Designs of commercial buildings are shifting towards improving employee health, moods and performance, the effect of lighting choice is paramount in achieving this. Light quality becomes critical to the effectiveness of a space, get it right and the result is a healthier and happier workplace.
The new American Express (AMEX) headquarters in Australia has been designed with this in mind. The overall aim to provide a functional, professional space that promotes the best for those that work within the space. Located on Shelley Street in Barangaroo, Sydney, this building includes office workspaces, conference rooms, a ground floor retail and underground parking for its staff and visitors.
Working closely with DSA Consulting, Buildcorp and PM Electrical, we were thrilled with the opportunity to complete a 10 level commercial building for the AMEX headquarters.
Buildcorp approached us to redesign the lighting plan to meet new design concepts for the project. Our proposal included lux level calculations and a lighting redesign across every level for the building including the lobbies, offices, meeting rooms, kitchen, amenity and break out rooms.
