Magellan Logistics - Tullamarine

Despite moving offices 3 times already in 10 years, David Thatcher knew they needed a workplace strategy to take their office space to the next level to support their team and growth strategy into the future.

Icon was awarded the design and construct engagement for the new Magellan flagship office space, following an extensive board selection process. Critical to Magellan’s selection of a workplace design company, was that the design team had to understand the business operation and nurture the team culture that made Magellan who they are today. The cultural challenge of moving the team from a single floor to a double story without losing team & performance connections, was resolved through strategic space utilisation and the science of people performance. The engineered outcome was extraordinary for the staff, and created a high revenue generating return on investment machine for the Magellan stakeholders.

The Icon creative design & depth of knowledge was the decider

Instead of requiring 2 kitchens to service the growing team now across 2 levels which would formalise a disconnection between the teams, the centrepiece of the amazing design solution was a mid level mezzanine to create a half way place to bring everyone together and provide and open connection with a soaring 8 meter high void. The talent share across the organisation which was identified as crucial to the Magellan growth strategy through productive collaboration & chance encounters was retained & nutured despite the team moving to a multi-level workplace.

Magellan Logistics - Tullamarine

Global disruption by Magellan!  Game changing CEO Ferdinand Magellan In 1522 AD was the first company floated to circumnavigate the earth!  Magellan logistics like their namesake have gone global too!  Despite moving offices 3 times already in 10 years, David Thatcher & his team knew they needed a workplace strategy to take their office space to the next level to support their team and growth strategy into the future.  They needed a passionate and creative team that that understood the business operation, and could maximise the team culture that made Magellan who they are today. The challenge of moving the team from a single floor to a double story without losing any of the team magic required an innovative approach.  The centrepiece of the amazing solution was a mid level mezzanine to create a half way place to bring everyone together and provide and open connection with a soaring 8 meter high void!  A place to meet, to mingle, to share and grow together!  Magellan were thrilled to partner again with the passionate Icon team - Magellan’s 3rd new office in 10 years. Despite the longstanding partnership, Magellan’s procurement team were forensic in their design team selection to win their new flagship offices. They were looking for Creativity, a team with engineering strengths with the site challenges, and finally value for money.  The final result is resounding success for the Magellan team & their valued clients!
