AEMO is responsible for monitoring, forecasting and reporting on the energy market in order to ensure ‘Energy Efficiency for All Australians’. During the briefing stage a series of entire-staff presentations and town-halls were held with a true focus on gauging response and requirements whilst being mindful of delivering a project that met with the financial and functional expectations of the executive brief. The client required a notable increase in quantity and accessibility to meeting spaces and had extensive acoustic, security and AV requirements, these functional elements were to be balanced out by the values of being an ‘Accountable, Stakeholder-Focused’ and united team.
In order to promote a healthy work environment AEMO and Amicus were eager to encourage movement by incorporating electric sit-stand working throughout their office space. Through collaboration of designer, client and manufacturer a modified workstation system was developed to deliver working options which provided ‘owned’ and ‘shared’ surfaces supported by plug-in options to the perimeter & across both levels.
The Perth AEMO Workspace and Control Room has answered the aspirational and functional goals of the project team and broader staff body - James Kemp - CEO & Co-Founder, Amicus.
Staff merged and mobilised at their new headquarters at the end of August 2017. Through a series of internal updates, tours and presentations the move was approached with excitement.
