The Project

Spread across levels three, four and five, the large office was easily accessible via a new large spiral staircase situated in the centre of the floors. Given the nature of Skype's business, particular attention was paid to audio visual and acoustics. Special acoustic ceiling panels and lamp shades were fitted throughout the meeting rooms and insulation spaces to ensure exceptional sound quality was achieved throughout. Skype was very pleased with the final outcome and ISG received a 10/10 score from the client for quality as well as 100% for Absolute Completion.
