With the client based in New Zealand, Ryman Healthcare faced the challenge of fitting out their new Melbourne-based office via long-distance communication. Their brief to McCormack was to deliver a new office with the same finishes and branding as their existing offices.
Working with the client over email added a new element of to client liaison for the McCormack project team, and deadlines were extended to allow for the delays of corresponding from overseas. The project team also successfully navigated various issues with water and air flow for the top floor office that required key negotiation with the mechanical contractors to deliver on safety standards.
McCormack and Vantage worked closely with the client to deliver a modern look and feel to the overall design. A wooden slated wall was kept as natural Victorian Ash to add a contemporary element along with feature wallpaper in the breakout space. An operable wall in the boardroom was incorporated to provide a flexible, multi-functional space, and offices were positioned strategically to provide uninterrupted views across Albert Park Lake. Due to the client’s flexibility with the program, and openness to ideas, McCormack was able to deliver a modern, bright layout that took the Ryman Healthcare brand to the next level. [/vc_column_text]
