Corporate Real Estate Manager – Sun Life Financial
While the Sun Life Financial offices are located in Waterford and we worked with the local team we also had to feed all communications through to representatives in their head office in the USA. To win this contract we were up against invited international competitors, whom we met at the ‘viewings of mock-up and presentation’ stages. It was essential to Sun Life Financial that they could work with one supplier to satisfy all of their furniture requirements from workstations and seating through to canteen, breakout and meeting areas. Another key consideration was product continuity for further future development.
On award of the contract we worked very closely with the Interior Designer in the States. Challenges we faced were in sourcing fabrics and finishes more accustomed to the client in the USA. We were able to provide Sun Life Financial with bench workstations which were both rigid and strong and had the flexibility of shared components. In fact, the system that was finally chosen was decided on because it could be adapted and customised to meet the client’s diverse requirements.
The full project comprising of work spaces for 400 employees, meeting spaces, canteen and breakout areas was delivered and installed as to agreed dates over two phases in February and March 2015.
