Office Interiors specialists Morgan Lovell have completed a sustainable fit out for leading dermatology company Stiefel Laboratories (UK), at their Eurasian headquarters.
Under a design and build contract, the inspirational office space was designed, tendered and delivered in just 19 weeks.
Morgan Lovell utilised its green office expertise to deliver a Very Good BREEAM rating for the Maidenhead development, creating a tailored specification combining quality and durability with sustainability.
The sustainable fit out across 38,000 square feet has been designed to deliver financial incentives too, with a payback period of less than 10 years.
Morgan Lovell’s Southern office, located in Wokingham, carried out the project, with BREEAM and LEED accredited designer Adrian Norman overseeing the work.
Combining a wealth of high technology features, stylish design and functionality, the new office reflects the dynamic values of Stiefel – a leading force in dermatology around the world.
A spacious feel is evident throughout. At the design stage, careful consideration was given to individual space standards to create an optimum working environment, coupled with staff accessing as much natural light as possible.
A spokesperson for Stiefel said: “In the UK, Stiefel had been operating from two separate sites, an R&D office in Cookham in Berkshire and a Commercial office in Wooburn Green in Buckinghamshire. The leases on both buildings were due to expire so we knew that at some point it would make sense to consolidate the two sites and we decided to relocate our employees to Maidenhead.
“We had just six months to complete the new offices and to move out of our existing premises. The design and build nature of the works with Morgan Lovell really helped us to achieve this tight timeframe.
“Staff involvement was critical to ensure a successful outcome. We held regular meetings to discuss the new offices and made good use of Morgan Lovell’s dedicated Stiefel intranet site to show plans, visuals and other design features of the development to employees on a regular basis.
“The consolidation of the sites was managed in two moves and staff have been delighted with the new facility”.
Visitors and staff to the new office are introduced to the company via a main reception area, featuring high gloss black glass panels containing the Stiefel company logo, with a flat plasma screen incorporated, creating a sleek, contemporary finish.
The centre piece of the development is the staff restaurant and break out area, an uplifting space, which makes the best use of natural light from the atrium at its centre.
Including a full servery and flexible use of the facilities to deliver room for meetings when required, the whole area has been designed to appeal as a popular space, where different departments in the company can come together.
Throughout the building, graphics depicting Stiefel’s work in dermatology are used to illustrate the company’s innovative approach, and colours in-keeping with the Stiefel brand are used across all three floors.
Sustainable features include A Rated products throughout, such as floor coverings, partitions and ceilings. Furniture was carefully chosen for its environmental credentials, including Herman Miller chairs and Steelcase desking.
High-end video conferencing has also been introduced to increase communication and reduced travel among company executives.
