Department of Finance
Perth, Western Australia
900 person Activity Based Working workplace for two government agencies in a four to one building collocation.

Levels 5 and 6 of One40 William Street will host 900 staff from the Department of Planning, Lands and Heritage and the Department of Transport (METRONET and Westport). The Activity Based Working environment has been designed after a strategic briefing process that included ten leadership interviews, took 60 staff through two rounds of workshops, two utilisation studies and all staff consultation for the first round of planning.

The resultant scheme has 19 work settings selected to support a range of future tasks identified as being important to future business success.

The concept design weaves between four project-specific inputs; our client vision and their aesthetic responses defined through the workshop process, the functional work these groups conduct at a whole state scale and an aboriginal artwork specifically commissioned by DPLH.

The result is a scheme that respects the context of our client and will resonate with all of their staff.
