LOC is an independent marine and engineering consultancy and survey organisation, providing high quality services to the shipping and offshore energy industries. LOC was established in London in 1979. Since then, they have developed into an international, multi-disciplinary organisation, with offices across the world.
The office design scheme Maris undertook for LOC Ltd comprised of open-plan desking arranged in the centre of the floor-plate. This is supplemented by informal meeting spaces, a tea-point, quiet rooms and a library for company books and documents. Adjoining the main work area is a group/collaboration zone and desking for company directors.
Located just off the reception is a meeting room suite and boardroom; these areas are supported by a large, spacious breakout space. This area comprises multi-level meeting and relaxing zones. Soft and low, dining height and bar height. This space can also be used for informal meetings, while its proximity to the meeting suite ensures maximum functionality to adjacent areas. The addition of the breakout area will hopefully create a ‘community feel’ in thee office and encourage collaboration, connection and socialising.
