Standard Chartered Bank's "Workplace of Choice"
Commercial Design India features our work with Standard Chartered Bank in Bangalore, highlighting it as the “Workplace of Choice”. The centre uses latest technologies and practices in data, robotics and software development. It also houses the bank’s global centres of excellence in specialised areas such as data analytics, software development, anti-money laundering, financial crime surveillance and financial control.
The design reflects this dynamic activity and provides a balance between the intense work and the need to rejuvenate. The M Moser team selected “street culture” as the core design concept, taking inspiration from urban centres such as New York, Barcelona, Berlin, London and Sydney.
Addressing sustainability throughout, the new workplace has seen 13.5% energy savings (compared to 2017), 2,270 tonne reduction in carbon emissions and 7% water savings (compared to 2017).
The Standard Chartered Bank Global Business Services (GBS) has not only scaled SCB’s operations and capabilities but created an inviting workplace culture. The multimillion dollar, state-of-the-art complex is located at RMZ Ecoworld, occupying 43,000 sqm and accommodating 19,000+ employees.
