Australian companies Woodhead and Lend Lease have created an environmentally friendly space for Fujitsu Victoria.

Fujitsu are turning green, with their new Melbourne headquarters setting the pace for sustainable design.

The offices are located within the 6-star, Green Star Certified ‘The Gauge’ in Melbourne Docklands, and are a collaboration between Australian design companies Lend Lease and Woodhead.

“Fittings and furniture are not the only part of making an office space work,” Woodhead Associate Gary Beer says, “creating healthy working environments, through the use of new and sustainable technologies, is now the key to designing great workplaces.”

Woodhead have utilised natural light and an open-plan space to improve the experience of employees, and have also included a ‘bio-wall’ and sustainable wood panelling in the reception area.

“The sustainable solutions within the fit-out and the building have provided a noticeable difference to the air quality, and a fresh, light environment,” Beer says.

‘The Gauge’ itself is a project by Lend Lease, and is one of the most environmentally sustainable buildings in Melbourne. It features technologies to assist in water and electricity conservation, as well as facilities such as bike racks, showers and lockers to encourage commuters to leave their cars at home.
