The Aksigorta Head Office in Ümraniye Buyaka, Istanbul, which we implemented in 2014, was decided to be renovated in 2021 with the major change in working patterns during the pandemic process. Diem undertook both the design and implementation of the Aksigorta Head Office project during this change process. The construction of the 2500m2 Aksigorta Head Office project was completed in 2 months.
The important decision for the future: Should we decrease floor numbers from 6 to 4 or are 3 floors enough?
Although it was thought to be rented 2 more floors before the pandemic, the pandemic changed everything. The most important decision of the project was the decision of how many floors the Aksigorta office should have. During the design process, calculations on how many people will work at the office on the same day and the required number of tables were carried out together. While Aksigorta initially thought that it would be reduced from 6 to 4 floors, Diem insisted that 3 floors would be sufficient. It was significant to take this decision that would be suitable for hybrid office needs when there was not enough information about this newly changed working system,
Now, we have put our Waitack application into service so that you can decide on the square meter, floor and building suitable for your needs in a short time. Click here for detailed information.
We visited Aksigorta office, which was designed and implemented during the pandemic, and listened to Purchasing and Management Manager Abdullah Beşe's observations on office uses.
Aksigorta office was planned to meet the needs of the employees, especially for socialization, meeting needs and training. Co-working areas that merge with the open office when the curtains are open, meeting rooms, open office areas without personal desks and the amphitheatre that is planned to host events were designed. Since the go-live day of Aksigorta office, which was put into a hybrid system and planned to have 250 workstations;
The maximum number of people who came to the office in a day is 161. The number of people who came to the office in a day is 75 on average.
One of the areas most preferred by the employees to work in the office was the tables on the facade in the cafe area. It has been observed that these tables are frequently preferred because they have a view and are located in the open area, especially after the large screens are placed.
The space with the Aksigorta logo continues to be used as an Instagram & Webinar area as planned. The area, which can be turned into a meeting space with a curtain, is preferred as open area by the employees. The management floor, the meeting rooms on that floor and the kitchennette are the most used spaces during working hours. The gym is preferred in the afternoon and evening. The use of lockers, which is planned to be 1 for each employee, is quite less.
"Now the new lockers are the employees' own backpacks."
