With change becoming the new normal, what will workplaces look like going forward?  Quadric is proud to bring you the workplace re-imagined.

Australia’s leading specialist insurer, NTI (National Transport Insurance) entrusted Quadric to construct their new National and Queensland Headquarters in one of Brisbane’s most exciting new addresses at 300 George St, Brisbane.  The workplace is home to 240 people over 3000 square metres across two levels interconnected by a bespoke staircase.

Responding to a brief calling for a workplace to ‘inspire and create connection’, Base Architecture designed a floorplate allowing sightlines across the floor, featuring the use of curved timber battening and textural wall finishes, an expansive communal kitchen (‘The Hub’), and various collaborative zones and flexible meeting settings.  The workplace features natural materials and a variety of textures creating interest and authenticity with recycled timber, blackened steel, rustic brickwork and an abundance of greenery combining cleverly with touches of NTI’s brand colours.

Engaged as Principal Contractor, Quadric offered a vertically integrated solution, encompassing all elements of the construction process.  We partnered with the project team providing design coordination, and reverse engineering where required to meet budget and timeframe constraints.  Delivery of such a forward thinking and adaptable space from a cold shell is not the easiest undertaking from a services engineering perspective and hats off to BSE for navigating this so well.

With Project Directors Jacaranda Projects and Davis Sommerville actively engaged in the process, Quadric were able to reach all the key touch-points that translated into a successful project.  From our buildability input in timeframe, detailing, and budgets; to our Procore backed construction management control; to our Optima Partitions offering unrivalled acoustics and aesthetics; to our Spoke Joinery delivering bespoke elements translating the design ideas into built form.  Even the in-house delivery of the staircase became a key factor in the successful delivery of such quality working environment.

A huge thank you to NTI, Jacaranda Projects and Davis Sommerville for once again selecting Quadric to deliver on such an important project.
