Stirling transfer for ThyssenKrupp

In a move that highlights the shortage of office space in Perth, German engineering firm ThyssenKrupp has relocated to the new $29 million City of Stirling building, taking out 1,800 square metres of floor space, after failing to find suitable space in the inner-city.

The new fit-out was completed in a six-week period, enabling staff to leave the old office on Great Eastern High-way on a Friday and come to their new office in Stirling the following Monday.

ThyssenKrupp WA chief financial officer Neil Griffin said the move had hardly affected business, and that staff members were happy with the move.

“Everyone previously had their own office, but we are now open plan, and it has taken a bit of adjusting, but the majority of staff are happy,” he said.

T&Z interior designer David Hall, who worked on the project with In Site project manager Murray Simcock, said the business’s “overall community” was now on one floor, which was a main objective of the move.

“Engineers use a lot of space, and use a lot of paper, so we have large ‘u’ shaped work stations, and there is also high storage requirement,” Mr Hall said.

“By making the office predominantly open, there is maximum flexibility and adaptability for different groups.

“There are a lot of storage systems along the corridors to make them dual function spaces, and the kitchen is in a central area drawing the two wings of the long office together.”
