The renovation of the Antonio Ortiz-Mena Board Room involved the integration of new state-of-the-art technology with the architecture of this 4,000 SF, two-story space. The features include a custom designed conference table to accommodate a maximum of 23 participants, and personal consoles for approximately 100 additional participants. In addition, skylight-like light fixtures were introduced, capable of tracking the outdoor light levels during the day and changing intensity accordingly, to provide a sense of connection to the outside in this interior room.
The Bank’s corporate culture has always operated from a majority of private offices, with a very small percentage of the personnel in open workstations. The Finance Group is no exception; therefore it was quite a challenge to redesign their space as an almost 100% open office environment. DBI conducted an exhaustive study of the operations of this group, which is lead by the Bank’s CFO and includes the Bank’s Trading Room.
