Completion at Montpelier at Lloyd’s
JAC are pleased to announce the completion of Montpelier at Lloyd’s new office space at 40 Gracechurch Street, London EC3V 0DN.
The property at 40 Gracechurch Street is a landmark City building providing contemporary office accommodation behind a new and classic period façade, with a redesigned reception by widely acclaimed Interior Designers Morrow + Lorraine.
Montpelier were established in 2007 to underwrite a diversified book of property, marine, engineering and specialty classes of business, providing insurance and reinsurance solutions for their clients.
JAC have a long standing relationship with The Montpelier Group, carrying out their first office development in 2007 and were engaged early on in the project as both Designers and Project Managers, also assisting in the relocation of their existing office furniture and the supply of new furniture to suit the larger layouts.
The project has seen JAC lead and work closely with a professional team consisting of JAC Design, Unispace, Disposing Agents GM Real Estate and Building, Facility Managers, M J Mapp.
Isabelle Dauchez, JAC Senior Designer commented;
“Throughout the different consultations with Montpelier, it became clear the design of their new offices should be consistent with their values and reputation.
We spoke of the image that Montpelier carries of solidity, trustworthiness, attention to detail, but also of their creativity, ingenuity and expertise.
The new space needed to allow the business to evolve, be more collaborative, more flexible to future challenges.
To illustrate the transformation from a classic, solid and professional office, to a more elegant and creative space, we explored the concept of Progression.
The space in general is fluid, with marked circulations, and the transitions between areas is organically defined, as opposed to the typical ‘cut’ transitions.
The progression is mainly visible in the finishes: from a more minimal and neutral look in the Front of House, going towards an organic and fresh design in the Kitchen.”
“Without exception, staff and guests have expressed how impressed they are with the design and finish of our new offices.
Your team as always were professional, diligent and delightful to deal with.”Richard Chattock, Chief Executive Officer of Montpelier at Lloyd's
