"The first step toward change is awareness"

OUR ETHOS

 

Our personal exposure to the living conditions that face fly in fly out workers has encouraged us to focus our expertise and extensive industry knowledge to create and deliver considered, inspiring and positive interior spaces that are designed to improve the wellbeing and productivity of workers further. 

  • We implement intelligent workspace solutions to reduce potential mental health issues by focusing on environmental influences together encouraging social interaction. 

  • We can contribute to increased mental resilience and wellbeing with considered interior finishes, colours and materials reflecting a sense of nature and comfort for on-site accommodation and recreational areas.

PREVENTION IS BETTER

THE BENEFITS 

 

  • You can assist you to achieve significantly improved worker engagement, to attract and retain capable and motivated staff.

To achieve a positive workplace, recreational and social environment for your workforce, that results in your workers becoming more productive and engaged, Project Blue recommend the following ‘Intelligent Design Principles’ be followed;

 

  • Furniture and furnishings should be such that they have minimal institutional connotations. Materials and selected finishes for furniture should be both tactile and visually appealing and communicate the balance of a home-like environment. 

 

  • Studies have indicated that people respond best to an interior environment which has naturally warm materials such as timber, textured fabrics and wallpapers, plants and greenery. 

 

  • Good task lighting, natural light and ventilation are essential for good mental health and a sense of wellbeing, which results in higher levels of work productivity and better social interaction. 

 

ENRICHING THE WORKPLACE WITH BIOPHILIC DESIGN 

We are increasingly aware of the trend of biophilic design, where studies have suggested an improvement to employees’ wellbeing, performance, inspiration and productivity in the workplace. 

 

Furniture with natural woods and recycled materials, natural lighting, vertical gardens, garden terraces, plants and views to the outdoors. 

Are some of the elements; together with the implantation of colours relating to nature create environments that boost collaboration between people, concentration and creativity.

 

The term Biophilic was coined by social psychologist Eric Fromm in 1964, but the concept goes back to the very genesis of mankind. That is, human beings are wired to respond favourably to nature. That’s the condensed version, of course, but there is no lack of evidence to bolster the claim.
