Parramatta City Council recently chose to use GECA certified furniture from Aspect Furniture Systems for its new Rydalmere Operations Centre. The council chose the ‘Zurich 4‘ workstation, which is certified under GECA’s Furniture, Fittings and Foam standard, demonstrating a lower environmental, health and social impact.
Aspect was selected as the successful tenderer thanks to its experience and capability to supply, as well as its flexible, modular systems that are adaptable over the life of the product. Environmental credentials also played a crucial role: Aspect was chosen on the strength of its product being certified against GECA’s standard.
“Aspect contributed significantly during the specification and final design stages, taking conceptual briefs through to finished products for several items,” said Grant Kennerley of Aspect Furniture. “The entire project was delivered extremely successfully, on time throughout all programme milestones.”
The new Rydalmere Operations Centre took 12 months to complete and will house up to 300 of the council’s workforce, including staff from civil and parks maintenance, cleansing, sign making and carpentry, mechanical workshop, fleet and animal holding services. It will also accommodate design, technical and waste management staff previously located in Civic Place, Parramatta.
