End Of Trip Facilities
Increasingly end users are looking for healthy buildings to work within that champion sustainability, longevity, health and wellness. This includes overall building sustainability ratings, locally produced and manufactured furniture and fittings, flexible working options, access to public transport, employee lockers and suitable end-of-trip-facilities.
With more employees working flexibly and choosing sustainable transport methods, companies are offering employees personal locker storage to start and end their day. Employee lockers support flexible workplace needs by optimising company real estate and resources. These modular locker systems allow facilities to grow storage with reduced costs to the company and the environment. Whereas End-of-trip lockers promote the use of public transport and reduce reliance on cars. Read below to find out about some of our past projects that featured end-of-trip-facilities.
Located in Kew, Melbourne, Vision Australia’s lush interior uses sensory design to assist people with low vision to feel more empowered within the workplace. With a workforce made up of 240 visually impaired employees, colour is deliberately used throughout the building to provide practical navigation solutions. Planex was selected to supply a customised locker system in a range of coloured powder coats featuring Braille numbering for visually impaired employees. Linea Sliding Door cabinets were also specially designed to match punch pattern acoustic panelling featured throughout the building.
RMIT Design Hub
RMIT’s Design Hub is a progressive educational environment located in Carlton, Melbourne. Designed across two levels in a raw steel finish, Planex’s steel lockers introduced a flexible end-of-journey experience to increase accessibility and optimise collaborative learning at RMIT’s Design Hub. Locker doors feature Linea acoustic punch patterns demonstrated to reduce noise in the workplace. A new joining system enables fast assembly and the ability to reconfigure and reuse and provides better flexibility than traditional locker storage.
Western Sydney University
Designed across 10 levels in an array of different powder-coat finishes, Planex’s steel lockers introduced an adaptive end-of-journey experience to increase accessibility, maximise social connection points at Parramatta’s WSU. Locker doors feature ‘X’ steel punch pattern perforations and are powder-coated in different colours across 10 levels. A new joining system enables fast assembly and the ability to reconfigure and reuse and provides better flexibility than traditional locker storage.

Peoples Choice Credit Union
PCCU has been built around activity-based working with a focus on sustainability and workplace acoustics. The 21,450sqm office space was assembled in collaboration with architects Woods Bagot to house approximately 600 staff over 6 levels. Planex worked with designers to develop a custom perforation design for the lockers. To make practical use of the interior, the backs of lockers are fitted with audio-visual equipment and acoustic screens.
