“Innovating for a better world”, global process engineering behemoth Buhler are starting to thrive in their new Melbourne innovation centre.
Following a rigorous selection process Buhler chose to partner with Icon Interiors to design & deliver as innovating for a better world directly aligns with Icon Interiors mission of transforming workplaces to create healthy, happier & more sustainable businesses.
The innovation centre deploys VR technologies in the customer experience journey with working machinery, presentation areas with stage seating and abundance of workplace choices from quiet rooms to electric sit/stand desk & treadmill options.
Our in-house expertise - the Design Team applied the science behind spatial engagement, ergonomics and acoustic mitigation strategy as well as optimising natural light to the workstation area drawing on the WELL™ standards.
The site complexities with Town planning overlays required a 2 stage project rollout which we were able to achieve with a tight construction program, getting the Buhler team settled in while the Town Planning amendments were processed through the Shire Council
The creation of a mezzanine to gain upper level floor space required a Town Planning permit together with a secondary Building Permit to achieve compliance for the client experience machinery observation area.
“Working with Icon has been a treat! Thanks to Gavin, Bridget D & the team! Moving office locations & bringing the BUHLER Brand to life was made easier!” Bianca Hamann - Lead Project Engineer, Buhler Group
