This confidential ‘Large Financial Organisation’ offers its clients world class investor services solutions with truly global reach and has a presence in 16 countries. With a reputation for being a young, dynamic organisation, the Medland Metropolis design team were appointed to deliver an office environment showcasing the Client’s brand identity and values whilst appealing to their employees.

This project was an exciting challenge for our inspired engineers. From the outset our team was heavily involved in the design process resulting in their ability to incorporate and present innovative ideas for the MEP services. In order to deliver on target, we ensured services were integrated at an early stage to meet the bespoke high quality requirements.

We incorporated technical solutions to develop the project’s vision. We achieve this by coordinating ceiling services to enhance the bespoke ceiling design and lighting design in the reception, client and staff breakout areas. The in-ceiling services were relocated ensuring the design was not impacted by access requirements.

The architect’s concept drew on inspiration from the streets of London, the team carefully chose fittings and fixtures that accentuated the overall design, including street lighting on corridors and mood lighting in meeting booths. We installed a DALI lighting control system for controllability and flexibility. The landlord luminaries were used in open plan areas and dimmed to eliminate reflection on screens. Additional luminaires were streamlined to allow for ease of future maintenance. A zoned lighting scheme was installed for energy efficiency and ease of use to cellular areas. Daylight harvesting was also incorporated to open plan office areas with the use of photocell sensors placed accordingly.
