    Fuji Xerox told ZDNet Australia that this front wall and the side walls are heritage listed, and cannot be changed. The building itself, however, is dramatically different on the inside to how it was in the 1930s when it was built.

    The funky, colourful reception area: Fuji Xerox has made sure that everything down to the carpets and desks are made out of recycled materials in order to promote the facility's green image. The building is managed by an intelligent system that sips power and even uses carbon dioxide detectors to sense how many people are around. It subsequently compensates with the building's air conditioning system to pump fresh, conditioned air into the rooms with people in them.
