‘IVC embraces openness’ at AIB Corporate Banking
IN the heart of Dublin’s central business district, the offices of AIB Corporate Banking have been transformed to embody the company’s values, with LVT flooring from IVC used extensively throughout.
Occupying seven floors of office space, AIB Corporate Banking called in the expertise of RKD, a leading international design firm to create an interior that reflected the company’s values of openness, collaboration and transparency over a total area of 14,000sq m.
For common areas, the canteen, tea stations, meeting areas and board rooms, RKD has used wood-effects from IVC’s Moduleo 55 LVT specification to deliver a floor that ‘gives an authentic look with the function needed for demanding areas’.
Using a mix of standard planks in Moduleo 55 Woods and the Staggered Columns 203 design from the Studio Moods concept, RKD has created what’s described as a natural-looking floor with additional design features.
Says the company, ‘Using Studio Moods to bring added visual impact in meeting rooms and a feature inset in common areas that complements the vertical panels of natural plants, mosses and ferns used to divide areas; RKD has created a floor that works to enhance the organic, open feel of the interior.
‘Featuring a 0.55mm wearlayer, IVC’s Moduleo 55 LVT construction is the manufacturer’s top-of-the-line specification. Delivering faultless performance in busy commercial spaces, with the additional protection of Protectonite PUR for a surface that resists stains and remains easy to clean, it’s a floor that can be specified for busy areas with complete confidence.
‘Available in glue-down and click, Moduleo 55 Woods comes in 40 authentic looks each with a textured surface that adds to the realism.’
A total of 1,460sq m of IVC Moduleo 55 Woods and Studio Moods Staggered Columns 203 in various decors were used at AIB Corporate Banking. The refurbishment was carried out by Structure Tone, a global construction management and general contracting provider.
