Case Study

Aware Super

Aware Super is an award-winning industry super fund that’s grown to become one of Australia’s largest, providing its 700,000+ members with the better future they’ve worked hard for. With a focus on ethics and social responsibility, Aware Super both aligns with its members’ values and has its employees’ best interests at heart, too. So, when the organisation asked Haworth to recreate its new Sydney workspace, we made sure our solution would celebrate Aware Super’s reputation for collaboration and communication alike.

Location

Sydney, Australia

We worked alongside Futurespace to fit out seven office levels featuring deep floors, angular layouts and multiple columns over 17 weeks. The brief called for over 600 sit-to-stand workstations, nine executive workstations and 50 focus positions. With flexible design paramount for the client, we also installed individual pods that easily convert to extra workstation clusters for collaborative teams.

Aware Super’s continuous growth over the past 20 years means it was vital to deliver a solution that would future-proof its fitout. We opted for Sakuru – our certified Australian Made simple kit of parts that adapts to multiple uses and user needs over many lifecycles.

Aware Super

Sakuru features quality that’s built to last and a simple, clean design that complements Aware Super’s unique building floorplate. It was also a perfect match for the organisation’s focus on sustainability and the environment. Minimal material waste or need for extra components means Aware Super can transition seamlessly regardless of what workstyle changes the years ahead bring. Results include an increase in engagement, retention and teamwork across their workforce following the fit-out. With its newly improved open environment and access to daylight and views, the Aware Super team can now focus on what’s important: its members.

“Haworth has been a great partner on this project – they have met all promised timelines and have offered a level of client care that is rarely experienced,” the client said. “We are very pleased with the quality of the Haworth products and how they support our workplace.”
