"MPA won the competitive tender for Microsoft based off the team’s experience, allocated resource commitment and design innovation that was demonstrated during the tender period. MPA showed early on that this was not just talk, but action and they quickly followed through with their full commitment to Microsoft and the fitout with the attention required to make such a detailed, complex and hi-tech project come together so efficiently.
MPA were quick to offer solutions at every stage of the project and illustrated experience and knowledge in developing the complex design and construct elements of the project to Microsoft’s satisfaction. Collaboration and technical expertise across the entire project team was the only way Microsoft’s new headquarters would come close to meeting client expectations – thank you MPA for being a crucial part of the project team and contributing to the delivery of Microsoft’s vision, we are absolutely delighted with the outcome!"

Throughout the construction phase, MPA met every project milestone, and were well within budget. The quality of the workmanship has been to the highest standard. I have been in the industry for a long time and this is by far the best experience I have had with a major fitout construction. MPA are a very mature business and understand what is needed to deliver successful outcomes. I highly recommend MPA as a builder of choice."

"The overwhelmingly positive feedback from everyone at Kimberly-Clark is testament to the quality delivered by MPA on our fitout. As an international business, the challenge of communication with off-shore stakeholders was comfortably resolved with a combination of regular reporting, visual progress updates and virtual meetings. The MPA team took a professional approach, delivering to design, within budget and timeframes. The team were lovely to work with and always had a ‘can-do’ attitude which reaffirmed our decision to partner with MPA for such an important project for us. The construction phase, completed through a COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, met every project milestone while managing a safe construction work site with zero incidents. We had very high expectations from the outset and I commend MPA on the ability to deliver a great project to Kimberly-Clark’s high standards, under very challenging external circumstances."

"MPA’s flexibility and commitment to do what they say they do resulted in a great outcome for this project. It felt like April Group’s interests were always front of mind. This provided added comfort as MPA was successfully awarded further tenancy fitouts within our building whilst continuing to demonstrate the same care and professionalism. The upgrade to Habitat House set a new standard for buildings in Surry Hills and I’m glad we chose to partner with MPA to bring it to life. We received the right level of senior engagement and always felt MPA’s goal was to exceed our expectations whilst providing commercial solutions that aligned with our priorities. MPA’s approach to Habitat House has resulted in a long term relationship with MPA and them becoming the preferred partner for April Group."

"MPA acted as Head Contractor on Heinemann Australia’s construction of the largest airport duty-free store in the world, at Sydney International Airport. The project ran to a tight timeline in a very restricted and demanding airport environment, involving many night shifts to take advantage of the strict curfew hours imposed by the airport. All phases of the project opened on time, and the finished product looks amazing."

The completed project is considered by QBE to be the best project ever undertaken within their global network."
