Maxton Fox Furniture Systems worked with Cox Architects and Interiors on the commercial workplace fitout for the new John Holland development at Macquarie Park, Sydney. Maxton Fox manufactured a broad range of workstation and joinery elements for the $165.7 million commercial office development in Sydney’s Macquarie precinct.

Completed in 2020, the 35,000-square-metre building designed by Cox Architecture at 45 Waterloo Road consists of 11 floors of Grade A, 5 Star Green rated commercial office space.

Maxton Fox was engaged by John Holland and the tenanted client to manufacture all workstations and joinery throughout the 11 floors of commercial workspace, consisting of work settings, communal areas, meeting rooms and quiet booths.

The building includes a large reception area while an internal atrium with skylights provides for natural daylight throughout the large floor plates, giving great lines of sight, openness and a full perspective of the shape of the building from the ground floor.

Cox Architects and Interiors worked with the Maxton Fox design and development team on the commercial workplace design to create a range of new product types to suit the design and core activities of the client organisation.

Maxton Fox delivered an end-to-end service for the project from design and development consultancy on product and custom joinery components, detailed shop drawings, and rapid and on-time manufacturing, to quality control and delivery, with their dedicated onsite installation team project-managing the entire installation for excellent design outcomes.

Maxton Fox manufactured and installed multiple workstation types including sit-to-stand 4-way cluster ‘Podium’ workstations, sit-to-stand straight back to back 4, 6 and 8 cluster ‘Podium’ workstations, a range of ‘Pilot’ workstations as well as standing height bench-type ‘Pilot’ desks.

Maxton Fox also installed boardroom tables, meeting room tables, custom reception joinery, modular and demountable quiet rooms, reception counters and podiums, custom banquet seating, large communal kitchens, custom planter and joinery features using moulded Corian and marble tops, and toilet partitions.
