New interior for RDC Dundee

In May 2016, Samuel Bruce Business Furniture originally from Dundee provided at the Regional Development Center or RDC with a brand new office interior over three floors, a total of 18.000 sqFT  laboratory surface 16.000 sqFT office space. In conjuntion with Office Fit Out Scotland the accomodation has been completely renovated and refurbished.

Interior design

Per floor the open-plan office areas and laboratories are positioned in one line and facilitate aproximately 55 work stations. Important considerations in the interior design were the achievement of a sufficient number of smaller and larger meeting rooms, equipped with telephone conference equipment and smart boards, projectors, as well as social corners, to enable the new way of working. These facilities are evenly spread across the floors. Laboratories are divided into typical logistic areas, conveniently located close to the lift, specific lab space and associated facilities. Typical of the atmosphere is a combination of different color palettes per floor, referring to the specific product development work (by product category) that is going on. At the same time, there are areas with the same color palette for all floors (HPC identity). Both Office areas as well as the laboratories will receive product-specific artistic decorations, which at the time of the interior photography were not yet available; These decorations complement the interior design and strengthen the product category identity even more.

Office furniture Still not ready during this photo shoot are the work on the internal ‘ main entrance ‘ of the RDC. Here is a selection of attractive and inspiring functionalities introduced, ranging from a products zone, with both products on glass shelves along the walls as well as stand alone product units, around a Board style and a coffee bar. In addition, there are several informal seating and relaxation zones created, with attractive coloured furniture, both seats as high tables with stools, lower and higher ceiling areas, typical product lighting, interspersed with hanging lamps, etc. dark (vinyl) wooden floor finish and dark ceiling. This zone is located on the second floor in the adjescent building and also in line with a new central meeting area (6 meeting rooms) for general use. The architect who has developed the concept is Nick Rennick. The engineering and implementation was done by BAM Buildings services, and technology.
