Case study –1-Stop Connections
A global leader in port logistic solutions, 1-Stop Connections creates innovative solutions for the global freight and logistics community. From shipping and ports to road and rail, their suite of integrated products and tailor-made solutions aim to maximise operating efficiency throughout the supply chain.
1-Stop Connections’ exponential growth over the past several years has brought a significant challenge in maintaining team connection. The workforce was disconnected due to the team being split across 3 intermittent floors. Their main objective was to bring the team together in a single floor to ensure cross-department collaboration & increased communication. This resulted in their decision to move to a unique refurbished building in Sydney.
Other challenges included:
- Workplace not reflecting company values or representing the organisation’s vision
- Timing & budget constraints
Axiom was engaged to assist in designing a workspace that reflected 1-Stop’s values of collaboration, innovation, customer focus & accountability.
Through thorough analysis of their values & vision, we were able to reflect these through various feature design elements. Connectivity was created through continuous feature ropes anchored throughout the office space. The 1-Stop logo & circle shape was used to create the central reception & innovation hub. The “Connection” feature ropes flowed from here to the various collaborative areas within the office. Shipping container walls were installed to provide connection to the software solutions end user.
The team also came together on a single floor to provide cross-department collaboration & increased communication.
Lastly, to guarantee designs were within budget, an Axiom project team was involved from the initial meeting to ensure client objectives were met and implement progressive budgeting.
