Office Design & Refurbishment Case Study – AJ Travel
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. Taking into account the specific needs of the business, the nature of their clientele and the fact that the office is essentially public-facing, we were able to draw up a floor plan that allowed for foot traffic to take place freely, and for a requisite number of desks and storage facilities to be installed without loss of practicality.
The AJ Travel project enabled us to work with a public-facing firm that wanted to bring their look and space into the current sphere – the firm wanted to redesign their colour scheme, their desk layouts and their overall sense of space. It is essential for public-facing offices and buildings to monopolise upon as much space as possible. This is because both customers and employees need to be made to feel as comfortable as physically possible!
The outcome of the AJ Travel project saw us develop and finish an office space that allowed us to emphasise their brands, showcase their brochures and catalogues, and to enable customers and staff to move around freely while retaining the same functionality and purpose that the previous office held. The firm were delighted with the outcome, and we were especially pleased that we were able to work so closely with the staff and to provide a fit out so close to specifications. As office fit out specialists, it is always our aim to emulate the approved project design to the letter – and here, we were able to deliver the perfect, functional space that effortlessly held up to the original drafted design.
