Collaboration Centric Workplace for IPC Technology

The IPC global space team has really grasped the evolving affects COVID-19 is having on the future workplace and together we have created a workplace design that above all else, prioritises what employees feel they value most about an office after this forced period of working from home – collaboration.

Collaborative workspace enhances post-pandemic innovation

IPC is a technology and service leader that powers financial markets globally, providing products and services including unified communications, managed voice, data network and voice connectivity. With their brand focussed on innovation and community, we created a workspace that championed these values, designing and delivering a new space for their team that would give them better space to interact and geared up with integrated technology solutions to allow global connectivity.

Maximising communication for the post-pandemic workplace

The detailed planning of the space has strengthened communication and maximised agility which is integral to the technology lead organisation. Amongst each work area is an open collaboration space with information teamwork settings that further enhances flexibility and increases space usage. With sit-stand desking and additional individual workspaces such as high back sofas and concentration pods, both formal and informal work styles are catered for.

Enhancing exposure to natural light for employee wellbeing

Greenery features throughout the space, while the employee cafeteria capitalises on natural light and the surrounding views of Canary Wharf, creating an open and bright environment with flexible furniture options for a comfortable dining experience. Natural light in the workplace affects a number of health aspects like mood, sleep, vitamin D levels, and eye health–and it heightens productivity levels.

The overall result is a space that emphasises commitment to efficiency and digital experience, reinforcing IPC’s enterprising spirit. Embracing a brand-led approach, throughout the office is a consistent aesthetic style which reflects the IPC corporate branding.
