Create one interlinked workspace for different business units
Established in 1974, Group Five stands tall as one of the world’s leading construction companies, operating in over 20 countries with more than 12 000 people in its employ. As its name reflects, the company features various business units under its banner, covering integrated construction services, materials and infrastructure investment.
Most of the group’s business units had developed their own branding, way of working and identity and Head Interiors was tasked with developing a campus workspace which consolidated these various “independent” businesses under one roof with a singular vision and direction.
An airy open plan campus which works for all units while remaining space efficient
Understanding that it was crucial for these various divisions to be at ease and productive in this new environment, we decided to first engage with the group’s staff, leading an intensive change management process to enable the necessary buy-in and commitment from them.
Subsequently, we developed a common planning and design solution which would fit, and work, for all these diverse groupings while remaining space efficient.
The result is an open plan campus which it light, bright and airy while remaining relatively private which achieved a Green Star rating 4.
