Office

Automotive Technology Company

Egan Reid was appointed by the client, a worldwide leader in automotive after-market testing technology and diagnostic software, to refurbish their northern hub in Stockport, with a driving focus on improving staff wellbeing and collaboration.

Each floor was stripped back, with carpets replaced, new underfloor data cabling installed, partitions removed, and old furniture recycled.

The large open floor which is home to teams of software developers and engineers showcases a range of innovative solutions that deliver the client’s expectations, with a design centred around sit‐stand desks and acoustic panels, combining the benefits of an open plan layout with a mix of more private and collaborative spaces within. The electric sit-stand desks encourage greater mobility and higher levels of activity during the working day while the striking acoustic foam fabric walls address the issue of visual and acoustic privacy which is often problematic in open spaces; they’re also ultra flexible and easy to reconfigure as the teams’ needs evolve. The design also includes a bespoke central collaboration unit divided into 4 multimedia spaces.

The office floor is a bright, on-brand, cohesive space which has been opened up by removing unnecessary partitioning that could hinder communication and uses a sit-stand linear bench desk system allowing teams to collaborate freely. Soft acoustic partitions and discreet storage divide the space into designated working areas, giving teams and departments privacy where required as well as softening the ambient noise of the office and keeping the space free of clutter.

A soft, high-backed seating booth in the centre of the office floors offers a vital space for teams coming together over projects and tasks. Meeting rooms and collaborative spaces are partitioned with full height glass and walnut doors, providing necessary discretion and privacy for the HR and admin teams as well as adding to the feeling of open space and transparency.

Phase 2

Having previously completed Phase 1, Egan Reid was brought in again to complete Phase 2. Over the course of 3 weeks, Egan Reid coordinated and executed a comprehensive refurbishment and renovation of the building’s first floor, left hand side.

The first floor has been designed with productivity and innovation in mind: the brand colours provide welcome brightness throughout, whilst old photographs of Stockport’s automotive heritage adorn the walls, lending personality and unity to the space.

In terms of layout, the office has been opened up by removing unnecessary partitioning that could hinder communication. Instead, we opted for a sit stand linear bench desk system allowing teams to collaborate freely and giving employees the option of flexible working if desired. To achieve this, we began by removing and recycling the existing office furniture including desks, chairs, partitions and storage. The carpet was uplifted and disposed of before brand-new data cabling was installed underneath.

Soft acoustic partitions and discreet storage are used to divide the space into designated working areas, giving teams and departments privacy where required as well as softening the ambient noise of the office and keeping the space free of clutter. A community bulletin board and cloakroom space brings a human touch to the space as well as providing useful space for coats, bags and personal effects.

A further collaboration space featuring a soft, high-backed seating booth is positioned in the centre of the office floors, giving teams vital space for coming together over projects and tasks. Meeting rooms and collaborative spaces are partitioned with full height glass and walnut doors, providing necessary discretion and privacy for the HR and admin teams as well as adding to the feeling of open space and transparency.

Automotive Technology Company

In true reflection of the client’s corporate culture, this project delivers highly on innovation, collaboration and productivity. There’s also a strong sense of community and unity, with dedicated social spaces and visual elements highlighting both the local history and the company’s own heritage.
