Amber Infrastructure Group
With over 100 global executives and over £8bn of investment in 8 different countries it was imperative for infrastructure investment company Amber to have a modern and functional HQ in London. With modern offices in San Francisco and Edinburgh their existing London office was in need of updating.
Previously spread across 3 different floors of an office building Amber were looking for a new space that would allow their team to be able to work on one floor, offering a greater working cohesion. They found an amazing location on the bank of the river Thames at a new development called 3 More London.
With over 1000m2 of floor space it was important that there was a good mix of style and practicality. After several workshops they opted for a Desso Traverse carpet tile in the main open plan office space and general meeting rooms. A more practical approach to the main reception and modern kitchen area saw the introduction of Oak engineered flooring by global timber supplier Havwoods.
The timber flooring continued throughout the boardroom and management suites with clean lines complementing the Walnut veneered wall panelling. To help with the acoustics and to soften these areas a mix of grey Milliken carpet tiles were installed into sunken recesses in the middle of the rooms giving the impression of luxurious rugs laid on the floor. The softer colours worked great with the grey neutral colours of the walls and contemporary furniture.
The floor installation was completed over a 2 week period to a very tight programme. To enable other trades to complete their works the timber flooring was installed out of hours with the team starting at 6pm and working through the night until the site re-opened at 7:30am.
“This was a very challenging project due to tight timescales, out of hours working and coordination with following trades. Great team work across the project was needed.” Rob Bell Project Manager
