With a lease expiry approaching and a recent expansion, EFM Logistics went out to the market and found a new home. Amicus delivered their striking Melbourne office HQ in 2019. With the brief to create a cohesive design and to build on this relationship, our team was trusted to design and build their new office location in Queensland.
Amicus worked closely with the EFM team every step of the way to understand the needs of the space, budget and to ensure the new design would be future proof for continued growth.
EFM’s new space was a blank canvas to build their ideal fitout. An important design consideration was the look & feel, which was to be consistent with their existing Sydney and Melbourne offices. The office is sleek and sophisticated, a colour palate of deep greys and warm timber set against pops of navy and teal.
To allow for their recent growth and address some of the gaps of the previous space, Amicus provided a range of flexible seating and collaboration ‘zones’ which they could use in conjunction with their traditional way of working. These zones are designed to provide a space for staff to congregate, work and socialise, aiding seamless and organic collaboration away from their desks.
Once all furniture, fixtures, and equipment (including workstations & furniture) had been signed off, Amicus worked with our trusted supplier base to ensure that all items would be installed during a narrow window before the office was to be operational. As a combined team effort, we were able to meet this deadline while keeping the project on budget.
The new design offered EFM a fresh home for their existing office culture, while also making improvements from their last tenancy. Matching their existing look & feel, Amicus was able to deliver their fitout to their expectations and ensure a smooth transition to their new home.
