Beca’s new HQ in Pitt Street needed to be WOW! Beca are a global organisation and the new HQ needed to incorporate culture change, a real NZ welcome and the stature of the organisation.
Even the codename for the refurbishment and consolidation (Project One) exuded how important the HR element of this change was.
And for INZIDE Commercial, what a fantastic project! Not only was it a high design large format project but very importantly KIPT the landlord plus BECA the tenant plus Studio Pacific the architects all wanted the existing carpet tile recycled. And this was specified into the tender for the supply of the new fit out carpet tile Eureka.
As with every floor plate there are areas that were well worn and others that were in very good nick. By separating the tile on site prior to demolition we were able to sort the tile into Re-use and re-cycle. Re-use was gifted to charitable organisations who either used it themselves or on sold it to gain funding for their specific projects. The rest was shipped to the USA to be made back into new carpet tiles. And interestingly we had both our own carpet tile and our competitors. Hence 68 tonnes of carpet was prevented from going to landfill. What a huge win for the environment, the Industry and INZIDE Commercial.
The new Interface carpet tile has a 15 year complete NZ backed warranty included for use with castor chairs. Value and performance are therefore guaranteed, extremely important for Beca.
