Asia’s definitive and complete sports broadcaster and content provider.
The sports media giant wanted to renovate and expand its premise all while carrying on its 24/7 broadcasting operations inside. We won them over with a well thought-out human migration plan and an interior design that truly showcased the company’s sporting flair. Visitors are greeted by a reception area that offers an immersive media environment. An electronic news ticker wrapped around a commentator’s box broadcasts the latest sports news while a 16-channel configurable media wall displays ESPN STAR Sports’ many programmes. These all sit on a basketball court that we designed to not just look, but sound, like an actual one when played on. The sports theme continues inside the office with meeting rooms decked out with gear from golf, cricket and Formula One. The entire project was completed in six phases over eighteen months as the different departments were shifted around in clockwork fashion—with no major disruptions, on time, and all within budget.
“The renovation and refurbishing project covers an area of 69,800 sq ft. MI Associates demonstrated great consideration and attention to details, which was important as we had to continue our daily business operations on a 24x7 basis while the project was still in progress. Throughout the whole project, MI Associates consulted and worked very closely with us on last minute design modifications and helped us to keep the costs within our approved budget… We
are very pleased with the new look of our office, having transformed out workplace into a modern, fresh and sporty environment.”
