HSBC New Workplaces & Branch Standards for HSBC Canada-Wide


With unprecedented retail expansion plans across Canada in the works, ZAS was commissioned to develop a set of design guidelines and standards in anticipation of the resultant work ahead.  These standards are considered a “living” document that is issued on a monthly basis to design consultants working on individual projects for the Bank.  They essentially contain documents that direct internal and external consultants towards the acceptable design aspects of signage, furniture, electrical/communications layouts, security and banking equipment.  As an extension to our workplace design standards contract, our Interiors management team has been appointed as the Program Manager for all expansion design plans across Canada.  While most of this work involves general management of other design consultants, our team is also developing several individual projects across the Greater Toronto Area as well as in Alberta and British Columbia.
