Samsung has announced that Samsung R&D Institute, Noida (SRI-N) and Samsung Design Delhi (SDD) have moved to a new office in the city that is housed in an IGBC LEED Platinum rated campus. The new office campus is spread over 377,118 sq ft of space across 10 floors in the Candor TechSpace building on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway.
According to reports, the latest workspace reinforces Samsung’s commitment to its vision of #PoweringDigitalIndia by empowering the next generation of young India with its impactful innovations.
SRI-N and SDD’s new office is built on the linear workstations concept and every floor has a social hub at the entrance. The space also includes height adjustable workstations, which can also be used as standing desks. The workspace follows the hot desking concept, allowing people to choose where they want to sit. Employees at SRI-N choose their seats for a week through an in-house app. Through the app, members of different teams working on a project can choose to sit together and collaborate better.
Infused with biophilic design principles, the interior of the office is built around a human-centred approach. As part of this principle, biophilia or indoor plants in planters are spread across the office. The work floors are also equipped with Indoor Air Quality sensors. Reports suggest that the campus has an IGBC LEED Platinum rating and has been awarded 5 stars by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). The new office uses technology like occupancy sensors and maximises the use of natural light.
“We are thrilled to announce the new location for Samsung R&D Institute, Noida. The new office space is an effort to create a safe and inclusive workplace that empowers every individual to innovate and create. Keeping in line with our core values of people, excellence and co-prosperity, the new office will offer the right environment and opportunities to deliver new-age products and solutions,” said K. Y. Roo, Managing Director, Samsung R&D Institute, Noida. “With this new space, we look forward to providing opportunities to young engineers to learn, grow and contribute to Samsung’s innovative global products,” he added.
