Jardine Engineering Corporation

Planning of the JEC premises had to incorporate no less than fifteen operational divisions, many of which had conflicting needs to those of the others.

In the end, this jigsaw puzzle was resolved around a common entrance at the entry to the floorplate, where there is immediate access to a series of small and medium sized conference rooms with an electronic booking system, as well as to a tripartite boardroom which can be quickly sub-divided into 2-3 rooms or reconfigured again to seat anywhere from 24-48 people.

Materials and finishes were sourced, vastly, from the JEC stable of manufacturers and suppliers, including raised floors, carpet tiles, lighting and bespoke finishes such as the bare concrete screed at the main entrance which is contrasted with smooth glass finishes in the reception counter itself.

In a nod to their long history in Hong Kong, a tiny black and white streetscape photograph showing the first JEC office in the territory was enlarged to life size and adhered, in sections, to the central filing unit opposite the boardroom, seen in the photographs looking through the numbered doors to the compactus outside.
