New Interior for Agilent Technologies UK Ltd
Michael Laird Architects have been appointed by Agilent Technologies UK Ltd to design their new Edinburgh office at 4-5 Lochside Avenue, Edinburgh Park.
MLA have been working closely with the Client and the Consultant team to design a functional, flexible and inspirational workplace environment intended to foster communication and creativity between the various departments. As well as accommodating 150 staff in 26,000 square feet over two floors, the proposals also include a client reception area with adjacent meeting room suite and coffee lounge providing a variety of further workplace and meeting settings.
A sustainable approach by all parties from the outset of the project, and good working relationships with the fit-out contractor and furniture suppliers, has enabled the re-use and partial recycling of many items from Agilent’s existing premises such as workstations, partitions, seating, raised flooring and doors.
The project is due for completion in Summer 2010.
