Colour is one of the most important aspects of any design plan, and while your choice of colours, blends and shades may come largely from personal preference, there are going to be other factors that come into play with regard to making the right pick from the palette. The colours you use in your office fit out or interior redesign should reflect your branding – of course – but as any experienced office designers will tell you, the colours you choose can have a remarkable and positive effect upon the productivity and morale of your workforce.
Partition walls are largely replacing the clunky, unappealing cubicles of old, and we’re very glad indeed that they are! It’s safe to say, however, that they don’t come in just one flavour – the partitions you choose for your office will depend upon your staff’s needs, your existing branding and more besides – and here at GXI, we will always help you in your search for that perfect look and installation. Here are just a few that you may wish to start thinking about.
Every workplace is slightly different, and while certain office spaces can ape or borrow from each other from time to time, there are plenty of ways through which you can apply your own branding touches or thematic choices, should they be practically feasible. Flooring is, of course, massively important in the overall design of your office – and if you are unsure about which option you should take in terms of setting up the floor for your final design, here are a few of our favourite options to help you get started.
While the main focus of office design can revolve around productivity and efficiency – and there’s absolutely no reason why it shouldn’t – design trends have been moving towards focusing on the wellbeing of the individual employee more and more in recent years. In the modern workplace, each and every employee should have their individual worth and role to play – and here at GXI, we know exactly how to make work a more enjoyable, healthy experience for them, while enabling you to seize the results you’re looking for.
Some of the most popular and rewarding work we take on and complete for our clients is the office fit out. Essentially, should you already have access to space in which you’d like to build your office or workspace, it makes sense to try and build your business up from scratch within those four walls – and while it may be tempting to start taking each element of an office on one step at a time, it makes more sense to allow a team of experts to guide you through fitting out that space from scratch and in one fell swoop.
Anyone with more than a little experience in office design and modern movements in the industry will tell you that office partitions as we know them are on their way out. Gone are the days of stuffy cubicles and immovable partitioning – glass is no longer a luxury commodity and, while still fabulous to look at, is now available widely to the commercial sector in a vast array of styles and forms. GXI have years of experience in helping to create truly stunning glass solutions – and when used in the right office design, they can truly help to aid the look and performance of your office.
The modern office is vastly different to the workspace of even a decade ago – you only have to look at just how far technology has come to understand that the way in which we work has evolved beyond all comprehension. Technology aside, however, anyone who has been working in office spaces for more than a few years will already have noticed a trend in design which has both a purpose and a luxury touch behind it – glass partitions are undoubtedly the office design feature and function of the now, and GXI are proud to be able to provide such fittings for offices of all shapes and sizes.
Getting a workspace just right in terms of visual appeal, space planning and functionality is never an easy process if you are going it alone, and here at GXI Group we are proud to be able to offer friendly, approachable consultation on all matters refurbishment and fit-out – regardless of your specific office needs and regardless whom you may be working on behalf of. This means that you may not necessarily be representing the office or company yourself – as we work widely with architects and designers on a freelance basis, too!
Thankfully, finally, creativity is being valued just as much as productivity – on the whole – as business is looking to appeal more and more to younger markets that are evolving beyond all control. The service and marketing techniques that worked for Generation X will not necessarily work so well on Generation Y – and this means that keeping an eye on workplace trends and interior design trends is an absolute must if you are to keep your firm’s head above water in an ever-evolving marketplace.
You may not be getting the most out of your office space – this much is true! Here’s a quick-fire FAQs session to help you learn a little bit more about the office refurbishment process, and how we may be in a position to help you.
What’s the best layout for me?
No matter what you do with your office space, never push your furniture to the centre as a focal point. Focus on edging necessary furniture and really open=plan your existing workspace.
No office refurbishment checklist should be without more than a few ideas on how to free up that scarce commodity – space – whether you’re working with a small team or a larger firm in dire need of some elbow room. We therefore advise in each and every consultation that you place space on a pedestal. Space enhances productivity, improves efficiency and can even help to boost morale – a triple-threat attack which we think will help to enhance the performance of your office and workforce tenfold. But what’s the best way to get started – when office space planning, how do you make sure that you move in the right direction?
Any firm or small business interested in revamping or reworking their workspace will be keen to know what the average office refurbishment cost is. Unfortunately, there is no ‘average’ cost – it is largely down to your specific needs and requirements as to how much you will spend once any given project is completed. Therefore, office refurbishment should never be entered into with a specific cost in mind – what we advise our clients is to have a budget range so that we may be able to work with them towards a target that is comfortable and feasible for them. Therefore, we can still work towards implementing the changes and additions that they may require.
As experts in office interiors London firms rely upon, we always need to make sure that we keep our fingers on the pulse of the action – of the industry, and ways through which we can help to improve the look and functionality of the offices and businesses we partner with. We don’t think any office or workspace deserves to be left behind in the past – and while trends and design choices may change from year to year, we always aim to present design choices that not only embellish a company image and brand but also offer a contemporary and practical look which will serve for years to come. Trends come and go – so we effectively aim to future-proof for all of our clients, no matter what they may require from us. Read More
While many office fit out companies London and elsewhere will be able to advise you on the best options to take when it comes to either redesigning your existing workspace or building an entirely new fit out up from scratch, few will offer you the authentic approach that GXI are proud to supply to each and every one of our clients. It’s our aim to get to know your company and brand as closely as possible from the start of consultation so that we may better understand why you need a new office space – and how we can potentially make changes to any existing layouts so that you are actively competing with the best in the business.

