“Our clients response has been amazing, they love the building. I am sure we are getting more work because of our new office. We are in a stage of growth at the moment, and we wanted to show our industry, clients and team that we are good at what we do and are growing.”
Our world is full of interesting people. Retailers to rail workers, bankers to bus drivers, actuaries to agriculturalists.
We have the privilege of working with super brands and businesses across all sectors. We wanted our new office interior to reflect our personality and have meaning for our clients. We wanted the place to look great, but we also had to make the best use of an unusual space.
We had outgrown our premises and we needed space for our growing business, but the space had to be right for us. We found a former Methodist Chapel, but we needed a specialist team with the right skills to make it happen.
Chameleon's full interior fit out included specialist skills such as fitting mezzanine floors, stained glass windows, and specialist lighting in addition to exterior restoration works to bring the building back to life.
“We are the largest independent buying group in the UK, with a buying power in excess of £5.7 billion. We wanted a new head office fit out to represent where Today’s is today.”
Our new property was like a clean slate for us. It gave us opportunity to provide a working experience that was on brand for how we operate today.
From carpets to furniture to a completely new layout and suite of offices that maximises space and provides a working environment that is much more enjoyable and productive.
With a 6,500 ft2 and a limited timescale, we wanted to have a modern office that reflected the Today’s of today. We had never commissioned a project like this before.
Moving to a new head office and managing the refit was something as a business we needed to go right. From our first meeting, through to design and fit out you could tell that Chameleon knew exactly what they were doing, with a great process that was easy to understand and follow.
“Over the last 45 years, Wykeland has established an enviable reputation as a leading property development company. We wanted a our head office to represent our current values and provide a great place to work and visit.”
The new design removed all the interior walls exposing the original steel columns and evidence of fire damage following bombing during the second world war.
This history was incorporated into the design to retain the original heritage of the building.
The existing space was a tired, cellular office environment with 300mm thick dividing walls.
The brief was to create a modern open plan environment to create a more collaborative work space.
