Maersk’s new office space in Maidenhead has recently won a prestigious British Council for Offices (BCO) Regional Award for Best Workplace Fit out.
TASK were delighted to be part of the exceptional project and wish to congratulate all who were involved in this innovative workplace fit out!
"With high levels of daylight, well located refreshment areas, high quality catering, sit-stand desks as standard and a spacious ground floor staff area, Maersk’s workspace at The Point clearly has the wellbeing of employees at its centre."
- Richard Kauntze, chief executive of the BCO
On May 4 2017, the Danish global shipping company received public recognition for its new office space in the heart of Maidenhead, winning the regional BCO ‘Fit out of Workplace’ award for the South of England and South Wales.
The British Council for Offices (BCO) Awards Programme recognises high quality developments that set the benchmark for excellence in the office sector and are widely respected within the commercial property sector.
The new fit out was highly praised by the BCO judging panel for opening up the office space to maximise natural light while simultaneously offering countryside views to all employees. The judges were impressed by the
“use of high quality natural materials and an understated palette of colours that reflect company branding throughout to achieve a subtle Nordic feel.”
We were delighted to be involved in this exciting project and worked closely with award-winning architectural and interior design practice, 2M2 Studio on the interior fit out.
TASK supplied special size sit-stand benches with raw steel cable trays designed to Maersk’s requirement. Ply core tops completed the look. These bespoke TASK workstations complement the striking metal elements of the interior while allowing maximum flexibility in the working environment to enhance employee comfort and performance. The custom-made lockers, designed by 2M2 Studio, reflect the company brand colour palette and divide zones within the office environment to achieve an efficient working space.
For the Executive offices, FENIX credenzas and sit-stand desks with FENIX tops on a plywood core were tailor-made to suit the space. The credenzas also served as ingenious containment for the cable management for the adjoining sit-stand desks.
The ergonomic performance of the STICK swivel chair from ICF, chosen for the Executive offices, made it a perfect choice for a workplace that demonstrates excellence in office space.
TASK wish to congratulate all who were involved in the new workplace fit out for Maersk, as well as all of the other BCO winners. All the regional winners will now be entered in to the National BCO Awards which will take place in October 2017.
