Case Study: Office plants to make workplace healthy at Orion Health
The healthy workplace challenge
Orion Health is a fast growing New Zealand company developing and providing clinical software to both public and private health sectors internationally. A key internal commitment is to promote staff health and wellbeing. With a rapid expansion, the company had recently refurbished and moved into new premises. Seeking a company that could help them use plants to improve workplace health, the eHealth software provider approached GreenAir.
The GreenAir office plants solution
GreenAir worked with the Orion Health team to develop ideas before delivering the final concept. GreenAir‘s healthier workplace specialists worked closely with the client and architects, to develop a unique and sophisticated solution for the space.
The plantscape solution was tailored to the Orion situation and combined over 60 plants of different textures and sizes to break the open plan space into a fresh collection of green areas. As well as improving the aesthetics of the workplace, plants were chosen to help reduce the levels of VOC in the offices. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in offices can often result from furnishings, wall coverings, and office equipment. The health impacts of VOCs vary but can include respiratory tract irritation, eye irritation, headaches, dizziness, visual disorders, and memory impairment for some people.
The outcome achieved with office plants
The GreenAir solution had a massive impact on the visual appeal of the Orion Health workplace for visitors and workers, as well as creating a healthier environment.
Orion Healths Executive Assistant to the CFO, Temmy Park, said
We were thrilled with the design creativity and the smooth completion of the fit-out of the plants in our new premises. The selection of the plants was of high quality and beautiful, and they all blended into the new look and feel of our new premises perfectly. We get huge amount of positive feedback from both staff and external visitors.
“The GreenAir team were extremely easy to deal with and offered an outstanding level of service. Mrs Park said.
