Symantec is the world’s leading cyber security company, allowing organizations, governments, and people to secure their data wherever stored.
Collaboration was appointed to design the interior for Symantec’s new office on the fourth floor of Gateway House, Century City, Cape Town.
As Symantec is a multinational organisation, Collaboration had to adhere to the stringent design criteria set out for security within the design of the office layout. This was achieved through careful planning of the layout and detailing of all interior elements, like ceilings, walls, glazing, doors and floors. This was to ensure that each security compartment within the layout was acoustically sealed so as not to allow any information breaches between the various security teared departments.
Ergonomics was key in the design, and selection of the furniture throughout the installation was to comply with Symantec international standards. This was achieved through the use of height adjustable workstations that allows for movement of the employees during the course of their working hours.
As technology was a key part of the brief, video conferencing technology was incorporated in all meeting and training rooms to allow for global communication.
The layout consists of open plan working areas; meeting and training rooms; informal meeting spaces and a staff pause area which could also be used as an informal meeting space.
