After outgrowing their existing workplace, JJs Waste & Recycling consolidated to a new location, designed to support collaborative ways of working.


JJs Waste & Recycling is Australia’s largest privately owned waste management company, with over 2,000 employees nationally. They were previously spread across a number of buildings on their existing premises, but they were outgrowing it and needed more space.

After purchasing an industrial building nearby, JJs Waste & Recycling approached our team to overhaul the warehouse and create a space that would unite their team under one roof and be true to their 90-year heritage. They also wanted to create a space that was welcoming and help attract and retain talent.

The design incorporates all the amenities for a collaborative and flexible work environment, including a large open plan work area, outdoor entertaining space, quiet rooms, assigned offices, boardroom and a dynamic breakout for their people to socialise over lunch.

We referenced their brand by featuring a number of green and natural tones throughout. As a further nod to the company’s heritage, we created a custom graphic in the welcome area which celebrates their business evolution and history.

To make sure the new office space would function effectively within the warehouse, our team incorporated additional features for the acoustic treatment, and introduced a temperature-controlled system.

To create a holistic space, we also updated the facade of the building, which is now painted in similar tones to the new workspace.

Our team approached the project in close collaboration with the leadership team at JJs Waste & Recycling, to keep each milestone on schedule and complete it within a 12 week timeframe.

Crest's professionalism and competence is top of the line according to this experience. Their attention to detail was excellent. The team have a very personal approach which is in line with being a family owned and operated company.
