This international Oil and Gas client desired a showcase space for their American headquarters. The design emulated the industry by incorporating earth tones, natural stones and a series of black lines that mimic sedimentary layers. Since natural light was a priority, layers of film and banding were used to screen light while still providing privacy for proprietary information. The space also conveyed strength, stability and longevity through a classic design.

 

The focus was to provide offices, shared amenities, and drilling ‘ workrooms’ for the remote drilling operations. This work was performed during a period of increased product demand and at a time, expanding operations, pioneering remote drilling operations.

A versatile setting with different display configurations was needed to accommodate the hands-on portion of the training sessions. The design emulated the industry by incorporating earth tones, natural stones, and a series of black lines that mimic sedimentary layers. Having worked with Precision Drilling on various corporate interiors projects in Houston, we were able to assist with a transfer of knowledge with respect to company culture, workplace and office standards, and operational procedures which, shortened design time for the project and increased accuracy of achieving their design objectives.
Since natural light was a priority, layers of film and banding were used to screen light while still providing privacy for proprietary information. The space also conveyed strength, stability and longevity through a classic design. In effect, we shortened the design time by four weeks, and the workplace design was well received by our corporate contacts and the site managers.
