Spitfire Control Project Management

About us

Straightforward, specialised,
risk averse, and responsive.

Spitfire Control is a team of highly experienced project managers with a depth of experience in many facets of the workplace and commercial building sector.

Spitfire Control have offices in Sydney and Melbourne, plus alliance partners in Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, and Auckland.

The team from Spitfire Control take pride in representing our clients through every step of a project. We make it our job to understand your goals and pressure points. We look ahead, so you don’t have to.


Solution focussed

We don’t do problems, we do solutions. We will not come to you every five minutes telling you what today’s problem is. We will keep you informed, of course, but you only need to know problems if they are serious, or unable to be resolved by us.


The design and build of the fitout itself is not the whole project. There are many streams to a great outcome including AV and IT as an example. Our role is to see the bigger picture and ensure that all elements of the project are coordinated.


We take a leadership role, set high standards, and lead by example. We are concerned to understand our client’s objectives and work hard to see them achieved. The person running the job is the person doing the job. Our experience allows us to anticipate issues, and to take action to optimise the outcome.
