It's typical for any company to extend the office space to accomodate their business growth. However, for an international company DKSH (Thailand) Limited, it means 10 floor office building for healthcare product department and another 5-floor for technology business deepartment.
This 10,000 sq.m. Space is house up to 2,000 employees. The project has to be completed within the time frame of 60 days.

“White, grey, red in a crisp form” sums up the corporate character. Given DKSH’s Global branding policy that governs the use of colours and materials, Kultida Leenabanchong, Corporate Communications Manager had to be more scrupulous in the choice of decoration. The office’s identity reflects DKSH’s sense and style from the beech-coloured desk, crisp cut furniture shapes with no curves, especially the Grey Bar which is like DKSH’s symbol. Upon a closer look, you will see this grey bar everywhere, for example, on company’s collaterals like Crisp cut furniture without curves.posters and brochures. The same design in decoration helps align the interior design to the company’s branding. With the branding identity issue addressed, the next challenge is “building the office that works in accord with 2,000 staffs.” This plays another key aspect of the interior design that is reflected through floor plan which allows easy access to the office zone with grouping desk alignment to facilitate interaction between colleagues, foster creative thinking and brainstorming. Another positive response is the installation of staff lockers which not only helps in terms of space management but also looks tidy and provides a sense of privacy for all staffs.
Employees were also given a chance to help choosing office furniture such as chairs. They got to test and trial different models, as they are the one who would be really using them regularly.
