GHD Case Study

Our client, GHD is one of Australia’s leading professional consulting companies with a strong focus on the delivery of innovative, sustainable solutions. They understand the benefits of providing a quality office fitout for staff. When the time came to fit out their own offices in their new premiere location of 211 Victoria Square, Adelaide, they asked Ambius to install and maintain an interior plantscaping design that would not only look fantastic, but help them gain points towards their Green Star rating with the Green Building Council of Australia.

The brief

The decision to have indoor plants was made for environmental and aesthetic reasons. GHD wanted to add indoor plants to provide a quality visual amenity that also helped to make staff feel more comfortable and relaxed. The plant installation provides a green, contemporary look whilst having limited impact on the available workspace within the office.

The solution

GHD’s Interior Design team worked with Ambius to source and install this project. Ambius assisted with recommendations of suitable plant varieties and designs within the set budget. Ambius recommended using a Schiavello Vertical Garden, with mass planting in small pots. The plants used on the project are two varieties Scindapsus aureus (Pothos). Using the Pothos en masse helped to provide design impact and provided walls of plants that are very striking from every angle.

The results

Implementation of the vertical plant walls in GHD’s new commercial fitout has complemented and enhanced the overall ambience of the working space. To ensure the plants continue to look great Ambius provides ongoing maintenance.

GHD are extremely happy with the installation and ongoing service from Ambius plant technicians. Since installing their vertical garden, GHD have received many favourable comments from staff and clients about this lush interior feature and it contributed to the fitout being awarded a commendation from the Design Institute of Australia.

“The installation of this sizeable project was carried out quickly and efficiently and the minimum of fuss. Constant communication between the installers and the GHD fitout team at every stage ensured a seamless delivery of the project.. Post installation service from Ambius has been exemplary and we are amazed at the rapid growth and health of the plants…”
