Standard Bank

 

During the Spring of 2010, Standard Bank embarked upon a complete reorganisation and refurbishment of their Jersey headquarters, Standard Bank House in La Motte Street.

The objectives of the project were to improve workplace efficiency, enhance the working environment for the company’s 300 staff and upgrade the reception area and client meeting suites.

In order to free up valuable work space on the upper floors, it was necessary to remove several high density storage systems. Style Office successfully planned and relocated over 1600 linear metres of Ecospace mobile shelving, rebuilding it on the ground floor in a new centralised storage area. The space created on the other floors was then used to re plan the working environment and reorganise working groups more efficiently. To further improve the use of space, Style Office supplied 100 new Steelcase TNT double wave workstations to replace outdated and inefficient corner core desks.

An outstanding feature of the reorganised building is the creation of a new staff cafeteria and rest area on the ground floor. This is a light and modern space with relaxing and dining facilities inside and outside on a new terrace area. Style Office supplied Italian cafeteria furniture from Arper in a black and white theme, with lounge chairs and stools from UK manufacturer Allermuir to complete this fantastic and well used facility.

The final phase of the project was the refurbishment of the reception area and client meeting suites. A bespoke reception desk was supplied and the waiting area furnished with armchairs from Orangebox. The client wanted a stylish and modern appearance to the meeting rooms and after visits to manufacturers showrooms in London, Style Office supplied furniture from German company Brunner with dark wood tables featuring slim profile tops and polished bases. Comfortable Spira conference chairs in reed coloured hide completed the transformation.

Paula le Moignan, Senior Facilities Manager for Standard Bank, commented “A lot of planning and hard work has gone into this project and we are delighted with our newly refurbished offices. We have worked with Style Office on a number of projects over the last 15 years and once again, they have delivered an excellent result.”
