The Duxton Refurbishment

The Duxton Refurbishment

AET, in partnership with SHAPE Group, have recently completed the electrical component of a refurb that will no doubt improve the amenity of this fine pub.  This is Affinity Electrical 3rd pub in as many years and we have been blessed to be a part of some of the most successful pub refurbishments including Hopscotch and Young and Frisky.  The secret to what we always believe are great outcomes has been our teams ability to match expectations and budget.  The example at the Duxton, was AET matching light fittings to the look the pub wanted to achieve but for a budget that would look good in a Canberra Pub.  AET worked closely with all stakeholders, Shape Group, The Duxton, the Owners of the Duxton as well as other trades.

With a vivid and eye catching lighting design, that perfectly complements the finishes of the architectural fixtures, Affinity Electrical Technologies are ecstatic to have been a part of this project. AET is proud to have played such a big part in the electrical design of this project including:

  • Electrical infrastructure Upgrade – AET engaged local Electrical Engineers AEC to assist with upgrading the electrical power from 200amps per phase to 500amps
  • Lighting select lighting to match the outstanding colours
  • Security, data, POS, and communications back bones. 
  • Media, TV, Sound and TAB facilities
  • Mechanical supplies for the refrigeration as well as AC. 

The Duxton refurbishment was scheduled to be a fast process from the get go, and this was exacerbated by long delays correcting structural requirements once the existing building was stripped back. With the dedication of Dan Parker, Kieran Ferns and other AET staff completing some long hours on the tools, we managed to get it over the line on time and looking great. Overall, we have a very happy client and great feedback from a community super excited to have it re-opened.

We would also like to thank SHAPE Group and all the trades involved for making this project one of the best fitouts AET have worked on to date.

The Duxton is another shining light in our portfolio and we look forward to enjoying the atmosphere that this great venue has to offer.
