As with a lot of businesses, much has changed for our sister company Ast over the last year since the first lockdown – they’re doing more online meetings and virtual consultations than they used to, they need to work in a socially distanced way and have had to rethink their workspace as a result – to ensure it serves them well and the team can continue to work as efficiently and accurately as possible.
So Ast’s MD Mark charged our Director Gary with refreshing Ast’s Penrith HQ interiors, to make sure they are super-equipped for video and phone conferencing and the team is properly socially distanced. Mark also wanted a general interiors refurbishment, to keep the offices fresh and his team inspired.
We set to work and designed and made bespoke acoustic ceiling rafts and integral wall panelling for Ast’s meeting rooms, giving them the best acoustics solution possible for virtual meetings. These do the job brilliantly while still looking the business. We’ve changed the layout of the offices so there’s plenty space for the team to maintain social distancing and we also created some new meeting spaces, for meeting in person.
We’ve refreshed the wall and door coverings throughout Ast’s reception area, transforming them from dark wood, to light and we’ve created a series of ‘living walls’ of greenery throughout the building which look amazing and help support team wellbeing.
Not only does Ast’s HQ look fantastic, the acoustics are superior, the space has a better flow and we did it all quickly and cleanly, with minimal downtime, using our existing surfaces.
We can easily do the same for you, so if you’re looking for an interior design refresh, to change your surfaces, for better acoustics, or smarter conferencing, get in touch with Gary and he’ll be glad to help.
