RSM Bird Cameron Melbourne on the move to support growth

RSM_Bird_Cameron_Logo@2xOctober 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.”

The Langham Melbourne connects guests with Meru Networks’ WLAN

The Langham Melbourne has implemented a Meru Networks 802.11n wireless local area network (WLAN) to offer all guests a seamless connection to the Internet.

Popular for its sophisticated and timeless elegance, The Langham Hotel Melbourne offers five-star luxury accommodation and superb business facilities and conference rooms.

Neeraj Subramanian, information technology manager at The Langham Melbourne says that Meru Networks was selected over other major vendors based on its signal strength and scalability.

“The Meru Networks solution fit our requirements best, as it was able to provide a strong and stable signal strength, despite the potential hurdles our concrete buildings impose. With the Meru Networks WLAN, guests are able to surf the Internet without any interference, regardless of where they are in the hotel.”

“This is especially important for guests who expect seamless connection whether they are relaxing at the bar, or busy working on events in the conference rooms. We needed a WLAN provider that could not only reach every corner of the hotel, but also allow for unexpected surges in guests’ online activity.”

Neeraj said, “Thanks to Meru’s unique single-channel approach and ability to support high densities of wireless users with no channel interference, we have experienced a significant reduction of guest complaints. Guests are able to rely on The Langham Hotel’s ability to provide visitors with an uninterrupted and accountable wireless connection.”
