13 Jul GRESHAM RIP UP THE RULE BOOK AT MONEYPENNY HQ
The Moneypenny HQ in Wrexham, is a 91,000sq ft space that brings staff from five offices under one roof. Featuring a village pub, seating and a treehouse boardroom the unique space was an exciting project for Gresham.
Gresham were set with the task of providing a desk solution to the new state-of-the-art HQ, that would maximum space as well as feature bespoke divider screens that would keep noise levels to a minimum between workstations. The brief: to “rip up the rule book and create a space that inspires”
Working closely with the client, Gresham designed, manufactured and supplied 600 bespoke 120 degree workstations for use across the main office floors. This process included the production of initial prototype desks and acoustic panels which allowed stakeholders to ‘try out’ and evaluate the quality and appropriateness of the solution before mass production began. Task chairs from the Platinum Squared range were chosen for use alongside the workstations to provide staff with a high level of ergonomic comfort and were manufactured in a variety of bright colours to tie in with the wider interior design scheme.
Ed Reeves, Co-Founder at Moneypenny, said: “The objective for this project was to create something amazing, our dream headquarters and a place in which our staff would be truly happy to work. And how did we achieve this? We asked our staff what was important to them and formed focus groups that kept them involved all the way through the project. Gresham quickly understood the approach we were taking and took it to the next level by designing a workstation to meet the specific needs of our call centre staff, and even allowed them to try it out before finalising the design and putting it into production. The result is that we have a great looking workspace with great looking, great quality furniture which our team are happy to use day in, day out.”
