Overview

Completed in March 2016, this new office provides a flexible, agile solution to the wide ranging business falling under the Lloyd's Register umbrella.  With an accommodation solution that provides 122 desk positions on a non-territorial basis, a range of accommodation solutions have been provided in the office to create an agile environment with an offering of choice. This includes a number of bench style workstations, 120 degree workstations and sit-stand workstations in parallel with a variety of support collaboration spaces.

The project

Having moved from a cellularised office environment to an open plan  office environment, privacy has been reflected in the design of the new office through the creation of focus rooms, team rooms and phone booths within the back office area.

The front of house area provides a highly interactive solution to Lloyds’ staff and customers alike.  Comprising of a blue travertine reception floor, the initial impression is of an efficient yet elegant reception with an attention to detail and ultimately quality. This is then extended through a series of meeting room configurations across four rooms in a double glazed environment providing high levels of acoustic privacy.

The main meeting room accommodating 16 person is fitted out with a 82 inch flat screen and is partitioned adjacent to the staff café/social hub via a glazed hufcor operable wall allowing the opening up of this area for town halls and the like. The adjacent café provides seating for 40 persons through a combination of bench and circular table options, all with stunning views of the KLCC skyline.

Project outcome

The office was fitted out over seven weeks and the successful outcome of this project was borne in the close collaboration between ISG, its partners SW1 and MCE, the project manager Savills and the Client representative.
