The 4,400-sqft office features meeting rooms named after Singapore’s historic landmarks and locations.
Construction firm ISG has relocated its Singapre business division to a new space on the first floor of Haw Par Centre within the Dhoby Ghaut vicinity, providing workstations, along with a hotdesking area, for over 60 employees.
ISG in Singapore was formerly housed within a two-storey shophouse along Lorong Telok since 1999 and made the decision to move its team to the new space to break free from its disconnected and traditional workplace.
The new 4,400-sqft office features a mix of private and open spaces to accommodate the needs of each individual employee and provides flexibility in choosing where and how they work. Apart from the general office area, the office fit out also comprises a pantry, a boardroom with video conferencing capability and interactive display, and two six-person meeting rooms which can be converted into a town hall space along with two phone booths.
In addition, emblazoned across the glass partitions of each meeting room are kinetic lines which are said to reflect the dynamic nature of ISG’s business whilst offering partial privacy for meetings. Each room was named after Singapore’s historic landmarks and locations, such as Istana, Fort Canning, Merlion, Esplanade and Sentosa.
“At the heart of the design is our aspiration to create an office that truly reflects the very same outcomes we have conceived recently for our clients. We are a fit out specialist in workplace and we would like our office to showcase the work we do, quality of work we deliver, and how we are able to mirror similar outcomes for their projects,” Steve Ramsden, ISG’s managing director for Southeast Asia and Middle East, said.
In terms of promoting the sustainability agenda through its business operations, the office’s design incorporated measures such as fitting its meeting rooms with motion-sensor lighting, and recycling bins stationed at its utilities area.
“Air conditioning is automatically switched off at 6 p.m., which also encourages staff to leave work on time for their wellbeing,” Ramsden added.
