Metro-Wall Secures Eisai Contract

When one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical companies, Eisai Inc., made the decision to relocate their New Jersey headquarters, Metro-Wall quickly became front-runners to fit-out the state’s largest office lease of the year.

MetroWall is excited to be providing over 2,700 linear feet of   our innovative product lines for this 332,800-square-foot lease. The firm will join Prism Capital Partners’ ON3 mixed-use campus in Nutley, New Jersey.

MetroWall commissioned by Eisai Inc

MetroWall has been appointed by SJP Project Solutions to create a sleek, comfortable and user-friendly environment for the firm’s 1,200 corporate staff and research and development functions, with room for ongoing company expansion.

Jon Scott,  Managing Director of Metro-Wall, said that glass walls are ideal for fast-paced, connected and collaborative work environments.

“This is a really exciting project for us, and we’re extremely proud to be working with Eisai Inc., an oncology and neurology-focused pharmaceutical company in their new LEED gold certified office space. It’s an honour to work on something of this scale, and for such a respected client. The contract is, in many ways, a testament to the results we’ve delivered to date, our expertise and our industry reputation, and we’re looking forward to providing Eisai with the same great outcomes.”

Popularity of workplace glass partitions

Already known for delivering emotional and intellectual stimulation, glass partitions have never been more popular, with a post-Covid19 world making truly open-plan layouts less appealing to many workers and workplaces. 

“Glass walls don’t just create an exceptionally beautiful environment, they’re also extremely practical. They bridge the gap between open-plan and traditional multi-office designs, delivering the best of both worlds; a sense of community and collaboration with dedicated areas for privacy and focus. 

“The layouts for Eisai’s space have been thoughtfully and strategically designed for the company now and as it evolves going forward, with a clear focus on fostering extensive employee engagement and collaboration. Our products’ clean lines, the sense of space and light they achieve, and the inherent functional flexibility of their design, are strongly aligned with the ways of working favoured by future-focused organization. 

“We’re proud to be partnering with Eisai inc. to deliver a workspace that embodies the organisation’s core values, creates an inspiring environment for high-achieving teams, and a headquarters that reflects their market-leading expertise.”

Transforming workspaces with custom glass partitions

For Eisai Inc. the move into the ON3’s landmark 15-story office tower will see the firm join a next-generation life-science and lifestyle campus, integrating state-of-the-art lab, research and office space in what has been described as the ‘heart of the Northeast’s thriving life science corridor’. 

“Eisai is a human health care company. This ON3 Eisai workplace will bring the Eisai community together in one place and drive a culture of new scientific horizons and entrepreneurial innovation,” said Eisai President Tatsuyuki Yasuno

“We draw inspiration from our patients and passion from our people. We break barriers every day. Our workplace will too.”

Why Safety Should Always be a Priority

National Safety month is an annual reminder to us all of the many hazards facing workers on construction sites and of the importance of keeping everyone in the industry safe.

The goal of this year’s campaign is to help reduce the leading causes of injury and death at work.

The most up-to-date statistics puts the importance of health and safety in perspective!

Of the 5,333 workplace deaths in the US in 2019, the highest number – 1,061 or 20% – were in construction. That’s over three people every day or over 20 every week!

It is a shocking statistic that is completely avoidable if the industry takes the precautions it should!

And it’s simple steps that make all the difference.  

Our Top 5 Tips for a Safe Site

  1. Ensure you have the right tool for the job. Investing in tools that work with the natural movement of the body can prevent a range of injuries and strains. Always check tools are working properly before operating.
  2. Wear full protective equipment at all times. It is your last line of defence if you come into contact with a hazard on your site. Safety boots, high-viz vests, goggles and hard hats all protect you against serious injury so make sure you don’t enter a site without them.
  3. Never work high up without suitable guard rails or other fall prevention safety measures.
  4. If you see something you don’t feel is safe then report it to your supervisor. Management can’t act unless they know what is going on and the sooner an issue is reported, the quicker it can be fixed.
  5. Finally, keep your site tidy. Tripping hazards and spills can lead to accidents and serious injury so make sure you keep your work area tidy during your shift.

Glass Wall Partitions: The Safe Solution for Post-Covid Offices

As Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease, ensuring the health and wellbeing of office staff returning to work has never been more important. Limiting the spread of infection is a key public health requirement, so the importance of designing office space with safety and employee well-being in mind is more recognized than ever before.

There’s no doubt about it: the appetite for secure, collaborative working environments is growing. Here at MetroWall, we’re experts in designing bespoke glass partitioning and we work with clients to redevelop workspaces to find safe solutions tailored to your environment.

We’re passionate about bringing people together safely and here’s how we do it:

Glass Office Wall Systems

The benefits of glass are clear: it’s a sustainable material that lends fluidity to indoor spaces and allows for the transfer of natural light. Whilst promoting a more open and transparent environment, glass partitions reduce the spread of infection and generate smaller areas that can be more easily cleaned and contained.

We have three series which all provide an extensive range of design possibilities for our clients:

Vetro Series: 

This versatile glass wall partition system provides endless options for offices of all shapes and sizes. In fact, hundreds of possible configurations mean that almost any desired result can be achieved.

Vetro designs can handle robust levelling tolerances and are super simple to integrate. This adaptable system can accommodate room schedulers, electric strikes, maglocks and much more. Metro Wall specialists will work with your fit-out plans and visions to redesign a secure space for your staff. 

DG Series: 

If you’re looking for enhanced privacy, then double glazed glass wall systems are the perfect solution. This functional system not only creates transparent safety barriers but also is designed to meet the sound and privacy requirements of the client.

Our DG Series accommodates single glazing and solid panels too – so you aren’t restricted to one type of panel. 

LP Series: 

This is a real minimalist solution that lends style and fluidity to office spaces. With a ¾” bottom profile, the LP series aluminium profiles offer unrivalled transparency and aesthetics.

Compatible with room schedulers, electric strikes, maglocks and most manufacturers hardware… the options are limitless. This innovative all-glass wall partition system accommodates ⅜” or ½” glass and a wide range of configurations.

For infection control that doesn’t compromise on design flair – our LP series is the right choice. 

Why Should You Choose Metro Wall?

We’re industry experts with more than 14 years of experience in intelligent office design. From the design phase, right through to installation and beyond, we’re here to guarantee successful results that stand the test of time. 

We’re quick too. Our 3-week lead time is something that we’re super proud of and we never compromise on quality.

We work with your design team to tailor solutions for any space, no matter the specs. Designing, drawing, measuring and installing – we’ll take responsibility to make sure the results are exceptional.
