Dublin, Ireland

Renowned for its bespoke office pod solutions, Boss Design was the perfect choice for helping create a temporary and collaborative workspace at the Dublin offices of Citrix Systems Inc. whilst major refurbishment was undertaken. The Citrix brief was to create a customised suite of rooms for group and boardroom meetings, combined with informal settings using soft seating. Being future-proof, this could then be used when relocating to new premises with possible reconfiguration, to work with their changing work landscape. Citrix turned to interior solution specialists M J Flood (Interiors) to find a solution that was bespoke, adaptable and flexible.

Office Pod Systems

M J Flood (Interiors) specified nine bespoke and individual office pod systems to be installed within office space adjacent to Citrix’s main building. The focus being on customised areas offering varying levels of power, data and media, together with the ability to add branding to reinforce the company culture, as well as looking at the new ways of working approach to the office environment.

Three bespoke Vista acoustic pods, featuring both straight and curved corners were specified to create the perfect meeting rooms and to provide a contemporary and flexible addition to the fixed partitioning. Alongside this were six Qube pods in a variety of sizes and configurations. This solution provided Citrix with a result which not only gives them the ability to control their current environment but the future landscape of their workplace.

Individual Work Rooms

All pods were sympathetic to Citrix’s branding and aesthetic requirements and featured complex Audio Visual systems, light boxes, dry wipe panels and cantilever tables throughout. The modular Boss Shuffle with a contoured back for enhanced privacy helped create informal touchdown areas.

Commenting on this specification, Marie Casey at M J Flood says:
“Boss pods were chosen following a careful selection process and were deemed ideal for providing individual work rooms, as well as conference/training rooms for this project. Boss Designs quick and simple installation proved ideal for Citrix’s temporary move, and their ability to be reconfigured meant that the pods would provide added flexibility for Citrix when relocating.”

Working in Collaboration

Phil Duggan, a Director at Boss Design comments:
“Prior to talking to us, the only solution the client had was partitioning, but this would have incurred dilapidation costs at the end of the lease term. Other pod systems were considered, but a suitable alternative wasn’t forthcoming, therefore Boss Design offered the best solution. Working in collaboration with M J Flood and Citrix, we were able to meet the client brief and exceed expectations through effective communication and consistent project management.”
