Living walls and bright working environments contribute to 5-star bid
Situated in Melbourne Docklands new commercial development 'The Guage', Fujitsu's new office reflects the sustainable attributes of the 6 Star Green Star development in its 'green' design. The rating is the Green Building Council of Australia's standard in sustainable design. The design for Fujitsu by Woodhead is aiming for ‘world’s best practice’ in environmental interior design, and expects to achieve a 5 star energy rating, adding to their 'Climate Neutral' official certification.
Woodhead Associate, Gary Beer said “The sustainable solutions within the fit-out and the building have provided a noticeable difference to the air quality, a fresh, light environment which will contribute to the well being of Fujitsu staff”.
All of the floors in the new fitout have been planned so that general staff are situated at the perimeter of the space, where daylight and views are prominent. The carefully planned internal shared spaces complement the exposed structure of the building as well as the day to day working environment of its users.
Fujitsu moved into its new Victorian headquarters with an official opening by the Premier of Victoria, The Hon. John Brumby on the 4th of September 2008
