Dexus launches third Dexus Place in Brisbane

Dexus (Dexus) today announced the launch of Dexus Place Brisbane, the third in its portfolio. Dexus Place is an intelligently designed, premium workspace that provides solutions for all meeting, training and conference space requirements.

Conveniently located at Waterfront Place Complex, Dexus Place is a unique space in the Brisbane office market appealing to a wide range of customers, from small office space users servicing national clients in multiple locations, to large corporates seeking a home for their client functions, strategy days and collaborative meetings.

Dexus Executive General Manager, People and Asset Solutions, Deborah Coakley said: “With the introduction of Dexus Place, we are able to offer our Brisbane customers a space they can treat as an extension of their own workspace.

“We understand our customers’ business needs, and travelling interstate for meetings can be expensive and time consuming. Dexus Place redefines the concept of commuting along the eastern seaboard, with stateof-the-art video conferencing technology making it easier for our customers who now have the benefit of conveniently connecting their clients and workforces in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.”

The facility is equipped with the latest collaborative technology, including a nine seat Polycom® RealPresence Immersive StudioTM providing real-as-life collaboration experience which connects teams in remote locations, including the studios at Dexus Place Sydney and Melbourne.

Huddle spaces and meeting rooms are also equipped with video collaboration solutions including the newly released Polycom® Realpresence TrioTM – the world’s first smart hub for group collaboration, extending easy to use, no-compromise audio and visual collaboration throughout the facility.

Tony Simonsen, Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand, Polycom said: "In Polycom's recent Workplace of the Future Survey we found that, while 97 per cent of Australian and New Zealand businesses believe collaboration is key to remaining competitive, most are reliant on 20th Century technologies such as email to undertake more complex collaboration tasks that other technologies might be better suited for.

“Dexus Place provides businesses and individuals with instant access to those cutting edge collaboration solutions, fully integrated into an exceptionally designed workspace for the best experience. This represents a tremendous opportunity for companies to unleash their collaboration potential and embrace a new way of working.”

A sister to its Sydney and Melbourne counterparts, Dexus Place Brisbane is the third in a series of highly thought out spaces which embody the essence of each city’s lifeblood and culture.

Girvan Waugh Design Manager, Nicholas Kaspareck, said: “Our concept was to create a corporate space with a relaxed atmosphere where customers work indoors while feeling outdoors.”

The perforated corten steel entrance door and the reception design set the scene for the facility where architectural elements are inspired by the city’s social and environmental context. The quasi-residential interiors contrast with the industrial materials to create a workplace that naturally stimulates its people.

A monthly membership model is available to Dexus tenants providing them the flexibility to use the space and its services as frequently as they like via a live online booking site at www.dexusplace.com . Dexus Place is also available on a casual rates basis.
