As one of the world’s largest toll-road operators, everything Transurban does works to get people where they want to go, as quickly and safely as possible. While designing, building and operating toll roads is forefront to the business, Transurban is also a technology company, both on and off the road, and their new Queensland headquarters is testimony to their innovative and future thinking.
Investing significantly in their people, Transurban Queensland is now located in a landmark new workplace at 300 George Street in Brisbane, with a host of technology features integrated into the space.
As Transurban’s Technology Consultant for Built Environments, Norman Disney & Young worked with our client to identify opportunities for new possibilities and create great workplace experiences. Technology is everywhere, busy working away behind the scenes to provide a frictionless experience for their team.
Meeting spaces automatically detect people as they enter a room and connect them wirelessly to audio visual technology. Sensors monitor and manage meeting spaces and desk availability. Staff mobile devices provide controlled access throughout the building’s secure zones including car parks, lifts and end-of-trip facilities. All workplace tools and access to utilities and services is never more than a touch away using the Transurban workplace mobile phone app.
The Guest Welcome Area features a huge panoramic floor-to-ceiling high definition video wall spanning the entire building core showcasing its Brisbane road assets. But the highlight of the new workplace is a series of stunning “ceiling lagoons” that instantly draw the attention of visitors and guests the moment they enter the space, collecting real-time data and blending it with beautiful digital art.
