Lincolne Scott’s Melbourne office represents a new paradigm in sustainable workplace design. It has been designed to stimulate interaction between staff and develop a vibrant workplace – most importantly has explored all aspects of sustainability.
The single floor workplace demonstrates a significant sustainable outcome in a C grade, multi tenanted, non-owner occupied building for less than average fitout costs within a tight construction program.
With a focus on “dematerialisation”, this space expresses how relevant a “shell and core” approach to speculative buildings in Australia could be by highlighting how little the standard offering in office buildings is required. The majority of the floor has no ceilings or carpets and lighting has been custom designed to suit the work practices of the group.
With a current skills shortage in engineering, Lincolne Scott had two new employees elect to join them in the first two weeks in this space – because they preferred the working environment over others on offer.
“I am completely reinvigorated by this space.”
Dang Ho Dinh – State Director, Lincolne Scott
“Each morning when the lift door opens I am so excited to be coming to work in this environment.”
Bishma Jayasinghe – Engineering Graduate
