Skandia UK is based within three buildings in Southampton City Centre. The senior management at Skandia recognised the need to re-asses and update the buildings. Seam Muskett - Head of Skandias Organisational Development said " the buildings looked tired, internal decor hadn't been refreshed for a number of years, and didn't reflect the dynamic, forward-thinking organisation within."
Offices at Scandia were previously allocated by status. The refurb now allocates offices by function instead of hierarchy.
The single and double glazed Polar partitioning creates segregated office and meeting areas with banded manifestation to create an amount of privacy, yet not alienate the staff outside.
The fully glazed partitioning refreshes the decor with minimalist lines and allows natural light to permeate through the whole office space.
