Leading International Insurer Creates A Leading Hybrid Workspace

a case study

This project with a leading International Insurer is one that truly excited us when we were confirmed as the successful tenderer for their office reconfiguration in mid-2021.

The brief required a blended approach of technology and furniture with the goal to ensure an inviting and effective hybrid workspace for their team once Covid-19 restrictions lift.

Cloud based Desk and Meeting Space Booking System

As part of our re-design, we reduced the number of desks, implemented a cloud-based desk and meeting space booking system to support the open desk policy now implemented whilst also focusing on increasing the number of collaboration and meeting spaces.

Space Planning

We delved into the detail and identified a wide variety of solutions to ensure a successful project outcome, starting with space planning and reconfiguration to ensure the optimum number of desks were available, removing all cellular offices and bringing everyone together in the open-plan, enabling us to re-use the cellular offices for collaboration and private meeting spaces.

Acoustics and Acoustic Management

Acoustics played a key role here as it was critical to ensure that the meeting spaces were functional and absorbed the noise that is all too common in workspaces. Scala wall panels by Abstracta, combined with dB Pillars were used throughout the formal meeting rooms and boardroom, the focus being their functionality and muted style as opposed to being a feature in the space.

Biophilia – Integrating Nature into the design

Biophilia was a strong focus to add that homely feel and a nod to nature, along with bringing warmth and atmosphere using a variety of textured materials on the loose furniture.

Desk Based Technology and Ergonomics

On-desk power charge devices were installed on all desks to enable charging of personal devices and Humanscale’s Eco-stand was used as a retro-fit solution to a bay of desks to offer a sit-stand option for the team when working in the office.

Working as part of a fantastic project team with other Irish Contractors, this is a project we are proud of and gave us the opportunity to demonstrate the complete turn-key solution we offer our clients.
