Office design and soft furnishings
Slowly getting there with the new office. Lawyers mostly playing golf, and delaying us somewhat - eating into our precious contingency timing.
It’s looking like we should be able to seat 94 maximum which should be fantastic in terms of getting us settled for the next few years. We will kick off with 20 or so less desks than this. Freeing us up to consider new spaces and fun stuff for the teams across Hive, Ebee and Pollen, and give us some space to consider new offers the group can provide to existing and new clients.
In the early days when we had space at Linen Hall (2008 – 2009) and here at National House (2009 – 2012) we threw the door open to anyone who wanted space, it was a great ways of meeting new people who wanted a place to play whilst setting up businesses or doing something cool. I hope that we can return to this as it certainly led to better work from me, and a richer set of suggestions and approaches for my clients. It was immensely fresh to sit and discuss challenges with cartoonists, illustrators, novelists all of whom healthcare was a personal rather than professional thing.
I have been immersed with floor boxes, desk layouts and meeting anatomy, and planning the all illusive but achievable in-house pub for us. This was sent to me by some interested parties, pretty cool eh? More to follow. The Social guys here are planning a launch party. Shout if you want to come.