All businesses aim to expand – both on a revenue basis and on the basis of allowing more people into the firm stronghold. More people on deck means greater efficiency – especially if workloads are increasing and if it is looking increasingly hard to keep up with demand.

To be able to inspire your workforce, you’ll need a workspace and a mission statement that works – and you can hardly go wrong with a few new touches here and there to your physical set-up. Read More
It goes without saying that the way we work – and play – has changed a lot over the years. When it comes to arranging our homes, offices and workplaces, no matter what we may do, the concept of secluding ourselves away through stuffy cubicles and partitions is falling far behind. In today’s working world, the word on the street is glass – glass partitions not only help to increase natural light, but they also help to increase visibility and bring us together. You’ll largely find glass being used on a partition and walling basis on a residential basis, too. Read More

Organisation – nice if you can harness it, but it’s often far trickier to come by on a day-to-day basis. While all successful businesses need to remain resolute, disciplined and organised in everything they do – if they want to continue being profitable and to continue overseeing a happy customer base – it can be easier said than done to ensure that your day-to-day running is efficient and that the space you are working in is efficiently designed to maximise productivity.

A change is as good as a rest – especially when you may be shifting your business focus, or are looking to try and revitalise your company morale. There are good times and less convenient times, however, when it may be best for your office refurbishment to take place. Moving around your office partitions, changing colour schemes and installing employee-friendly seating and storage is all well and good – but when is it best to time such changes – and how can GXI help?
One of the best opportunities to seize upon with regard to office refurbishment is, of course, when you’re looking to expand. If you’re moving your small business into the corporate arena, Read More

As experts in office fit out and refurbishment, GXI are always on hand to create a contemporary office space for any and all business needs with a view on what is working wonders for the competition.
Modern office spaces focus on open plan thinking.

