Optimising work practices against activities was a key concern when designing storage solutions for Westmead Hospital’s new Finance Department. Currently undergoing a multimillion-dollar rebuilding program, the newly developed space built by FDC Construction & Fitouts was created in collaboration with HDR Rice Daubney and Team 2 Architects. Designed for 70 staff within the Finance Department, the interior accommodates Activity Based Working styles to support Westmead’s “New Ways of Working” concept. Focusing on adaptability and flexibility, Planex worked with designers to create a locker system featuring an RFID swipe card lock, mail slots and acoustic rated perforations to reduce workplace noise. Locker storage was complimented by Linea Sliding Door cabinets featuring matching perforated door fronts.
