Plant & Food Research is a New Zealand-based science company providing research and development that adds value to fruit, vegetable, crop and food products.
Plant & Food Research’s Mt Albert site is the largest of the company’s 14 New Zealand sites and home to around 300 staff. As Head Office, the site also contains many of the administrative functions for the business.
Plant and Food Research decided to re-purpose the Cunningham Building which is situated in the heart of their Mt. Albert Auckland Campus. Converting the office and storage space into new social and formal meeting areas was not easy. Stripping the rabbit warren of small offices in the Cunningham building to reveal the building’s art deco shell was highly complex and Interface carpet tile was the perfect way to merge deco with modern design, creating different spaces easily.
Add to this design capability, Interface’s 15 year full performance warranty (including castor chairs), life-time anti-microbial built into the product itself and excellent appearance retention qualities and it was an easy decision for Creative Spaces to partner with INZIDE to find the right Interface product.