Windows and glass walls, Read More
They always say that you can tell everything you need to know about a person simply by looking at them. The same, to an extent, can be said about offices and work spaces – outsiders such as potential clients and employees will judge your working environment majorly on the way it is presented. You may have an impeccable record or an admirable culture – but unless you let these shine through your design choices, you could be left scrabbling around for positive noise. From office space choices to breaking elements down such as dusty old office partitions, there are plenty of steps for you to take.
Getting everything well-oiled and working smoothly in the office is easier said than done. Consider how many factors you have to juggle just to get ahead in your given field – planning for strategy isn’t easy! However, when it comes to an office fit out or a general design policy, there are a number of areas you should be looking at if you want to build a successful workplace with minimal effort.
Focus on the Workplace
What do you do for your clients? Are you performing to the best of your ability? How do you intend to meet certain targets moving forward? You need to consider what makes your workplace tick – if there are any elements that can be made more efficient, or if there are any facets that you can copy or borrow from the competition Read More
A change is as good as a rest – and while there may be circumstances where office refurbishment become absolutely essential (such as maintenance needs or rebranding etc.), there are more than plenty of reasons why you should be considering keeping the look of your workspace fresh and on trend – and we’re about to cover a few of the more important factors right here.
Keep In Trend
Ok – so your business may like to go against the grain, or may not necessarily operate in a field that places much value on trends or crazes – but when it comes to keeping your staff happy, Read More
A happy employee is a productive employee – no matter how many times you may have heard that cliché said, it’s true! And it all starts with an office fit out and office design that inspires your work force to work to the best of their abilities – and to their ultimate potential. There’s numerous ways you can work a new office design to the benefit of your employees’ mental wellbeing – and here are just a few.
Keeping Minds Active
You’re going to want to lead with an office fit out or design policy that walks a fine line or balance between over-stimulation and minimalism – you don’t want to create distraction, Read More
The need for functional, modern workspaces is growing – and with this, the need for experts such as those working with us at GXI Group has never been higher. When it comes to creating that great first office space design, you’re going to need to consult a firm who know more than a little about how to get the most from your office interiors – and a team whose knowledge of office fit out trends and practicalities puts them at the very forefront of their industry. Here at GXI, we understand that no two offices are the same – and this is why we work closely and personally with each and every one of our clients to ensure that our designs and plans embody their brands and ethos as much as they adhere to their needs and desires. Read More
Office design strategies come in all shapes and sizes, though they largely all have the same goals in mind – to boost morale, to boost productivity, and to save space. These three rules, generally, are golden – meaning that we at GXI Group are well-versed in operating on all of these levels when working alongside a variety of different clients. When it comes to planning your office space, you may be keen to focus first and foremost on the outward look – the colours, the partitions, the storage – but in our opinion, it is the office furniture going into your new space that you should be giving the most attention to.
Office furniture has a reputation, built up over the years, for being somewhat cheap and unreliable – everyone remembers the squeaky and slightly flimsy wheelie chairs of old Read More
Sometimes, an office partition is necessary. There may be times where you need to hold a private meeting, or you may need to segregate certain groups if a number of different projects are underway. Therefore, it is wise not to wave goodbye to the partition as a concept altogether. If anything, it is prudent to consider how you can make partitioning work to your advantage. Here at GXI Group, we have kept on top of the various trends and movements in office design and space planning over the past few years and are always eager to share our findings with our clients. After all, it is important to us that you leave with an office floor plan that benefits you for years to come – and that inspires both your personnel and your visitors.
Rethinking your office space – or starting from scratch altogether – is never easy. You’ll need experienced office builders on side, first and foremost, to ensure that you have the insight and expertise to bring your ideal workspace to life – but before tools are even picked up, you are going to need to think a little about what you want from your space – and how you can plan for it. As office fit out experts, GXI Group are only too happy to share tips with all of our clients – and before you commit to any one particular plan, here are a few things you should think about when it comes to planning the perfect office space.
Consider, firstly, how much space you need Read More
Throughout our work – as one of the leading office fit out companies London firms rely upon – our teams here at GXI need to ensure that we are flexible and ready to help businesses of all shapes and sizes revamp and refit themselves to compete with an ever-evolving market place. For a smaller firm such as Bell Masion, it was important that we apply our knowledge and appreciation of the importance of space – and how best to enhance the feeling of expansiveness in even the most restricted of spaces.
For Bell Masion’s office design we needed to focus on making the most of a relatively small area – creating spacious, Read More
Portcullis Computer Security – operating under Cisco – are a commercial security firm based in Watford, specialising in assisting businesses protect themselves against the growing threat of cyber-attacks. As part of our office fit out service, the firm approached GXI Group for a creative and professional new workplace design which would both inspire employees and wow external clients. Despite the company name – Portcullis – we worked with the team to design and produce a very open, relaxed and functional office space that is not only keeping in trend with modern workplace aesthetics up and down the country, but is also proudly casting aside outdated office partitions and dated standards. Read More
Anyone looking for office fit out companies London and beyond may be tempted to think of a rather basic design when it comes to the ‘stereotypical workplace’. Filing cabinets, plain blinds, partition walls and cluttered desks – sure enough, work gets done in these types of environment, but how productive are these workforces in comparison with the wider populace? Office builders in 2017 are looking more and more at space as a crucial factor in not only improving the overall aesthetic of basic workplace interior design, but also in helping to harness productivity and boost morale. How does this work? It’s simple science – of course!
People generally work better when they’re not closed in Read More
When it comes to what works across the board in terms of office interiors and office design, you are always going to need to focus more on how the look and feel of a workspace impacts upon your workforce before any other superficial matters. While many offices and businesses will be looking to renovate and redesign in an effort to appear more modern, or to try and appear more capable or professional to external clients, there is much that can be said for keeping your employees happy and productive with just a few changes to space, design and practicality.
Practicality, above all, is still very much the most important factor here. An office that is redesigned to look superb but Read More
Knowing exactly what makes your employees tick is half the battle – but when considering an office fit out, you are also going to need to keep a close eye on current trends, contemporary design choices and ways through which you can really bring out the best in your workforce. There are many different ways employees can be inspired – from redesigning office partitions to creating more opportunities for storage and less ways to divide people, you simply need to consider how your business could grow with just a few tweaks and changes made to your existing office.
Shehnai Banqueting Hall is arguably one of the most interesting projects GXI Group has taken on in recent years, particularly as our teams largely focus on office refurbishment and fit outs – however, this recent project has allowed us to demonstrate just how versatile and dedicated our designers, fabricators and installation teams are in tackling new requests. Shehnai Banqueting Suites are ideal for parties, conferences and celebrations of all kinds – and the family-run firm required a keen eye for commercial design to help bring their latest suites to life.
Free from the office furniture and partitions of old, our teams set to work to create a stylish yet professional lounge which balances culture and class. We opted for a clean, contemporary slant throughout Read More
Infoplus Technologies are a firm dedicated to providing global IT services and ad hoc support to a wide range of firms and industries – therefore, in order to provide consistent quality in service provision and expertise, they were in need of a new HQ to be able to mobilise and motivate their teams to be the support network their clients can depend upon. While the firm already provides a sterling service, our creation of a fully-operational, collaborative HQ for the firm allowed us to provide staff with ease of use in terms of telephone and mechanical systems – as well as an enhanced sense of space and transparency to inspire employees to work as a team and believe in the brand. Office interiors London and beyond are catching on to the concept of open-plan working – it allows us to be more collaborative; to share ideas and to work together to bring out the best results.
IT specialists Exponential-E Ltd approached GXI Group in search of office builders to help renovate and rejuvenate their workspace in an entirely new office – in light of big shifts in the design trends adopted by IT consultancies throughout the UK, the firm were keen to capture a unique look that not only helps to sell their brand image and ethos, but also helps to boost morale and productivity on the office floor.

