In making such a significant move, AACo wanted to create an office that would capitalise on staff innovation capabilities and maximise productivity. They also needed an environment that clearly communicated their brand and evoked positive feelings from staff as well as clients and visitors.

AACo’s identity is grounded in their connection to property and land. Aerial views of the properties owned by AACo were researched and the overall aesthetics of the office resemble the strong, almost architectural boundary lines and land contours. Imagery of grass and pastures are incorporated in the design, highlighting grass as a symbol of growth which supports AACo’s aim to continue to grow and innovate.

Enclosed offices are situated around the perimeter of the space and are designed with full-height glazing to the interior walls to allow natural light to permeate the office space. Open plan workstations are spacious and the modular systems allow for varying configurations to suit specific team uses. The introduction of light and the flexibility of the space combine to enhance productivity.

Our team provided a highly detailed construction program and compressed it into the shortest possible timeframe in order to meet AACo’s target for moving in to their new office. Priority delivered the project on time to a high standard, without safety concerns. AACo now works out of a modern, efficient office that accurately reflects their brand and encourages staff to work flexibly and innovatively, whilst enjoying their environment.
