Project Description

In connection with moving multiple offshore operations in the North Sea onshore, an expansion of Statoil’s facilities in Stjørdal was required: A modern building that could facilitate optimal interaction and ensure integrated operations on and offshore.

Based on Statoil’s work processes, IARK has assisted in developing the shape of the building to achieve optimal adaptation of workspaces and supportive functions.

IARK has worked closely with Statoil representatives, and in collaboration with architect PKA created flexible solutions that will easily facilitate any future restructuring or reorganization processes. We have also facilitated design and equipped the interior in accordance with the activities Statoil is involved in. 

The result is an inspiring work environment that ensures good conditions for future tasks and operations.

The social area

One of several social areas adjacent to a coffee station.

The light cone to the right in the image distributes sunlight from an opening in the roof and down through all of the floors in the building. All the social zones are in slightly different colour schemes, equipped with various types of furniture and located in bright spacious surroundings shielded from the working areas. Perfectly suited as meeting points for up to 60 people.

It’s very easy to collaborate with other locations here, which is great, as there is no need to travel!

10 Nobs

Everyone is seated in open surroundings throughout the new building. Placement is based on a thorough analysis of workflow and department-related compounds. The workspaces are conventional in design. Thus no furniture has to be moved around during any kind of interaction.

11 Nobs

Glass walkway running through the two wings of the new building. Main circulation is via footbridges, stairways and elevators, all of which are located in this area. This allows pedestrian traffic to pass through the corridor without disturbing the work areas.
