January 11, 2017 – Beirut, Lebanon
SYSPRO, an ITG company, and a provider of high-end smart building & office solutions, finalized an agreement with Bankmed to supply and install the raised floor, false ceiling and partitions of their new Headquarters offices in Mina El Hosn, Beirut.
Bankmed, one of Lebanon’s leading banks, was looking to have a state-of-the-art and practical office environment for its employees. The current trend in office solutions is to have a modern and flexible system that enables space re-arrangement with minimum time and cost impact, with a low maintenance cost.
SYSPRO was able to propose a complete integrated system from AVC Gemino. The solution's main interrelated components are the ceiling, partitions and raised flooring systems. The project covers 3 interconnected office pavilions, from floor 2 to 17.
The main feature of the ceiling is its structure, which allows the integrations of several components including lighting, air diffusers, partitions, doors and a fully accessible acoustical metal ceiling panel system. The structure enables the layout combinations that Bankmed wishes to implement.
The partitions are available in different typologies such as glazed, wood, plasterboard etc…., offering respectively a continuously transparent unobstructed view of the office floor, while providing privacy where needed.
The choice for the doors may be sliding or pivot depending on space requirements. Both options have acoustic and aesthetic properties.
The raised floor provides accessibility underneath for full flexibility with regards to the re-distribution of offices. It may be accessed from a technical channel, should any modification be required.
The system suited Bankmed’s needs in terms of performance and functionality, while offering pleasant aesthetics in design elements. SYSPRO’s team was recognized for the technical knowledge and the ability to provide a solution for every architectural detail that was proposed.
BANKMED’s new Headquarters will become a landmark in Beirut, providing an innovative, stimulating and practical work environment for employees, executives and the bank’s customers.
The headquarters' design was conceived to blend with the city urban fabric, and to foster a new sense of vibrancy and life within Clemenceau. The scope of work of SYSPRO is scheduled to start during 2017.
“Implementing SYSPRO’s integrated office partitioning system, in BANKMED’s new headquarters, which is designed by a UK architectural firm, will raise the standard and pave the way for many new projects in the area of smart office solutions”, said Mr. Jawad Korban, General Manager of SYSPRO.
BANKMED has grown to become among Lebanon’s leading banks. Through its 64 branches in Lebanon, BANKMED offers a wide range of innovative products and quality banking services tailored to individuals’ and corporations’ needs.
