Introduction

Despite a really tight programme, ISG fitted out an office for Lloyd’s Register in only seven weeks during the Chinese New Year period. The fit out saw the creation of an elegant reception area, focus rooms, team rooms, phone booths within the general office area, cafeteria and a four meeting suites equipped with advanced technology solutions and high-levels of acoustic privacy. The 15,000 sq ft office provides an agile, open and transparent activity-based workplace with diverse space settings that are multi-functional and able to support various tasks delivered by a diverse business.

The project

The front of house area provides a professional and inviting environment for employees, visitors and customers alike. The first impression reflects a professional and premium personality of the business through high-quality finishes and high-level of details. This is then extended through a series of meeting rooms in different configurations providing high-levels of acoustic privacy. The adjacent collaborative area provides seating for 40 persons through a combination of work benches and other seating formats - boasting stunning views of the KLCC skyline. The outcome of the fast-tracked fit out achieved a quality, functional and collaborative work environment that achieved our customer's expectations and beyond.

Project outcome

The office was fitted out over seven weeks and the successful outcome of this project was a result of our close collaboration between our team, external consultants, the project manager Savills and the client representative. 80 percent of the materials and resources procured for the project was locally produced and sourced. This resulted to a very cost-effective project outcome with a shorter lead time up to the point of delivery - and ultimately reduced environmental impact.
