Yokogawa Headquarters in Moscow
Gint-M has completed the delivery of headquarters for the international company Yokogawa in Moscow. The 2,600-sqm facility is accommodated at the fourth floor level of Novion office center at 1 Samarskaya str. The decision to move to a new office is caused by the company’s desire to create a working environment meeting modern safety requirements and business environment standards. The team of Gint-M has developed detailed design documentation and carried out a full range of general construction works including the design of MEP systems.
Iokogawa Electric CIS would like to express its profound gratitude and thank the building contractor United Contractors Gint-M, LLC for professional implementation of Iokogawa’s Headquarters in Moscow.
The 2,600-sqm office is accommodated at the fourth floor level of NOVION BC at 1 Samarskaya str.
The Headquarters of Yokogawa in Moscow is designed for 280 personnel, representing roomy open space with meeting rooms and walled offices of various purpose included therein. Here you can find 11 meeting zones seating 4-10 people, with two large meeting rooms easily transformed into one common space thanks to a transformable partition. There are five walled offices for the top management while the meeting room adjoining the office of Yokogawa boss may host video conferences and meetings with the company’s world offices involved.
Two kitchens are also present: a smaller one for the top management and a roomy one with a dining zone for employees. Represented here are also two relaxation rooms with eye-catching informal furniture: here you may have a cup of coffee, communicate with your colleagues or answer a personal phone call.
The open space landscape is zoned into sections divided by meeting spaces, phone booths or partitions. The office is centered on a pass-through atrium permeating all floors of the office building.
The office is designed in calm neutral hues which make this space balanced and comfortable for work. Standing out against this pastel background is the reception zone with a bright yellow ceiling from acoustic strips of wood, the company’s logo cut thereon. Yet salient color accents are also present in many parts of the workspace, even if in a measured way – e.g. blue partitions in some office zones set off the tranquil color scheme of the entire interior.
“Yokogawa pays special attention to safety issues: hence fireproof double-glass partitions set up along the entire escape “route” as a response to fires or other emergencies. These are capable to withstand open fire at least for half an hour. The given solution will allow all employees to leave the office without any panic, should they hear an alarm signal,” says Business Development Director of Gint-M Artem Panteleev, commenting on the project specifics.
