Fire & Rescue Headquarters NSW by GroupGSA is a contemporary, state-of-the-art commercial facility that includes an Activity Based Working (ABW) fit-out. Architecture, interior design and landscape architecture disciplines were employed by GroupGSA to deliver an innovative, inspiring and flexible workplace.
The three-storey glass building provides a vibrant and active office space that helps the organisation create a unified culture with a shared purpose. Slanted off-form concrete columns symbolise the unification and heroism within the organisation. To bring people together and create a sense of community, shared staff hubs and zones for collaboration were designed. The integration of a café and media wall was also included in the design, to be utilised during major emergencies and media releases.
Tongue n Groove solid engineered European oak floorboards in the Ardesia colour, Eterno classic wire-brushed finish and Grande format are used as the feature walls throughout this workplace, adding warmth to the interior.
