INPEX Corporation is a long-established Japanese oil company with over 2000 employees globally. Working closely with Inpex’s appointed Project Manager Nik Denman and Louise Coombes from the Jones London (our chosen designer on this project), we arrived at a design that fitted the client’s day-to-day requirements and reflected their international branding. A substantial amount of the client’s existing furniture was used, with new pieces added sympathetically to enhance the overall effect.
Inpex chose space with a previous tenant’s rather dated fitout in place. Whilst freshly-refurbished space is an easy starting point, we always enjoy responding to the challenges of second hand space and budget restrictions. Existing DALI lighting functionality restored and partitions’ layout was remodelled and relocated. Video conferencing facilities are an important part of the day to day function of the office and this element required special attention when considering acoustics and visual dynamics.
An intense design development and client liaison period before works on site started, allowed JT3 to provide Inpex with a great result on a restricted budget, against a tight timetable.
