As a global leader in natural and built asset design and consultancy, Arcadis is a respected company with over 75 years of experience. Following the design and completion of their Brisbane Head Office, Arcadis required a new Sydney head office that would not only hold their 465 staff – but also support a more collaborative, flexible and integrated work environment.
Set over four floors, the new Arcadis Sydney Headquarters has no assigned workstations, with clients and staff freely flowing between spaces over the four inter-connected floors. Vital to the design was the intertenancy stair case created by the Active Metal team that serves as the central artery to this agile working space.
