Christie Spaces - Creating Inclusive Communities
How Christie Spaces transformed from just offering office spaces to inspiring a sense of community amongst its members.
I’d describe Christie Spaces as ‘a growing and inclusive community’ for businesses of every size. It wasn’t always this way. We were established in 1979 and earned our reputation as a highly successful conferencing and serviced office provider. In mid-2017, we recognised that people in business were increasingly searching for ways to connect on both personal and professional levels… the office environments we were providing needed to change.
So we came up with the perfect solution. We began transforming our existing commercial buildings in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, into state of the art, stylishly furbished co-working spaces. By focusing on creating inclusive communities right across the eastern seaboard of Australia, we’re now helping start-ups and businesses large and small to connect, engage and grow. As Christie Spaces’ National Brand Manager, it’s been exciting to watch how quickly this can happen once we facilitated the right environment.
Keen for change
Within each building there are some floors of traditional workspaces, some that are 100% co-working and others that are conferencing. We understand people’s needs are different, which is why we offer solutions to meet their ways of working.Some members working in the traditional spaces observe the sense of community evolving in co-working spaces, and are keen to make the move – even if they didn’t like the idea of doing so before. Others feel more comfortable in a traditional office space. It’s a matter of taste for our wide array of different members.
Co-working is a great way for people to share ideas and build connections. I really enjoy watching people from different businesses or different floors having lunch onsite, or getting to know each other at the regular events we host.
Many of our new members come via referral from existing members who love coming to work here, and our partners, who recognise our unique offering. In return for their referrals, we thank them via a generous referral rewards program.

Portside Christian College revolutionised and future-proofed its print environment, installing Canon multifunctional devices, a production print press and scanner, together with uniFLOW software.
When Redlands College rolled out mobile devices across the school, their innovative approach to teaching was met with unexpected challenges.

Rangitoto College focuses on putting together great teachers with great students. They strive to deliver a world class education experience by providing the right resources, facilities and the freedom to get on with learning. They wanted a technology partner who was able to share their vision, help them deliver the best learning experiences and provide pathways for future growth.
Albany Junior High School’s principal Stephen Kendall-Jones is proud of the future-focused and positive social environment his school offers. Being ‘future-focused’ is one of the reasons Canon were the perfect partner, bringing a solid understanding of education and state-of-the-art equipment together, to provide the ultimate learning experience for the students. Stephen believes that by providing an interactive, hands-on experience you can engage students at a deeper level.
Maintaining the highest standards in information management is important for any law firm. So when Arnold Bloch Leibler identified its email management/electronic filing project was as much a risk management task as an IT initiative, its partners were in full support.