This was always our intention.
We led in with modern partitions and panelling adorned by inspiring landscapes and the core values that drive Exponential-E – even choosing to showcase some of their many glowing reviews Read More
AJ Travel – also known as AJ Tours and Travels – are a Harrow-based travel agency who offer their customers wonderful holidays and breaks abroad – meaning that their office space needs to be both appealing to the public and to their employees! The firm approached GXI Group for office refurbishment after deciding to revamp and redesign their interior look – they needed spatial redesign and refurbishment that continued to emphasise their professionalism, while at the same time making the most of their existing dimensions without the risk of crowding their clientele. We were more than happy to take up the project!
Throughout this particular project we were involved closely with AJ Travel from start to finish – the firm had a number of ideas that they wished to bring to fruition but required office fit out specialists to consult, analyse and quote. Read More

One of the many questions we are asked here at GXI Group is ‘how much will our project cost?’ – it is a fair query. After all, you are likely to want to know exactly how much you should put aside in your budget before you get started in any project consultations. The short answer is always that costs can vary – but that you can be assured of competitive pricing that will be based entirely upon your specific needs, and with no hidden surprises or top-up fees.
Office workspace trends are changing from year to year, and with this we have needed to ensure that we can still provide affordable and effective solutions for office fit out London firms can rely upon – we base our pricing entirely upon your specific spatial requirements, your furniture needs and any extras you wish to introduce as part of a bespoke project.

