The team at Baumgart Clark Architects is pleased to announce that the practice has been appointed as lead consultant for the Victorian Auditor-General’s Office (VAGO) workplace design project, to be located here in Melbourne’s CBD. Baumgart Clark Architects is delivering the project in collaboration with Nexus Designs and a range of expert sub-consultants.

The project is on a tight timeline, and we are collectively working through a range of unique design challenges. Building the design team’s understanding of the staff’s role in supporting the Auditor-General, who is an Officer of the Parliament of Victoria, has been extremely important. The Auditor-General and his teams’ activities contribute directly to the public good, and the proposed design responds in turn to the organisation’s values as they are applied by the staff in their day-to-day work.

This significant project is Baumgart Clark Architect’s largest workplace design project to date. The design will see the exploration and application of a range of contemporary workplace solutions. The project, which seeks to introduce elements of a new activity-based working methodology to the organisation, will provide a new workplace for staff in 2017.

The project’s timeline has required a level of intense focus and dedication, and Baumgart Clark Architects and the team are working in earnest to deliver this exciting project.
