01 THE CHALLENGE
Project Management & Consultancy team had a new challenge to prove a fitting sustainable design for BASF client. Sustainability and carbon footprint is becoming one of the top priorities for the tenants such as BASF when moving to new spaces or refreshing/reconstructing their offices. Designing an office is not anymore only about the right space plan and “nice design” but as well about the right choice of materials, with a big focus on the usage of those coming from renewable/sustainable resources. Reusage of existing technologies and materials like carpets, glass walls, ceilings, interior are as well important steps to lower BASFs' carbon footprint. Usage of biophilic elements in the interior help to improve air quality, creating an overall pleasant atmosphere and contributing with this to a better workplace experience.
02 THE SOLUTION
Designing the new office of BASF was not only about creating a suitable space based on “new normal principles,” such as the right number of workstations and meeting rooms, but also about sustainability and low carbon footprint, which have been on top of everyone`s mind. Around 150 sq m of glazed partitions, 350 sq m of carpets and vinyl floors, and wooden acoustic ceilings have been reused in this project. An original design prepared from Elastoflex E produced in Malacky is placed above the reception desk.
03 THE RESULTS
We are sure the new BASF space brings new energy, fosters collaboration amongst employees, and increases their satisfaction by providing a better workplace experience. Project Management & Consultancy team has applied smart solutions to create new sustainable designs.
