Working in collaboration with various other trusted contractors in 2017, 3equals1 managed this large fitout - led on the design - and delivered a grown-up classic scheme which will stand the test of time. Clarion Housing has a long history of successfully providing affordable housing across the UK.
Their head office gives them a timeless, high quality space which will be enjoyed for many years to come. All departments in the company were involved in the design process giving a space that all teams feel responsible for and one that is tailored to a large group of people performing a wide variety of the company's functions.
During the pandemic in 2021, our client decided to have a refresh of their biggest 4 sites. The staff wanted to have a much more collaborative and open feel within their office, with less formal workstations and more soft furnishings throughout to encourage flexible working post-Covid.
Being the client's head office, the main challenge was to encourage staff member to come back to an environment they felt safe and comfortable in. Using smart technology, we introduced several plug-and-play work stations and divided the different working zones with soft seating and acoustic booths for more focused working.
We introduced touchdown points with plug and play surfaces and touch free phone charging for a tech working environment; as well as Catch up areas for more informal meetings.
Maz and the team at 3e1 have done some great work for us over last two years. The team are always more than happy to help and come up with the latest and most cost effective options for us. Hopefully the relationship will continue to bloom in the future.
