Client brief

Transformational change consultancy Challenge Consulting approached Officeworks with a vision to create a more visitor-friendly office layout and comfortable working environment for it’s employees. It was important to the client that three problem areas were addressed:

  • Improve the meeting room layout
  • Create a welcoming reception area
  • Reduce noise levels in the main office space


The Officeworks project management team managed the entire project to a very high standard and all work was completed within the agreed budget. Through intelligent design and researched furniture recommendations Officeworks provided a creative solution which encompassed:

Meeting room: A new circular table with stackable chairs to maximise space, provide flexibility and enhance staff engagement in meetings.

Reception: We moved the receptionist’s workstation to create an accessible layout and designed a warm, welcoming reception area by adding a seating area for visitors.

Main office space: We addressed the noise levels by replacing the dark wood flooring with an attractive but hard wearing carpet.
