Obrascon Huarte Lain (OHL) is one of the world’s largest international construction groups with operations in over 30 countries.

In 2010 OHL expanded into the Asia-Pacific Region commencing operations in Brisbane to service Oceania and Southeast Asian markets. In June 2011, after winning a number of major infrastructure and flood rebuilding projects with the Queensland Government, OHL set up a project office at 32 Turbot Street, designed and built by Priority.



Due to further growth and expansion, OHL have since relocated to a full floor office within Matisse Tower at 110 Mary Street. Matisse Tower is positioned close to the Botanical Gardens with fantastic city views. To complement the space, OHL wanted a modern corporate office design that would showcase the company’s expertise and experience. Impressed with the fitout of the previous project, they were quick to have us prepare the design of the new office.
