Cummins engaged Venko to assist them in the consolidation of their existing offices at Box Hill & Scoresby into one flexible & agile environment at their Scoresby site. Venko collaborated in the change management process along side an independent change management consultant to ensure a fluid transition of both the consolidated staff and the workplace practice changes ahead. Venko dedicated time and attention in ensuring early engagement with Cummins staff to foster inclusion and ownership of the project so as to encourage future uptake of the new environment and ease the transition to the cultural changes the project heralds. The new design is an environment that is encouraging collaboration across service lines, aligned with their company culture and enabling innovation and growth for staff and the business. The new fit out which accommodates up to 300 staff, largely includes open plan workspaces with workstations/collaborative settings, front and back of house meeting facilities, reception/concierge, utility spaces, breakout, courtyard and support functions. This project is set for completion May 2018
Qantas consolidated their national call centre team to Hobart and engaged Venko to create a new state-of-the-art facility. The challenge was to take what was a dilapidated and tired building and create an environment that would breathe new life into the space and team. Qantas wanted to embrace alternative ways of working for a contact centre. Traditionally a dedicated desk environment, the design has moved towards the inclusion of flexible spaces, open team collaboration areas, touch down spaces and quiet rooms to enable their team to work in ways that suit their own working styles and the task at hand. Our design takes advantage of the site location by increasing the existing base building glazing, extending views and incorporating skylights to maximise the natural light throughout.
Croc Media, Melbourne
Venko recently worked with Croc Media on the fitout for their new office and Studio. The project includes offices spaces, an executive office, breakout, collaborative open meeting spaces, focus zones, quiet spaces, meeting rooms, two boardrooms and an open ‘town hall’ area for entertaining and events. The unique aspect of the project is the design of 5 different sound proof recording studios to meet the various needs for media production.
Venko completed the fitout of Level 24, 50 Collins st for GTA Consultants in early 2018 for Jones Lang Lasalle. Due to growth, the project is an extension of the traffic consultancy’s Level 25 fitout.
The recently completed refurbishment has resulted in a refreshed and revitalised atmosphere amongst staff and a positive boost to office culture.
The fitout houses the front of house reception, board room and flexible meeting facilites in addition to staff breakout facilities and team expansion areas.
Venko are proud that SEMZ chose to partner with us to design their new offices in East Melbourne. SEMZ have established themselves in the Melbourne property market in recent years and their move to East Melbourne is a testament to the growth of their business. Their new office has been designed to provide a flexible space for staff that is both comfortable and stimulating. The sit-to-stand desks are being widely utilised and the 'SEMZ booth' a hit for both formal and informal meetings.
The popular breakout area has been strategically positioned at the entrance to the office to promote interaction and connectivity not only between staff but with visiting clients and industry partners.

Erbas are a nationwide Engineering Services Consultancy who have expanded into the Melbourne market during the past 2 years.

The space includes team workstations and shared open meeting spaces and collaborative zones to encourage sharing of information between the different engineering disciplines.
BMW Finance, Melbourne
Venko were engaged to provide Interior Design services for the new BMW Financial services department integrated fitout. The project worked to a compact program and required careful coordination between the whole project team. The design focused on using global guidelines to emphasise branding and a consistent design approach across all sites internationally. Venko implemented a “hybrid’ design philosophy for BMW through a modular planning approach as they will progress to Activity Based Working over time. The design emphasis was on providing a mix of shared spaces, quiet rooms, meeting rooms of various sizes and settings, collaborative spaces, breakouts and flexible working environments
