Aubin Group design, develop and supply chemical solutions and enabling materials technology to the global oil and gas industry. They required a refurbishment of their existing office in Ellon. JAM Studio’s brief involved the complete redesign of the open plan office areas to create an improved acoustically performing workplace. The footprint of the office was re-planned to provide additional meeting rooms and quiet spaces. Aubin’s bold colour scheme is reflected in the panelling, carpet, furniture and manifestation choices throughout the office refurbishment. An industrial take on the traditional suspended ceiling uses linear LED lighting to light workspaces, with feature pendants for circulation. The finished look is modern, sharp and striking whilst emphasising the corporate colour scheme.
Working as a specialist sub-contractor to Morrison Construction, we used Optima 117 single glazed partitioning with glass doors in Microflush Frames to create the offices and meeting spaces. The white framework provides an excellent neutral base for the bold colour scheme, with 40mm head tracks installed to provide a seamless top line around the partition head. The result is a stunning visual success, and with the colours reflected through in to the manifestations applied to the glass to complete the look. The seamless appearance of the glass to glass joints was created with Optima’s patented NebulaTM in-line joint.
To achieve the “industrial” feel for the ceilings, we used British Gypsum Gyptone Quattro 41 panels with cut outs for LED lights hung in rafts with blacked out soffits and services above. To contribute to the Acoustic performance of the room and add splashes of colour we installed Soundhush Sushliner Acoustic Wall Panels. The crisp, modern finish was achieved by close quality control, highly trained and skilled installers, and attention to detail on every product we used.
