The hub of the Rabbitohs’ off field headquarters is up and running with staff from most departments moving into the new office space at Level 4, 265 Chalmers Street in Redfern today.
The office space, which overlooks the Australian Technology Park Performance Centre at Redfern Oval, is complete with 20 offices, an open plan workstation area, boardroom, meeting room, merchandise store and storeroom.
Craig Carroll from CMC Interiors, the Club sponsor that completed the fit out of the premises, said working on this project with the Rabbitohs has been an “absolute pleasure.”
“We started working on the office space in July of this year and we’re really happy with the results,” Craig said.
“It’s the first project we’ve done with Souths and we’ve been able to form a relationship with many other Club sponsors who were sub-contractors on this project. Hopefully we can work with them in the future as well. It’s been a pleasure working with them.”
Craig said they started five months ago with an open shell and built all of the office spaces, air conditioning systems, lighting, floor coverings and work stations; the total fit out.
“We’ve got two companies, one a developer and one is interiors. This is the bread and butter of our interiors business, CMC Interiors,” Craig said.
“I’ve been in business for 30 years and CMC has been going since 1992.”
Craig said this job was made all the more special because it was for his football club.
“I bleed red and green,” Craig said.
“I played Harold Matthews and SG Ball for Souths so to be involved with the Club in this fit out and as a sponsor has been fantastic.
“To see the red and green theme throughout the offices, from the floor coverings to the paint on the walls, to the mural outside the merchandise store, it really says that this new office space is South Sydney.”

“It’s very exciting for the Football Club to be moving into our new home, bringing the Rabbitohs family together again,” Rabbitohs CEO Shane Richardson said.
“It’s been a long haul but we’ve finally got there with the help of Trivest (who are the property developers of 265 Chalmers Street), and also our fit-out project manager Craig Carroll and his team at CMC Interiors.
“It’s wonderful to have us all together again in the one precinct, and we’re looking forward to being joined by a dynamic company on the fourth floor of the building.”
