As one of New Zealand’s leading office fit out providers, we think about the ‘who’ as well as the ‘what’. Our service is nationwide.
We know what goes into an effective workplace strategy, so we can do much more than simply supply furniture.
Meet our office interior design and fit-out experts. They know everything there is to know about optimised working environments.
From 1963 until today we have used our learning and experience to help create inspiring workspaces throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
Europlan worked with Ceres Organics on a project that involved a consultative process to create a workplace strategy for their new building. Our brief was to not only provide furniture solutions but to also help Ceres facilitate a change management program with the staff.
This was a critical element of the move as Ceres decided to change their office footprint platform from individual offices to an open plan and agile workplace. In order to achieve alignment between business goals and the requirements of the people moving into the new space we bought in specialists and consultants to help facilitate the changes occurring in the space and culture of the organisation.
The change management piece was delivered by Stella Green at Be Confident; her specialisation in property based change management provided Ceres with practical communication strategies for growth. Utilising Haworth’s Workplace Strategy Director, we worked on understanding and defining the client requirements in their transition from personal working to shared neighbourhood work styles.
We created a pilot floor plate for the furniture which was hugely successful in gaining engagement from the staff. The pilot setting allowed Ceres to generate excitement about the new building and familiarise the staff with the changes in the way they would be working.
We are continuing to work with Ceres on additional furniture requirements and to assist in maintaining the change management program post occupancy.
Ceres operates as an Organic entity therefore we required robust sustainability and quality accreditations for our products and processes. Our ability to meet the standards was one of the reasons we were successful in gaining Ceres’ business. All products were manufactured and installed to ISO:9001 and ISO:14001 standards and all products exceeded sustainability requirements and objectives.
