Brisbane & Perth, Australia
HBO+EMTB provided workplace strategy and interior design services for two new Monadelphous head offices in Queensland and Western Australia. In the initial stages of the engagement, HBO+EMTB undertook a long term accommodation strategy and accommodation standards for new office accommodation in Perth and Brisbane. These standards were then utilised in the design of the fitouts of new office spaces in both locations.
The Perth office involved the co-location of business units from five different office locations throughout Perth into a single location. This integrated fitout of 9300sqm of office space within a new commercial development at Victoria Park encompassed design services, site survey of furniture and storage and documentation and contract administration.
In Brisbane, an integrated fitout of 5,115sqm enhances interaction between all business groups with flexibility for staff to move through the building and allow for future churn for transient staff e.g. those coming in and going out to mining projects in Queensland.
Monadelphous sought a new workplace that aligned with the core values of the organisation and that would be responsive to what the business does. The fitout design achieves this by facilitating greater interaction between all Monadelphous business groups with flexibility for staff to move through the building and allowing for fluctuations between department groups.
Graphic elements incorporated within the design communicate to staff the on-site machinery and what their business is about. The layout maximises views and natural light while providing a functional, effective and invigorating working environment for Monadelphous employees.
