Project Scope

Ernst and Young were moving to a new building, 200 George Street, Sydney, where 3000 staff were undergoing activity-based working in a fabulous new environment.

The problem was with this great new way of working it would bring a new challenge to staff. They weren’t sitting in their familiar desks, with their colleagues around them each and every day. Each day they would go to a different area, and sit wherever they felt like it. The EY Communications Team wanted to create a site that staff could go to from any device, and find out information about this new way of working in this fabulous new building.

Web Vine ran workshops with EY, to determine what kind of information staff would need to access in this new work environment. They worked out the information architecture for the new site, and also assisted with the design and created a responsive SharePoint online intranet for EY.

We took into account the different types of people that would need to access the site, the various information they needed to get to, and how likely they were to be on different devices, such as tablets and mobile phones, in this new working environment.


3000 staff moved in to 200 George Street, the new activity-based working environment of EY, in Sydney. They’re able to access information at their fingertips from any device in a sleek looking new SharePoint Online intranet.

This offers tremendous value to the organisation, meaning that staff are less confused about what to do, how to work, where to go, and how to get things done such as printing documents if they really needed to, how to organize meetings, how to book a room, where to find their colleagues, how to access their lockers, and many other valuable things.

It was a very successful outcome for EY.
