October 2, 2013 – Due to continued expansion and market confidence RSM Bird Cameron Melbourne has moved to 55 Collins Street. This move supports the growth of the practice and provides an interactive, collaborative space for staff and clients.
RSM Bird Cameron’s Melbourne office has experienced consistent growth. The team recently welcomed a new partner, Brad Hutchesson, into the business services team. He joined from WHK Crowe Horwath and has more than 20 years’ experience in providing business and tax advice to SMEs and family businesses. This brings the number of Melbourne Partners and Principals to 20 and the total number of employees to over 140.
Robert Miano, Melbourne office Managing Partner, RSM Bird Cameron, said, “The move is a reflection of RSM Bird Cameron’s expected future growth in Melbourne. Many other firms might not consider a move like this in the current economy but the Melbourne Partners and Principals see this as the right time to demonstrate confidence in the business to the market. We have a strong, stable team that is preparing for the next growth phase in the economy.”
“The new office provides a platform for the Melbourne practice to continue to grow, ensuring the team has the facilities and the space to provide the best service for clients now and in the future.”
RSM Bird Cameron worked with PTID Environments to improve the connectedness across the office. This will increase opportunities for communication and collaboration for staff and clients. The design is inviting with an interactive layout, new client and internal meeting rooms, quiet spaces and large staff hub.
Zaiga Padoms, Senior Interior Designer, PTIDEnvironments, said, “The new RSM Bird Cameron facilities at 55 Collins Street, on the 20th and 21st floors, have been designed to take advantage of expansive views and natural light.
“The design provides a range of different work modes in its mix of offices, open plan and informal collaborative spaces. A high-quality finish to the reception and front-of-house meeting rooms creates a premium environment for guests and clients. An internal staircase drives connectivity between the two floors, located adjacent to a dynamic staff hub space to build a community within the office environment. Support spaces such as print rooms have been centralised, with a range of storage provided in both centralised rooms and compactus, and also localised on the floor close to teams.”
