IO Oil & Gas

IO Oil & Gas has been established as an independent joint venture with GE Oil & Gas and McDermott, to provide a new model of offshore consultancy, providing the right balance of consultancy and engineering to effectively manage and deliver full field development plans.


BDG worked with IO to design their office in The Shard, creating a cohesive and transparent home to the newly established company. In order to reflect the brand we designed the reception area as a cafe/bar, which also forms the social hub for both staff and clients, enabling clients to experience the IO business.


A variety of worksettings are incorporated within the office area including workstations; long bench and breakout areas to support quiet, focused or team working. Spaces to collaborate are important to IO, from formal meeting rooms to multi functional spaces that can be used by the IO team and clients.
