Case Study


Carlton, Melbourne
770 sqm


Following the successful delivery of the Sydney workspace in 2019, Novotech – internationally recognised as a leading regional full-service contract research organisation (CRO) – once again engaged Amicus, this time in the complete demolition and re-build of their Melbourne workspace. The brief for this project was to revolutionise their way of working, transforming their existing outdated space into a collaborative and multifunctional environment flexible to future growth.


Using their new Sydney workspace design as the benchmark for future developments, the Melbourne scheme has adopted a similar look and feel, however has a unique Melbourne flavour.

Our Design Partner Hot Black have designed a vibrant, energetic and welcoming space full of natural light. Acoustics were a key component in this design. A specific noise transition plan has been developed throughout the space to ensure focus areas are separated from the bustling breakout. The workspace is fitted with a mixture of open workstations and enclosed desks to enhance noise control. Quiet spaces for focus and meetings have been positioned thoughtfully and the choice of booth seating further benefits noise reduction. This concept has been reflected in the choice of lighting as light has been dimmed as you transition from the breakout area to focus. Around the edge of the floor you find meeting rooms and the VC room where world class technology equipment has been installed. This particular room has been technologically connected to the other VC rooms statewide to maximise team interaction and collaboration.


Amicus has been able to deliver an intelligent and meticulously planned design, transforming a tired fitout into a brand new flexible workspace upgraded with collaborative breakout spaces, meeting rooms, trendy booths and adorned with top quality furniture.

The end result is a modern space, complemented by sophisticated technology and infused with natural light. Amicus has been able to deliver an efficient and functional space where staff feel proud to work. The team collaboration and motivation has had a boost and the workplace culture has been revitalised.

The team knew exactly how the project was tracking at any point in time. On many occasions, I have been provided with technical information and requirements. I am very appreciative of that and have learnt so much along the way.
It’s been amazing working with you!
