British Standards Institute
British Standards Institute (BSI) is the business standards company that helps organisations make excellence a habit – all over the world.
Their European Headquarters in Chiswick host the BSI standards committee meetings as well as regular board meetings. Commercial Interiors were tasked by BSI to fully redesign their G1 Theatre, a dated and semi flexible space for meetings of up to 60 people. Poor acoustics meant conference calls were all but impossible. After a full design process and competitive tender, Commercial interiors were awarded the refurbishment fit out and new furniture package.
Stripping out of the original wood panelled ceiling tiles, and installing brand new floor coverings made a huge visual difference. A bespoke ceiling raft system was designed to improve acoustics, and incorporated 142 individual baffles. Added to this, the installation of a brand new furniture system, a 6 metre wide solid surface topped servery area and a new AV
solution brought about a stunning change and an increase in capacity to over 100 people.
