ING Car Lease case study

“Plants lift everyone’s spirits and improve the atmosphere, making the building an exciting and vibrant place to work.”

The Brief

ING Car Lease runs a fleet of 46,000 vehicles, the vast majority of which are supplied to major blue chip companies. Their offices are based in the heart of the Thames Valley in Bracknell, Berkshire. Their offices have recently been refurbished in ING's corporate colours, leaving little room for the original, much loved indoor plant displays. A brand new breakout area has also been created, in which the staff to spend valuable team building time.

The Solution

Working with ING's Office Services Co-ordinator, Ambius designed a new interior landscaping scheme which involved the removal of the original 23 office plant displays and their replacement with troughs full of colour, including the well known ING orange, to bring life back to the office without taking up too much valuable floor space. A custom-built triangular planter was commissioned for the break-out area along with two silk flower creations. Ambius was also able to retain five of the original specimens within the newly-decorated offices.

The Results

The result was a resounding success. Whilst the new indoor plants were being installed, ING's staff were asking for advice on plants, touching the plants and providing positive comments. With the light reflecting off the plant containers, they almost look like marble and the customer was left very happy. The following morning, whilst the new office plants were installed, ING’s visitors had asked which company they were from so they could contact Ambius about our indoor plant ideas for their offices!
