A growing relationship: A1 Office Fitouts
A1 Office Fitouts design, construct, project manage and maintain office spaces. They believe that offices should possess synergy with a business’s brand and culture to make the day to day logistics of doing business easier.
In the competitive world of interior design and fit outs, A1 needs to stay ahead of the game and they do this with a focus on listening to their client’s unique needs and, as such, they work with an understanding that there is no such thing as a ‘typical’ design.
Why does A1 Office Fitouts use plants in their designs?
“Plants play a big part in the way we design our offices”, explains Karl Simity, Project Consultant for A1. “We use them a lot to bring life to a stale environment.”
Plants often align with A1’s clients’ brand and culture goals; they:
- Promote sustainability
- Improve well-being
- Improve staff productivity
- Improve air quality
- Display a healthy, thriving business to staff and clients
With each space designed by A1 comes a new experience and a new understanding of office design. They are constantly learning and evolving with the times, staying at the forefront of the office fitout and design industry. While indoor plants are nothing new, A1 and Ambius take it to a new level by combining not only aesthetics and environmental sustainability but also practicality: using plants as sound-proof barriers as well as to insulate and cool buildings.
Why work with Ambius?
Where the impact of a poor installation could be so harmful to A1’s reputation, it’s important they work with suppliers who share their values of upholding quality service and a product that lasts.
“I think it’s definitely our relationship. We’ve built good trust and definitely believe in the service they provide,” Karl said of Ambius.
“The maintenance is great and the cost is important,” he added.
A1 and Ambius have developed a collaborative partnership where each brings their own expertise to the table. It is built on a process that takes A1’s detailed understanding of a client’s requirements and translates into a Plantscape installation that meets those needs.
