Assessing the Requirements

Chamber of Commerce reached out to Rodley Interiors to assist and steer their strategic office relocation project, moving their Business Support, Membership and Representation teams.

We established our clients requirements during our site visits discussing their likes, dislikes and the reasoning behind the project. With the collaboration in the refurbished space of the Business Enterprise Fund, the Chamber’s subsidiary company who provides finance and start up loans to companies across the region, this was certainly an exciting and progressive project for the Chamber.

Overcoming Challenges

This significant office relocation came with its own challenges, the new location was not only on the 5th floor but was also underpinned by a narrow staircase and the buildings original architectural features. This could have made lifting the materials to the floor space difficult and somewhat time consuming. By planning our offload and distribution, our on site team overcame these challenges competently.

Office Spacial SolutionsOffice relocation

We recommended utilising the buildings available natural light with office glass partitioning, the glazed partitions also acted as a clever office spacial solution projecting the appearance of a larger area. We created;

  • Boardroom and Meeting room areas.
  • Larger and smaller office spaces.

Single glazed Frameless glass partitioning was fitted between 2 existing internal columns which formed the large boardroom area.

This partitioning system is fluid and attractive in appearance and becomes a feature in its own right. The partitioning we installed throughout this office relocation mirrored the professionalism and superiority that our client upholds and allowed for a productive and functional area for all staff.

We used a number of products during this relocation including;

  • DS2151 Tektura Matt Vinyl
  • Banded Opal Frost Manifestation 500mm from the floor level.
