Commercial + Workplace

Placing user experience and wellbeing at the forefront of building and workplace design.

With the world’s perception shifting on how we work and where we work, there is an active drive for asset owners to rethink how they will design future buildings or adapt their current assets to suit the evolving needs of changing occupier and tenant demands.

Today we are seeing a rejuvenation of the workplace where human experience and wellbeing is at the forefront of building and workplace design. Creating value for a new office building or workplace is now more than simply designing efficient plant and maximising lettable area. Flexibility, adaptability, wellness, sustainability, and the appropriate use of technology are often competing factors that building owners must consider when creating a unique and attractive offering for tenants.

Our team is passionate about designing desirable and collaborative spaces for tenants, and with our team’s in-depth understanding of tenant requirements we will assist building owners and operators during tenant negotiations to achieve the best outcomes for all parties.

INNOVATORS IN

Office Buildings

Prospective tenants have become far more sophisticated and savvier when selecting a new office building for their workplace. With the rise of millennial workers and greater flexibility in working arrangements post-pandemic, new office buildings must offer something unique to attract tenants. Curated retail, a sense of place, first class amenities, flexible floorplates with a focus on technology, wellness and sustainability are baseline requirements to attract quality tenants.

We believe that new office buildings should be designed to be people centric, utilising technology to enhance the user experience whilst providing a greater level of granularity of control and understanding of the operation of the building. Our team will define a clear sustainable and wellness pathway for construction and operation of the building through modelling and the use of DFMA principles for lower embodied and operational carbon, less waste and faster construction programs. All this should be achieved whilst maximising the assets value and minimising operational costs through efficient and resilient plant strategies.

Office FItouts

Every fitout project is a journey that sees a business re-invent themselves. It is a reimagining of their culture – embracing new possibilities for their business through new physical space. With many companies offering work from home flexibility, tenants should invest in their built environment to create people centric spaces that ‘earn the commute.’

To create adaptable, flexible, simple to use workplaces that people love to work in, engineering partners must provide pragmatic solutions that allow a client’s imagination and vision come to life. We provide the building blocks that allow unique spaces to be created including ICT consulting for enabling technology, and sustainable solutions aligned with user’s wellbeing that allows full expression of our client’s unique identity.

Sustainability

Delivering green workspaces

Delivering healthy, green buildings benefits the environment, benefits occupant’s health, and creates a positive point of difference to attract prospective tenants.

ADP is proactive in driving WELL standards across our projects that enhance human health and well-being. We have a team of WELL  Accredited Professionals delivering  WELL projects across Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.

ADP has two of the first WiredScore APs in Australia, the global digital connectivity certification system that evaluates the connectivity of buildings.

Technology

Delivering connected buildings

As our industry excels towards a digital future, building owners must ensure they have a resilient infrastructure in place and their building assets are future-ready, with the flexibility and capacity to adapt to new and advancing technologies. Another critical factor is showing prospective tenants that the building will provide a seamless digital connectivity experience that is user centric.

Our ICT team can help you with all your technology and communication needs, from Infrastructure and ICT networking to agile workspaces, audio visual, security and surveillance, intelligent buildings, and mobile apps.
