Client Background

CMC Markets new Sydney branch is one of 14 global offices. 

The large global corporate offers leveraged trading on a huge range of forex, indices, commodities, shares and treasuries.

CMC Markets values care for its staff and the environment, which was very strongly reflected in the addition of 18 Living Walls in their new Office Fitout.


Scope of Works

As part of the Barangaroo development code, CMC Markets needed to include a range of 'live greenery' in their new Office Floor space. 

In order to gain Green Star Rating Accreditation (2 Plants for every 15m2 of Floor space), Valmont worked with CMC Markets to design a range of Living Walls for the area. 

Our proven natural-soil LivingWall system was selected for its ability to meet Green Star requirements. With 65m2 of Living Walls, minimal space was used, but maximum impact was gained with the amount of greenery installed in the space. 

Each Living Wall includes self-regulated irrigation, 100% Established plant modules at time of installation, and all components required for installation. 

Plants were carefully potted to create a unique pattern, using a combination of plant species for maximum impact in the space.
