The future of workspaces (it’s not just remote working)
Continuous advances in technology and changes to the workforce will have a huge impact on jobs and workplaces in the future, with professional services firms already affected by the rise of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
The firm has committed to 5,100 square metres on levels 35 to 38, taking advantage of the outdoor terrace on Level 37 as a flexible space for entertaining, meetings, socialising and enjoying the spectacular city views.
Norton Rose Fulbright will be joining anchor tenant Deloitte, who has committed to over 26,000 square metres of office space, upon completion in 2020.
Mirvac’s General Manager of Commercial Development, Simon Healy said, “As a leading global professional services firm, Norton Rose Fulbright aligns with the high calibre tenants Mirvac has secured at Olderfleet, such as anchor tenant, Deloitte. We are very pleased that the law firm was drawn to our vision for the building as a unique place to work and visit, with leading technology and sustainability design."
Norton Rose Fulbright managing partner in Australia, Wayne Spanner, said, “We’re delighted to be re-locating our Melbourne office to Olderfleet, a building which we are certain will both reflect our values and provide our partners and staff with an inspiring and technologically advanced physical platform. We are grateful to Mirvac for its support which has enabled us to make this important decision for our business.”
Mirvac is working closely with Grimshaw Architects and Carr Design to bring Olderfleet to life, with construction on the first of the office floors well underway. We have also secured a partnership to provide smart lighting throughout the building with Enlighted, a world-leading provider of IoT platforms for smart buildings, and Honeywell, a global Fortune 100 software-industrial company, to deliver workplace performance monitoring technology.
Olderfleet will be the first commercial building in Australia to roll out this new system to help tenants and building managers track activity in the workplace, leading to cost efficiencies and better performance.