More and more office spaces are opting for a contemporary look that is not only great on the eye, but is also resilient, fire-proof and built to weather the years, too. The standardised cubicles and partitions of old which may have worked for small office fit-outs in the past are now not only considered clunky or even choking to workers, but may not even be considered safe or fit for purpose. Contractors and office interior designers agree that the way forward, no matter what the enterprise may be and no matter what the material may be used for, is glass. Glass partitions are fast becoming commonplace in office workspaces of all shapes and sizes – and it’s not hard to understand why. Read More
When it comes to office refurbishment, one of the many aspects that people initially miss is the flooring – and it’s perfectly understandable! While there is so much emphasis on rebuilding partitions, arranging for new colour schemes and installing new, practical workspaces, the floor can sometimes be forgotten about. As part of our office refurbishment London and beyond, we aim to give your office floor the exact same care and attention as every other aspect of your project. Gone are the days of stuffy carpeting and boring lino – you’re going to need to think about planning for space when you’re picking out the right for your office. Read More
Anyone who has spent time in an office in the past few years may already have spotted a huge trend towards removing the stuffy cubicles of old. Contact centres largely operate on a round table basis now, and those offices which do require segregation do so on a basis that still allows for transparency and flexibility. While some offices opt for modular furniture, walls and more, you can do no wrong by considering the benefits of glass as part of your office design – and in tandem with effective lighting, you can create offices that thrive on expansive space and increased transparency. Have you considered glass partitions as part of an upcoming refurbishment? Read More
Knowing what’s best for your office space is more difficult than it may first appear – after all, unless you are actively up on all the office interiors London has to offer, you’re going to feel somewhat lost in terms of knowing what the most effective colour schemes and designs are for your team and your brand. Getting the colour scheme right for your office can mean making a conscious choice between adhering to your brand or favourite colours and choosing those which are either inoffensive or inspiring – and, of course, the best colour scheme for you will be entirely dependent on what your business does, and how your team works. Read More
Sometimes, it’s good to change. When you work in the same office space day in, day out, things can get a little boring – but this is only one good reason why you should consider refitting your office or workspace out entirely. If your business or branding is going under a revamp, if you need to appeal to a certain type of client or, simply, you need to update your décor, there are more than a few reasons why you should definitely consider redoing your office space entirely. For office interiors London firms rely upon for complete re-fits, GXI Group’s teams have more than a few years of experience behind them in building workspaces up from scratch. Read More
From single glazed frameless glass office partitions to simple, moveable walls that can be constructed and allocated as you wish, there really is much to be said for modern office partitions. The era of the stuffy cubicle and the claustrophobic office layout are gone – in 2017, office design is all about openness, inclusivity and making sure that everyone has access to everyone else. This may seem like a fairly simple concept, but it is one which will require expert analysis and design technique to get right. It is a process which will also require knowledge of what works well for any given workspace or business. At GXI, we believe in quality partitions – from glass partitions to flexible, modular units – and we are therefore proud to offer expert consultation on London office refurbishment from firm to firm. Read More
The way in which our offices and workspaces are designed and built has been evolving for some time – while it can be convenient to have certain areas of your office partitioned away, there have been movements in interior design to help retain a sense of space and to reduce claustrophobia.

Here at GXI, we specialise in glass partitions and office interiors London firms can depend upon. Here are just a few ideas that may work for your office. Read More

It’s a bit of a cliché for offices to still operate under stuffy, exclusive cubicles. The world has moved on from partitioning in a big way, and while the need to separate departments and employee hierarchies still very much exists, there are better ways to tackle such problems. Office partitions are no longer the space-crowding monstrosities they used to be – meaning that if you’re looking for the most liberating but effective office partitions London firms can buy, you can turn to talented teams such as ours at GXI Group to ensure that your office is refurbished in a manner that benefits your appearance and employee morale.

When considering an office refurbishment, or hiring office builders to re-imagine your existing workspace, what should be prioritised and what shouldn’t? What areas should you consider focusing on to enhance employee morale, productivity and overall appearance for your brand? As experts in London office refurbishment, our experts here at GXI Group are only too happy to help you narrow down your answers – but there are a few key areas that you should always consider focusing on ahead of any design consultation.
Consider, first of all, your space – how much space do you currently have to work with? How many employees do you house? Are there any unnecessary pieces of equipment, any jutting walls that could be pushed back? How can the overall space of your office be opened up by office builders? When considering your working space, it is important to consider how much you need as a minimum, and if you are currently restricted by any means – this, naturally, will be more than enough sign for you to consider scrapping a few existing fixtures and fittings. Read More
No two offices are the same – and while some may certainly look that way, you only need to look at the wide range of employees and work being completed to understand that a ‘one size fits all’ policy is never going to stick when it comes to effective office refurbishment. As one of the premier office refurbishment companies London has to offer, GXI Group are only too happy to assess a business and its employees’ needs ahead of committing to any one design. Read More
Offices have changed a lot over the years – and for good reason. While we may previously have been happy to spend our working hours in stuffy cubicles and crammed, uninspiring environments, office refurbishment has really kicked into gear in the past decade – with many firms and specialists such as GXI Group offering superb, contemporary and open-plan office fit out companies London and beyond will turn to for morale and productivity boosts. There’s more to a happy workforce than casual Fridays and the odd staff party – companies now are actively looking to provide more flexible, transparent workspaces to employees at all levels, often breaking down barriers between departments and tiers while doing so. Read More
The modern office is moving swiftly into redesigning itself for a contemporary era, meaning that the choking walls and cubicles of yesterday will soon be forgotten – there are thousands of businesses up and down the UK that are benefitting from glass office partitions, allowing them to section off areas of their offices without having to segregate or make any employees or departments less visible. There is much to be said for introducing glass partitions into your office, and many reasons as to why glass partitioning is more than just a trend. Read More
The modern office looks fairly different to the stuffy workspaces of old – gone are the days of having to trudge into choked cubicles and cornered-off workspaces that inspire little other than low morale and poor productivity – contemporary office design is all about bringing everything out into the open, and the use of office partitions – particularly in the form of glass partition walls – is becoming increasingly popular in office spaces and contact centres alike. But why are glass partitions becoming so popular, and how can they benefit your workspace? Read More
Some businesses redefine and redesign the entire look of their offices for a number of reasons. They may be rebranding, changing clients or simply in the mood for a new look. These are all perfectly good reasons for changing things around a little – and here at GXI Group, we have worked with a number of clients who have shown very different reasons for wanting an office fit out to benefit their business going forward. But when is the right time to opt for a complete office refurbishment? Read More

