The ABC Environments Project
When ABC Environments purchased a new three storey office building in Cheshire. ABC’s in house design team wanted an office interior that would incorporate brand identity, and expand on their open-plan theme.
Komfort has helped create a unique work environment spanning 11,366 sq. ft. that promotes morale and team-based working thanks to the innovative use of its partitioning products.
The Brief in Brief
One of the outstanding design features is the central fins, which uses full height glazed partitions to create a stand-alone element ideal for casual meetings, and to display items of furniture. The clear glass was installed with opaque manifestations with ABC’s corporate branding and these were further enhanced by floor receded LED lights.
Attention to detail was imperative throughout, and Komfort supplied seven different manifestations designed to further enhance and encourage staff morale and incorporate ABC’s brand colours of white and green.
After consultations with Komfort, the decision was taken to install single glazed Polar that ran the full floor to ceiling height to maximise light and space.
Komfort’s inspirational design and meticulous attention to detail achieved a unique open plan solution to boost team morale and corporate image.
Silicon joints were used to further minimise the impact of the glass partitioning whilst the inclusion of sliding and pivot doors offered less intrusion into the available space. The glazing framework had to be subtle and not intrude into the open-plan space therefore ABC specified base tracks coloured to a specific RAL code that matched the carpet.
For areas that required more practical applications, Komfort’s KomStore storage wall was installed with a white MFC finish to provide streamlined and discreet storage space. Full height veneered doors were used in the entrances and hallways to carry on the hi-spec theme throughout the building.
The end result
Phil Tantum at ABC said: “The inclusion of Komfort’s partitioning system allowed us to accomplish our goal of delivering an environment that was stylish but most of all worked to benefit the staff, whether through meeting spaces, private offices or simply a relaxing breakout space. The attention to detail throughout all aspects of the build was second to none and the addition of elements such as LED lighting only served to emphasise the stunning effect of the partitioning.” ABC Environments specialise in the management of fit-outs or refurbishment of commercial premises. They create tailored environments that efficiently utilise space in order to provide effective and unique workplaces.
