Design + Construct
The Financial Planning Association of Australia Ltd (FPA) was looking for an office refurbishment that would modernise their workplace, and attract younger workers to the organisation. Sheldon worked with FPA to develop a brief that would suit the budget restraints. The brief evolved from the initial wants to refurbish the entire space, to achieving the same outcome and goal, while only refurbishing part of the office.
The project was a great example of construction taking place in a live environment, with little disruption to employees continuing business as usual. The new design lifted the space, the new open plan giving all staff access to the natural light available, while maintaining acoustic properties.
The lunch area designed has played a huge role in the changing nature of FPA culture, as it provides a social environment for staff to enjoy together. The client has been thrilled with the results, and working with Sheldon to create their vision, within budget and to a tight timeline.
