Project story

Standard Chartered, the leading international banking group, has a brand promise - here for good - that guides the company to always be there for their clients and always do the right thing.

It is perhaps this commitment, which echoes Mace's own values, that has led to such a long and successful relationship.

Mace's facilities management division began working with Standard Chartered in 2009 when we were appointed to provide integrated facilities management services at the bank's offices in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Since then our relationship with Standard Chartered has expanded to 24 countries across three continents.

And it is not just the facilities management team that is supporting Standard Chartered's ambitions to drive investment and trade and create wealth across the world. Mace has previously provided project management services across Standard Chartered’s corporate real estate, as well as cost consultancy expertise for their retail and commercial projects.

Mace has been working together with SCB to create a better workplace experience for their building users, and to encourage greater collaboration staff engagement and productivity. In line with Mace's commitment to being a responsible business, and supporting clients with their sustainability goals, we have implemented initiatives to encourage the bank’s employees to adopt responsible business behaviours.

Points of note

Workplace experience

Mace has worked with Standard Chartered to roll out employee experience surveys within their offices, the results of which have enabled our team to introduce changes to the workplace to make it more enjoyable and productive for building users.

In addition to workplace design changes, Mace has also led initiatives with its catering partners to improve hospitality services, as well as introducing more internal planting to improve communal areas and create a greener space.

Energy Savings

As part of the wider facilities management and PMO role, we have been engaged to reduce energy consumption across Standard Chartered’s most energy intensive buildings. We are deploying a number of approaches to achieve ambitious reduction targets.

Committed to our target savings, Mace has been working with the bank to find new energy solutions, in which we have delivered a reduction in energy consumption and water usage since 2016.

Technological solutions

Across the account, Mace has been working to implement technology that will improve the experience of its spaces, reduce energy consumption and extend the life of its critical assets.

On several sites, Demand Logic has been used to provide live data intelligence on how the buildings are operating. This can then be used for bench marking or optimisation of the systems.

Sustainability

Mace has been working to make the Standard Chartered London office more sustainable, by introducing various initiatives to encourage employees to be more environmentally friendly - including the removal of paper towels across the building and single-use cups. Hand dryers have been installed across the building and all paper cups have been replaced with reusable branded cups, collected and washed by the catering team to then be reused. This will help save up to 1,500 cups and lids every day.
