NTT, global technology services company, has a longstanding and trusted relationship with Amicus, having recently completed several NTT Group subsidiary company projects throughout Australia. Following the successful delivery of their Darling Park – Sydney (1), Darling Park – Sydney (2) and Elizabeth St – Melbourne projects, NTT decided to engage Amicus again for their brand new 4 level workspace in Melbourne, in the newly renovated 35 Collins St. The ambition was to bring different teams from subsidiary companies, Dimension Data, NTT Communications, Viiew and Oakton under one roof and achieve a fresh fitout which provides a variety of work settings for focus work, meetings, collaboration and relaxation.
With an end of lease on the horizon at their existing space and managing expectations of staff moving to a flexible working environment, Amicus provided a strategy solution to determine the staff needs in a new environment and assisted with change management activities. As a result, the design looks clean-cut and professional with workstations placed around the perimeter of the floor with meeting rooms generally on the core maximising natural light. Collaboration areas, tea points and utilities are situated in the same location across floors to provide continuity. An intertenancy staircase connecting all floors has been installed to enable maximum staff collaboration and interaction. The overall aesthetic is refined and modern with colour injected in soft furnishings.
We are proud to show off the story of our new building in collaboration with Amicus, with whom we partner to enable our clients realise their workplace culture ambitions through smart spaces - Caroline Sealy - Practice Manager - Digital Workplace, NTT.
Staff feedback has been very positive overall, particularly for the interconnecting staircase, which is an efficient connection tool and a great structural feature of the fitout. The team is experiencing a greater level of cohesion resulting in a great problem solved for the client through this project.
