AMC was engaged in 2016 to develop an Accommodation Brief to establish key design principles to inform future fitout and refurbishment works of its existing locations across the country. AMC undertook consultations with Executive staff to understand the government agencys strategic accommodation objectives, identify benchmark projects and develop a set of design guidelines informed by the culture, corporate image, technology, operational requirements and projected growth of the organisation.
Subsequently, AMC prepared a number of test-fits for the clients new Canberra office at 28 Sydney Avenue. The new fitout included a combination of open plan workstation areas and enclosed offices, a number of meeting and conference rooms, as well as legal and secure store areas and breakout spaces. AMC incorporated tones of green and charcoal into the fitout design with elements of leather and stone to create sophisticated yet contemporary spaces. The extensive legal library was prominently displayed along key walkways, improving access to these resources as well as providing interest and colour to the open plan work areas.
AMC has since completed a number of fitout modifications and minor works projects in Townsville, Darwin, Cairns and Melbourne to align its accommodation portfolio to the new design guidelines.
