An office building must have flexible and technologically-advanced working environments that are safe, healthy, comfortable, durable, aesthetically-pleasing and accessible. It must be able to accommodate the specific space and equipment needs of the tenant. Special attention should be made to the selection of lighting, air conditioning and ventilation to provide a comfortable working environment as well precise control to set-back these requirements when the offices are unoccupied in lower the carbon footprint and save energy. Technology has become an indispensable tool for business. Given that technology is driving a variety of changes in the organizational and architectural forms of office buildings, consider new office buildings are equipped with a distributed, robust, and flexible IT infrastructure, which would allow technological access in virtually all the spaces.
Offices are invariably equipped with additional spaces such as conference rooms, lobbies, atria, cafeteria and chill out spaces toilets, car parking facilities and sometimes also physical fitness areas and childcare facilities.
To achieve the optimum performance for the investment in the facility, value engineering provides a means for assessing the performance versus cost of each design element and building component. From the design phase building development, properly applied value engineering considers alternative design solutions to optimize the expected cost/worth ratio of projects at completion.
We are very strong in this field having designed a number of Corporate buildings such as BOV Head Office, Malta Financial Services Authority, Farsons Logistics Centre, Ewropa Centre, Capital Business Centre, and a host of bank branches and other office complexes of smaller size.
