Making the move to their new building at 18/600 Bourke Street was an important one for executive search specialists Heidrick & Struggles. Not only were there tight deadlines to be met, the company also needed to align the new office with their other offices around the globe. This meant that the Heidrick & Struggles business branding and professional image had to be integrated into the overall design. The brief also outlined the need to downsize to a more functional, practical space with client meeting rooms built into the front-of-house area.
A close working relationship with design team Studio 103 and McCormack’s contractors was an imperative part of the success of the Heidrick & Struggles project. The project outlines just how effective collaborative teamwork and good relationships can be to help with problem solving and getting a project over the line.
“Advantages of using people you know is that you have the confidence in what they are going to deliver.” – McCormack Project Manager, James Keifer.
The main features of the design deliver a beautiful new entry that incorporates logo signage behind the reception desk and dramatic copper piping along the exposed ceilings. The modern, industrial feel gives an air of simplicity and refinement. The end result is a seamless contemporary design with a functional layout that enhances the brand of the business and meets the needs of those working in the space.
“In June 2018, I reached out to McCormack, on the recommendation of our landlord, for some moderate renovations we needed to have completed on our new office space at 600 Bourke. Normally I will get a couple of quotes for any design and construction work, but we were so short on the time we had to get in the space, I didn’t have such a luxury. I prayed for a fair price, fast work, and a great result. This is exactly what we received. The bonus was our project manager, James Kiefer, who made this all happen. He coordinated everything and then some. I would recommend McCormack, and James, to anyone and will plan to use them again on future projects.” – Julie Creed, Vice President, Real Estate and Investor Relations, Heidrick & Struggles[/vc_column_text]
