Coffey International partnered with GHD Woodhead to deliver the organisation’s first truly consolidated headquarters in South Australia. The project, known as Worldpark 01, consolidates Coffey International from a number of disparate locations across South Australia into one workplace environment delivering the benefits of increased knowledge sharing and improved efficiencies.
Coffey International’s new workplace design provides an open, naturally lit environment featuring chilled beam air-conditioning, external views for all staff and a diversity of locales to meet and work. As part of the co-location project, purpose-built laboratory spaces and soil testing facilities were provided onsite to cater for all groups within the organisation.
At the heart of the workplace design is a large central atrium, a ‘One Coffey’ space where the whole organisation can meet. The atrium is accessed via an interconnecting stair and includes a communal library, function facilities and lounge space.
GHD Woodhead worked closely with the client to apply the Coffey International brand across the three-dimensional space. Subtle design language references were made to the ideas of exploration, typography and the connected network in which Coffey International operates.
The new workplace embodies the client’s aspirations of applying its specialist skills and knowledge to finding solutions that deliver extraordinary outcomes to improve the lives of world communities.
