Buildings and Workplace Design

Buildings and Workplace Design

MAP understands the workplace environment from the master planning of an office complex to the façade design of the buildings, to the interior fitting out of the entrance lobby, lift cars and workplace.

New communications technologies are changing the ways people work and major corporations are moving to flexible workplace strategies which require fundamental design changes such as:

  • Reduction in private offices
  • Shared work stations with locker spaces for individual workers
  • Linear bench desk configuration for maximum head count
  • Grouped meeting rooms with internal online booking systems
  • Expanded pantry areas to encourage collaboration and communication
  • Chilled beam ceiling systems for increased thermal comfort and a quiet environment
  • Decrease in local document storage and increased centralised filing

MAP designs to ensure the company culture is reflected from the entry experience through the common areas and the individual workspace. A successful design strategy will encourage collaboration, productivity, innovation and communication.

The life cycle costs and the capital investment is always taken into consideration in a MAP design. Each value engineering solution is tailored to each owner and the MAP process is to investigate all options and empower the owner to make the best decision.

MAP has completed projects for Sun Hung Kai Properties, HSBC, Hang Seng Bank and Yuan Yi and has worked as a lead consultant for Henderson Land.
