SANNE relocates its Jersey operation to IFC 5, Jersey’s premier Eco-friendly office space in St Helier
Jonathan Ferrara, Managing Director, Client Services – Jersey
SANNE, the leading global provider of alternative asset and corporate services, has relocated its Jersey business into its new home at IFC 5, Jersey’s premier office space at the Waterfront.
The FTSE 250 business previously occupied a series of connected offices in Castle Street, which over the years have been redesigned and retro fitted to address SANNE’s rapidly growing headquarters.
SANNE is now situated in one of the most modern office spaces available in Jersey, with a number of key benefits to staff including natural light to work in and a modern open office environment surrounded by external views of the waterfront in St Helier.
IFC 5 is also very environmentally friendly, having been recognised by BREEAM building standards for using sustainable materials, processes and controls. The building boasts an efficiently chilled and heated water system which reduces the need for SANNE to recycle in excess of two tonnes of plastic each year in Jersey. The building is also energy efficient with Smart LED lighting systems throughout allowing for consistent natural light levels to be maintained in the office regardless of the season.
SANNE’s new home offers staff break out areas, shower facilities, secure bike facilities and access to their own café which they named ‘The SANNE Hub’. The Hub has been designed to be a fully flexible space where teams can hold lunch and learn knowledge sharing events and socialise with work friends, making for a better and more modern working environment for all colleagues.
This move will also enable SANNE to welcome guests to the business through its dedicated ground floor reception on Castle Street. The new purpose-built offices include 11 internal meeting rooms, a client suite with five dedicated client-meeting rooms, an education and training room and various breakout areas on each floor.
Jonathan Ferrara, SANNE’s Managing Director, Client Services in Jersey said: ‘This year we are celebrating our 30-year anniversary and as the business started in Jersey in 1988, it is fitting that we are moving into our new offices at this time. The SANNE business has grown over the years and taking up residency in Jersey’s premier office location in the new International Finance Centre, fits with our aspirations to be a leading global services firm.
‘Moving more than 330 people to IFC 5 has been challenging, but the project team organising it have done a fantastic job. Long hours and logistical challenges have pushed the team, but their enthusiasm, positive attitude and great team work have resulted in a successful outcome. Our staff also embraced the move and helped make it a smooth transition whilst consistently maintaining a high level of service for our clients. It is a job well done and we look forward to the future at IFC 5.’
