Design input and flexibility deliver best practice offices

International engineering, design and consulting firm, Arup had experienced significant growth and needed a bigger home in Brisbane to house 350 staff and emphasise Arup’s position as a leader of contemporary, sustainable design and construction. SHAPE was heavily involved in the design of features such as the staircase. This showpiece has been featured in a number of design publications.

Among QLD’s earliest green fitouts

As this project was among Brisbane’s earliest green fitouts, SHAPE collaborated with the architect and educated contractors to ensure that each component met stringent criteria in manufacture, use and post-use phases.  Documentation was incomplete at the time the tender was awarded and design work continued during the construction phase. SHAPE was able to take the initiative and solve a number of issues. Arup was happy to trust our expertise and say: “you do what you think is right.”


“Thank you very much for the quality of the work and for the great co-operation.”
