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.
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 Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in offices. The health impacts of VOCs can include respiratory tract irritation, eye irritation, headaches, dizziness, visual disorders, and memory impairment.
