Schering-Plough is a worldwide, research based pharmaceutical company with an ingrained belief that success begins and ends with its people. So when it came to a relocation of offices for some of its staff, the company sought the advise and expertise of the DOI Group.

Heat and Glare Control for Comfort and Efficiency

DOI designed a refurbishment to maximise the return on investment in terms of office efficiency and staff productivity. DOI’s team know that by enhancing the workplace, better productivity is gained.

To help achieve this, GP Systems was appointed to help control the buildings excessive temperatures. The heat was not only overloading the air-conditioning, but affecting the staff’s performance.

A dark silver reflective solar film was installed to the buildings 60m² of glazing. Staff no longer complained about the heat and the glare reduction now allowed them to work on their monitors without discomfort.
