Successfully creating an agile workplace for HSBC with double glazed screens

HSBC’s HQ is fitted with an emphasis on agility and technology-friendly environments within Dubai’s International Financial Centre (DIFC). Moreover, the international banking giant chose us for our partitioning and glazing solutions. That is to say, our double glazed screens and doors deliver seamless and elegant quality, with robust design and impeccable service.

Starting from the ground up

The new office sees staff relocated from Emaar Square into a 13,000 sq ft. workplace. Located on level 1 of Gate Village 8, a more collaborative style of working is encouraged. Firstly, architect AAID provided a design which promotes agility and creates multiple settings in the working environment.

Where we begin… 

Our partitions were used to create a balance between open plan break-out areas, quiet spaces – such as enclosed offices, meeting rooms and strategy rooms. Consequently, this provided privacy without compromising an agile working agenda. Above all, offering exceptional acoustic performance with our range of single and double glazed screens. This included Revolution 54 in a custom finish and black tinted glass. Furthermore, this helped create secure areas which can be used for sensitive or confidential discussions.

Changing times

Agile working is fast becoming the norm for global organisations. As a result, HSBC used our double glazed screens to help to create an environment which fosters collaboration and communication. Subsequently, giving employees the freedom and flexibility to work in different areas of an office.

In conclusion, commenting on the project Lee Bazzoni, our Director of Construction said: “Having successfully delivered a number of exemplary projects for HSBC in the UAE region, we are looking forward to rolling out this workplace template and working with them on the next project, their new 14 storey headquarters.”
