Optus trusted us to create and install wall graphics for its campus at Macquarie Park in Sydney, including the C1 Optus Campus, Public Transport Hub and recently The Lyon’s Den, a new end-of-trip facility.
The Lyon’s Den is a new space for staff who cycle, run and play sport daily. The facility is designed for comfort, creating an inclusive space with gender neutral change rooms, 450 digital pin lockers, e-bike chargers, drying cabinets, ironing stations, a towel service, hairdryers and even a high-tech bike repair station.
The challenge was to create and install five wall graphics totalling 50 metres in length, during COVID-19.
Optus went into hard restrictions in March and no-one, from staff and contractors to visitors was permitted on-site.
Working around these restrictions remotely, our team had countless Zoom and phone calls to discuss requirements which resulted in a final project meeting with property stakeholders in a car park!
The next challenge was to carry out a full measure on-site, confirming what material could be used on various wall surfaces and the risks with cutting around water pipes, electrical cabling and air conditioning. This also required the supplier to have a security clearance and health declaration checks to gain approval from Optus before any work could start.
As the project progressed, Optus announced the staged lifting of restrictions. The Lyon’s Den opening date fell naturally into place, and by encouraging staff to return to work using a safer way to travel instead of public transport this amazing facility was about to be born.
The complexity was to design the creative around existing signage and fixtures in 5 days from artwork to installation.
The overall print quality is impressive, and the natural, clean looking profile cut vinyl material beautifully installed, taking around nine hours to complete.
Most importantly, our customer Optus was ecstatic with the final result, as are the many staff that now make use of this awesome facility.
