Palmberg equips new Marine Operations Service Unit of the Costa Group!
Hamburg – since the beginning of September 2015, around 2000 out of 13,692 square metres of the seven-storey Centurion Commercial Center, completed in 2010 and located in the Hamburg HafenCity, has been home to Carnival Maritime GmbH, the Marine Operations Service Unit of the Costa Group.
Carnival Maritime is the new Marine Service Unit operating on the highest technical standards for the Costa Group, Europe’s leading Cruise Company. The unit bundles marine operation competences and best practices providing the highest safety standards in the cruise industry for the most modern fleet of Costa Group, currently comprising 25 cruise ships of the brands Costa Crociere, Costa Asia and AIDA Cruises. In Hamburg, Carnival Maritime brings together the Marine, technical, environmental and security expertise of the entire Costa Group from the former marine operation units in Genoa and Rostock, including Human Resources Deck & Engine and Technical Procurement.
To equip the new offices at the location in the Hanseatic City, Carnival Maritime GmbH cooperated with the office furniture professionals from PALMBERG. The suitable products were selected in several planning stages in order to meet Carnival Maritime’s requests and requirements. Planning and implementation were focused on integrating all components in a finely tuned and functioning overall conception. Intelligent space division and utilization of space were important issues as well as requirements concerning a sufficient number of communication zones. The 150 equipped workplaces consistently show the same characteristics by using the CREW table system in combination with storage space elements from the PRISMA 2 and ORGA PLUS series and integrating the TERIO space division system. Another criterion for the selection of the new furnishing was, along with functional and sustainable aspects, that it would provide the Carnival Maritime staff high-quality flair of modern working environments with a character to feel comfortable. Thus, a modern office world came into being, supporting a dynamic and open corporate management.
