Optima creates a stunning design for UAE’s best treasury department

First Gulf Bank (FGB) selected Optima, leading designers of glass partitioning solutions, to deliver a remarkable installation for FGB’s new Treasury offices. FGB’s Treasury is the leading department in its field, with global experts providing corporate and individual clients with a variety of products and solutions tailored to their investment needs. This world-class company has undergone recent expansion as a result of high business growth in the Gulf region. FGB therefore desired a commercial office design which reinforced its position as one of the top investment banks in the world.

Leading consultants AAID took control of the project from its design through to construction. When it came to glass partitioning, Optima’s Revolution 100 double glazed system was chosen for its impressive visual aesthetics and its ability to deliver market-leading acoustic performance. The dry jointed system is available in single or double glazed form, depending upon the level of acoustic control required. Optima successfully created and installed a system which met both the visual and acoustic needs of FBG. The joinery was also made to measure, where this bespoke quality gave an extra touch of sophistication to the project.

The glass partitions were intersected with a series of bespoke rich timber or stone planes containing an innovative LED ticker tape, allowing Treasury employees to share stock market data. LED lighting was a consistent feature in corridors and reception areas.

Optima’s glass partitions were selected for their clean, seamless aesthetics and for their acoustic control. The end result is a stunning and innovative work space which expertly showcases FGB as a rapidly expanding global powerhouse.