For an office fit out that will transform your working space into a completely new environment for you and your team to operate in, look no further than GXI Group. Read More
Anyone on the outside of an office environment may already have a fairly stereotypical view of what a corporate office should look like – the word alone conjures up images of stuffy, closed-off environments and cubicle systems, with office partitions clogging up space to breath and work. However, as anyone working with office partitions London and elsewhere will tell you, things have changed in terms of the way that partitions and walls are approached with regard to office design. Glass partitions, walls and otherwise are treated with a view to offering workforces more space to be productive, creative and happy in their office environments. Read More
Getting your workspace or office layout just right isn’t so much a case of what looks good and what may work for other people – it’s all about getting the balance between space and functional design just right for your team and the work that you carry out on a daily basis. If you have no need for an open plan design, or if extra storage is likely to go to waste, there is absolutely no reason for you to have it installed – while some office builders London and elsewhere may insist upon standardised design to fit all industries and operations, we at GXI Group like to think a little differently. Read More

When it comes to office refurbishment, it’s likely that you may wish to change many facets of your workspace that require more than just a simple moving of furniture or the introduction of an odd plant or two. More major changes that could involve the redesign or restructuring of your office – whether or not you are opting for an office fit out or a complete rebuild – will need to be authorised by relevant local authorities to ensure that your proposed design project adheres to building regulations.
Installing partitions or blending rooms together into an open-plan office refurbishment will likely require the intervention of building regulations to ensure that you are authorised to make the changes that you are proposing. Such changes and alterations will require you to complete certain paperwork and possibly pay a fee, meaning that it is highly recommended that you research and plan effectively before accommodating for an office fit out of any size or scale.

When it comes to effective office interiors London, many may be quick to claim that the design of a workplace has no direct effect on a workforce’s culture or demeanour. While no comprehensive studies suggest that this is entirely true, here at GXI we still believe that creating a contemporary, spacious and empowering office unit is important as an aid to encouraging office culture to change.
There are many ways in which office culture can change, and while office interiors such as a new lick of paint or a change of furniture may not make a drastic improvement upon employee morale or psyche, it is important to remember that if you are interested in changing the design of your office, you need to consider how you are going to empower your workforce if you wish to significantly change the culture or morale.

No office design, London or elsewhere, is the same – and here at GXI Group, we understand this.

Office space is essential – it is not only crucial to your staff and colleagues, but it is also an integral part of your processes. Too little space provides for little efficiency; and can also mean less room to implement new features, departments or even staff, whereas too much space can appear wasteful – and can even be less cost-effective in terms of energy consumption. Getting the right amount of space for both your business needs and your employees’ needs is a fine balance that can only be tackled by experts in interior workspace design. Methods such as going open-plan or installing glass partition walls are amongst the most popular, however, we understand that each operation is a little different. Read More

However, what is the reason for the upturn in such office trends? Office design, London and elsewhere, appears to be taking a particular turn. Read More
Offices and their designs have changed across the years – and not necessarily recently – and gone are the days of operations being stuffy, poorly-ventilated and difficult to manoeuvre – modern offices, on the whole, should emphasise space, comfort and many do. A good business in 2016 cares for its employees as much as its operation and its turnover, and a happy employee is, on the whole, a productive and satisfied employee – meaning that morale should be at the top of the bill. glass partitions are infamous for providing blocks across the country some of their most notorious stereotypes – that they create crowded, stuffy cubicle areas which fail to inspire a healthy work ethic. There is, however, an alternative which is proving to be extremely popular in modern operations.
