GrainCorp built new office space and boardroom for the head office in Liverpool New South Wales. The precinct houses high-level management teams working and communicating with staff across the nation. At the completion of the development, Graincorp found the acoustics of the new space to be less than optimal for teleconferencing and meetings. The echo in the board room made it difficult to hear a standard conversation let alone host a meeting with several people involved. The cause of the echo was lots of hard surfaces and an open plan office space allowing for noise to bounce from surface to surface.
GrainCorp approached Avenue Interior Systems via our parent company, Flexshield. We understood their need to work within restrictive timeframes while delivering a high work standard.
Avenue Interior Systems customised a solution for GrainCorp. Our NSW sales representative visited the site and discussed the best options to improve their space. The face to face interaction with the client allowed clarity on how the application would work.
We supplied and installed our Calando panel to the ceilings and wall areas throughout the open-plan offices, boardroom and lunchroom. We also added an Acoustic Door from our Flexshield range to the board room. The work was completed safely with no risk to staff and improved the working environment substantially.
The result of the panels has been tremendous and has exceeded the expectations of the business. It has made a vast difference to the noise throughout the office, and the staff are impressed. The workers now have a quiet enjoyable place to work.
