Australia Post, Office Fitout
Client: Australia Post
First Direct Solutions Department
Their ‘First Direct Solutions’ department relocated to new premises in Exhibition Street consisting of approximately 600m². The client wished to provide a flexible and innovative workspace for 40 staff, including open spaces for morning yoga classes and casual team meetings. In keeping with the mother business, Australia Post, a monochromatic red, white and black colour theme was adopted for the entire fitout.
This was the upgrade of Australia Post’s 500m2 executive floor into the main exception point for corporate guests. As Australia Post is a semigovernment organisation, opulence was not afforded, but a high quality finish was essential. We designed a new boardroom / conference room with a state of the art communications and presentation system including full wireless AV systems with remote controls to all applications. A secondary less formal meeting room was also incorporated. A new office for the General Manager was designed together with offices for his support managers. Since 1990, Australia Post has retained the services of Spowers for interior design, documentation, contract administration and project management of fitouts of a substantial area of the organisation’s head office at 321 Exhibition Street, Melbourne.
