I have had the pleasure of working with Alex and Kelly from Linear on three recent Golder Associates projects. They completed our Port Melbourne office in 2011, and went on to complete our Adelaide office of 3000m2, only recently opened at the beginning of May 2014. During this time they also undertook the relocation and redesign of our Newcastle 1000m2 office, complete in November 2013. While the Linear team are based in Melbourne they undertook the remote locations with ease and never once compromised us the client or the design vision. Regular site visits were established from the beginning of the project and the commitment and dedication to each of these interstate projects was outstanding. Both Kelly and Alex are very approachable and had great rapour with all of the Golder team members throughout the design and on site process.
All projects have been a huge success for Golder, each with they own design feel, but brought together with an overarching design concept developed by Linear. I would have no hesitation in recommending Linear for any Interior project, either in Victoria, or indeed interstate.
I worked with Alex and Kelly from Linear Designs and Mick from Corporate Fitout Solutions on a corporate office design and fit-out project for ESTA in late 2013. I found the team to be a talented, professional partnership that produced a wonderful new home for ESTA’s Support Office. Alex and Kelly worked well with business leads and the Executive team winning us over with their creative and clever ideas. Once a design was established, Mick delivered to perfection. I have no hesitation in recommending Alex, Kelly and Mick for a corporate design and fit-out project.
Kelly and Alex helped guide us through a process we had no expertise in, in a way that was intelligent and engaging. Using Focus Groups helped us get maximum buy in from our staff throughout the design journey. The overall design result is “on brand” creating a space that is aligned to our vibrant and innovative culture. Linear worked with the Base Building Architect and were able to integrate almost all engineering services components, which meant we were able to meet our budget but compromising quality of the outcome in any way. I would be more than happy to recommend Linear to any company, wanting an exciting new interior fitout that all staff are inspired to work in!
Alex and Kelly were both instrumental in the success of our new office. The professionalism and attention to detail that Linear brought to our design has resulted in our new office being the envy of other MWH offices throughout Australia. Their collaborative approach to the design meant that the final result reflected not only a professional and fully functional design but an office that reflected MWH as a company. They were flexible in accommodating to our many design changes and were pivotal to delivering the project on time and budget.
Our new fitout is not only functional but really reflects our company – its values and connection to the Church. Your commitment and attention have been outstanding and have resulted in something quite unique.
It has been a great experience for me working with you both. Your approach to working with us and your understanding of what would suit our needs was nothing less than fantastic. I have learnt many things from both of you which will stand me in good stead for future undertakings.
L.E.K. Consulting engaged Linear Designs to assist creating our new office space at 8 Exhibition Street in Melbourne. Alex and Kelly were with us each step of the way, starting with choice of location and floor plate, through the design and working with builders and other specialists to deliver the stunning new workspace.
For our firm, the move was more than a change of address – it encompassed creating a space to accommodate new ways of working, encouraging innovation, teamwork and flexibility. Alex and Kelly understood the brief, and together we delivered the outcome because they helped to engage the whole office team in new solutions and navigating the change. Linear listened to our needs, balanced creativity and pragmatism in designing the space, and they challenged us to embrace new ideas.
The result is fantastic. Our team loves the new works space. Clients are impressed. It’s a great place to work.
