Emerging from the upheaval and challenges that the Covid pandemic has posed for businesses and their staff, it became clear to TM that the traditional office environment had become a thing of the past. Signing a new 10-year lease heralded a commitment by TM Group to remain in Swindon and that they now had an opportunity to create a unique environment for their highly collaborative teams. The conventional office and its function might be under review in some quarters, however, there is no doubt that a well thought out environment that provides a focal point for everyone to embrace, encourages the interaction and communication that is so important. If the most valuable asset for a business is their people, a motivated and happy workforce should be of the highest priority.
Fresh Workspace were commissioned to design a space that would create an atmosphere and environment that employees would enjoy and want to be a part of. Staff wellbeing, brand identity, community, togetherness, teamwork, and technology were important considerations that were to be incorporated into the refreshing new design for the office. The centerpiece was to be a curved multi-level seating Amphitheatre for at least 20 employees, supported by twin 65” screens, whiteboards, and Teams meeting package.
