Unique national head office for global mining giant

Vale is the world’s second largest mining company. As a newcomer to the Australian resources sector, the Brazil-based multi-national wanted an Australian head office that would reinforce its position as an industry leader. The complex 2000sqm office design called for unique materials and high end finishes throughout, with a Hewlett Packard Halo video conferencing facility and computer room. The project timeline was tight, with works staged across each floor.

Global CEO impressed

The Vale project specified numerous unique features, such as the stainless steel staircase railings which was welded and polished to give the impression of a single, continuous piece. A seven metre high lava stone wall and office walls with vision slots and LED backlighting, all presented specific challenges. Our team’s accuracy in preparing the Halo video conferencing suite was acknowledged by Hewlett Packard technical staff as among the best in the world. The completed office was visited by Vale Global CEO Roger Agnelli, who was reportedly very impressed by the quality and style of the interior.
