This contract is the biggest and most complex in our history. It represents one of the most forward thinking and employee centric design schemes that we’ve ever worked on. A number of areas were specifically designed to facilitate greater staff collaboration and informal meetings in open spaces, fitted out with high quality furniture which, quite simply, helps employees feel at ease and comfortable in their working environment.
The project required the delivery of 38 shipments of office furniture by 40ft shipping containers over a four-month time frame. The innovative design solution spanning six floors included height adjustable desks, sociable workspaces, focus zones, break-out areas, lab spaces, enclave booths, flexible training spaces,
kitchen areas and an on-site cafe.
The new office space reflects the local needs of a forward thinking, dynamic IT firm, while sitting comfortably with Allstate’s global head office in Chicago. 1080 worked in tandem with award winning multi-disciplinary design practice, WDR & RT Taggart, the main contractors O’Hare & McGovern and Universal Business Installations to co-ordinate the complex installation. Allstate is a great business asset for the Northern Ireland economy and we are delighted to have been such an integral part of the project.
