careyjones was asked by Reckitt Benckiser – one of the largest international ‘household brand’ manufacturers – to provide an energetic, and flexible ‘world class’ office focusing on recycling and sustainability as well as corporate branding and core products.
The 32,300 sqft fit-out project progressed on a Design and Build basis and involved the refurbishment of two and a half floors of office space and ground floor communal areas, with the construction phased to allow the building to remain occupied.
As part of the clients CSR policy much of the existing partitioning, furniture and carpets were relocated and reused where possible. The office spaces incorporated central ‘hub’ breakout points and colourful, flexible working areas with dynamic space planning that encourages ‘team’ working.
The implementation of this new ‘corporate culture’ became so successful, that it has become the organisations working model and is currently being rolled out in their New York offices.
