Working closely with HSBC as MEP (Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing) engineers, we helped relocate their Indonesian head office to two sites across Jakarta, whilst completing professional office fitouts that maximise the comfort of their staff.
With the rental agreement at their existing location soon expiring, HSBC’s global banking committee engaged Beca to successfully relocate their Indonesian head office operations to two new sites across metropolitan Jakarta within a tight 6-month timeframe. These two new sites at World Trade Centre 3 (WTC3) and Cilandak Business Park (CIBIS) cover 14,000 SQM of office space with the capacity to comfortably house 1,000 staff.
By closely following their GESM (Global Engineering Standard Manual) and a standard gateway approval process, we were able to overcome limitations within Indonesia’s building code, regarding fresh air requirements – by working directly with suppliers and contractors.
This was achieved by adding 50 standalone energy efficient air conditioning units (VRF) to their WTC3 site, in addition to the air conditioning system the landlord had already provided – a vital component given Indonesia’s humid, tropical climate.
Other standout features of the fitout we led include 2 Secondary Electrical Rooms (SERs) per floor at WTC3 and 2 for the entire CIBIS site. Staff at both locations will also benefit from high-tech meeting rooms, open plan office space, wet pantries and dedicated musholla (prayer) rooms.
Energy efficiency is maximised through the use of movement sensors to control lighting, VAV (Variable Air Volume) for the existing air conditioning systems and the highly efficient VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) units we added to WTC3.
With these office fitouts now complete, performance testing successfully passed and staff relocated in controlled phases, HSBC is ready to serve this exciting growth market for years to come!
