Since its inception in 1990, CHIP’s objective, as one of the most reputed security and management systems integrators in Lebanon, has been to offer customized high-end solutions that are either imported from the world’s leading manufacturers or developed in-house. Discussing the company’s move to a state of the art facility, chairman and general manager, Hady Nahas said, “We started with three individuals, occupying one room; and now that we have grown into a team of 75, we needed to regroup under one roof, our whole team as well as our warehouses, workshops and a showroom. Furthermore, we wanted our headquarters to also serve as a vehicle to showcase the various layers related to our entire operation. We now have a spacious multi-purpose room where we can setup presentations and banquets, and a showroom, where we can display and demonstrate our products in operation. The HQ is located at Beirut’s Seaside Road and is spread over a 1,200 m2, leaving room for future growth”. The building’s design, courtesy of architect Malek Salame, has a very modern and functional look and feel, which was achieved using an amalgam of natural elements such as metal, wood and glass with plenty of green spaces. The interior was designed in such a way to offer upper management the privacy to operate without distraction, while providing an easily customizable open space to the technical teams so that they can work and communicate efficiently.
