The Finnish family-owned investment company Rettig Group, through its holdings in about 28 countries worldwide and employs more than 4,000 people. In September 2017, an extensive renovation of Rettig Group’s headquarters on the Boulevard was started, in connection with which the office premises were modernized. In June 2018, the headquarters staff returned from the temporary premises to work back on the Boulevard in a completely renovated premises.
The Rettig Group’s headquarters on Boulevard were built in 1880 and originally served as a brewery’s warehouse. In connection with a renovation in 1990, the warehouse building was converted into office space that needed renovation after years. In connection with the renovation, the aim was to modernize the historic building, improve the comfort of the premises and make the premises more in line with modern working methods.
Lasiliiri Oy delivered glass elements for the partitions of the site in cooperation with HSL-Group. Sound-insulated Optiphon glasses were utilized in the head office’s office space, which conveys the feeling of an open space, but also guarantees the required peace of mind. As more light and space was desired throughout the site, but there was also a need for occasional privacy, Lasiliiri Oy’s smart glass was a great solution. The smart glass met all the requirements and in addition it was able to bring the much needed, more modern look to the office.
