, servicing special needs people and their Carers.
The new premises are located at Warabrook, Newcastle

“NOI kept the build on track and on budget as much as possible despite our continuous requests for variations. Their ability to be flexible and work with the trades to meet our deadlines and changes was exemplary. They communicated with us on a daily basis and stayed on site so that we understood what processes were happening and any challenges that could occur.”
“We cannot speak highly enough of Newcastle Office Interiors skills and experience in the field and would recommend NOI for any project on this basis.”
