JLL Mascot transitions to new Activity-Based Working office

New premises features the firm’s in-house designed model and coincides with celebration of JLL’s 20-year history in South Sydney

JLL has transitioned its Mascot business to a new Activity-Based Working office. The new premises features the firm's in-house designed WorkSmart model and represents JLL's continued commitment to providing flexible working spaces for its employees across Australia.

JLL has relocated from its previous premises within the Sydney Airport Centre at 15 Bourke Road Mascot to a new office within the Connect Corporate Centre, at 191 O'Riordan Street, Mascot. The move coincides with JLL's 20 year anniversary of operating in the South Sydney market.

WorkSmart was conceived and designed in-house by JLL's Corporate Solutions team. It incorporates enhanced mobility and flexibility through multiple activity settings and work locations. The Mascot fit out was completed by the firm's Project & Development Services division , which also completed the fit outs for JLL's other WorkSmart offices across the country.

JLL's NSW Managing Director, Michael Fenton said, "The timing of our new office in Mascot couldn't have come at a better time, as we mark a milestone of delivering value for 20 years in South Sydney. Our success in the local market over the last two decades is a reflection of our trusted commitment to always achieving the best results for our clients. We are equally committed to providing working environments that foster collaboration, innovation and cater for different working styles of our diverse employees. WorkSmart has, and remains, a key factor in helping us deliver this and it's exciting to see the continued national roll out of it across Australia."

JLL's Head of South Sydney, Blair Peterken said, "Our success in the South Sydney market has allowed us to grow and we're pleased to have made the move to this fantastic new office. It has been very well received by the team, with the flexible environment, design features and central position giving it a great feel. We look forward to continuing the next chapter for JLL South Sydney in this exciting new location."

Features of the new office space include non-assigned desks, discussion hubs, meeting rooms and 'hush' rooms designed for quiet working. It has plants to improve indoor air quality, low Volatile Organic Compounds finishes to all surfaces and Recycled Gyprock board.

Other JLL offices across Australia to feature an Activity-Based Working model include Sydney CBD, Parramatta, Canberra, Perth, Melbourne and Glen Waverley. In 2011, JLL relocated its largest Sydney office to a 3,700sqm new space offering WorkSmart at 420 George Street. JLL Canberra and Perth both relocated to sustainable buildings at 121 Marcus Clarke Street Canberra, and to prominent Perth office building, Central Park.

The offices in Sydney and Canberra are located in 5 Star Green Star (v2) Office Design buildings, while Central Park has a 5 Star NABERS Energy rating. In 2014, JLL became one of only three firms in the ACT to be awarded a 5 Star Green Star - Office Interiors v1.1 Certified Rating for its office fit out.
