We approached Future Publishing and offered to complete free space planning services in order to demonstrate to them how they could fit their current operation into fewer floors of their existing building, allowing them to sub-let additional floors and reduce their overheads. We ended up delivering a major fit-out project that's revolutionised their workplace environment.
The project was a perfect example of workplace analysis and fit-out implementation.
Following that initial space planning exercise, we were appointed to complete a full desk utilisation survey which was completed over the course of a week and the results analysed to prove that utilisation was actually around 60% of the desks in situ. Armed with this invaluable information we were able to design a space using agile working solutions and hot-desking which allowed for the business to occupy fewer floors in the building, but still provide an exceptional working environment.
The scheme was an ideal opportunity to refurbish, refresh and rationalise as the current offices were looking a little tired and in need of some tlc. A complete new furniture solution was provided using bench desking systems to allow for greater flexibility. More adhoc meeting spaces, and collaborative zones were included to provide touch down areas where journalists or other team members could work for short periods, freeing up desk spaces for those with permanent office functions.
