Arup’s Sydney Office has launched a pilot study designed to implement the firm’s new regional workplace strategy.
The project has seen the complete refurbishment of approximately a quarter of the existing 5,536m2 premises and acts as a pilot study ahead of a move to Investa’s new development at 151 Clarence Street in 2018.
The new office space is shaped by Arup’s values, promoting creativity and collaboration and the firm’s design-led approach to work. Close consultation has ensured staff’s motivations are at the heart of the project, while clients and collaborators are given the opportunity to experience that culture first hand.
The space represents a complete step change from Arup’s existing workplace. Divided between a studio workshop and a new activity based working (ABW) ‘neighbourhood’, the space fosters openness, and the literal creation and design of things.
