From a rigorous tender process, the Institution of Civil Engineers (or ICE for short) chose Hunters in partnership with the Senator Group to help them relocate to their new offices in Westminster.
Working closely with the facilities and project team, we designed a standard model for their workspace so each floor promoted the matching impression of a modern organisation set within a rich historical environment.
One of ICE’s major concerns was how to manage their substantial wiring and cabling. The Senator Core benching system addressed this problem; allowing for large amounts of cabling to be housed and fed from the perimeter walls. Furthermore, by employing Bisley’s Note slimline pedestals and Humanscale CPU200 unit holders, we were able to reduce the desk footprint to 1200mm which increased office space utilisation and maximised leg room.
To individualise the floors for clients and staff members, we offered unique meeting room furniture, plus breakout area seating and tables from Allemuir’s Open and Conic ranges. The soft seatings’ Alpine colour pallette and deep plush shape contrasted with the thin, geometric steel-rod base, presenting a beautiful piece of engineering while also providing staff a comfortable place to reside while reading from the new library space.
ICE were delighted with their stunning new workplace and its presentation of the inspiration, innovation and prestige that lies at the very heart of the Civil Engineering industry.
