GE Healthcare - Social hot spot for manufacturing
GE Healthcare Finland Oy develops and manufactures patient monitoring and anesthesia systems. The Company offers anesthesia machines, ventilators, and drug delivery systems as well as sells diagnostic X-ray imaging and other hospital equipment worldwide. The GE Healthcare campus in Helsinki hosts a number of different activities from R&D, Sales to manufacturing, making it an unique facility in Helsinki city center.
As part of a larger transformation of the GE Healthcare campus in Vallila, Agile Work was asked to define, design and deliver a new social cafe lounge area for manufacturing. The space was to enable internal social activities as well as increase employee satisfaction among the manufacturing staff. The major challenge was to do the spatial transformation of the previously manufacturing space into a social cafe area fast, without disturbing factory lines. Another challenge was to create a community space that would enable ad-hoc meetings social gatherings and events as well as guide the users keep the space clean, organised and inviting for everyone.
Agile Work produced this great social hotspot to increase communication between manufacturing and RnD employees. The space included 2 large wall murals, kitchen and coffee areas as well as ad-hoc meeting pods for private discussions.
