"I returned to the office this morning to find, for the first time, our new work-space fully inhabited and buzzing with activity. It was a rewarding moment and one which has only come about as the result of a great deal of work, both here at CPI and, of course, at Interaction. It seems a fitting juncture, therefore, at which to write and express my sincere thanks to you and your team. Your considerable efforts and expertise have culminated in the delivery of an impressive and inspirational space, and the finished result far exceeds my initial expectations when I first picked up the phone to you in 2014. It has been a long and interesting journey, and I am enormously proud of our achievements.
The decision to renovate the unused office space in our Melksham site was motivated by two core objectives. Firstly, we had outgrown, and were becoming increasingly frustrated by, our Chippenham facilities. In other words, there was a practical imperative; the business and our employees deserved better. However, just as importantly, we also wanted to create a space in which our various administrative departments could communicate and collaborate more effectively and profitably. In short, we wanted to enhance the sense of ‘togetherness’ and ‘community’. It was our belief then, and it is my belief now, that there’s the potential for us to work better in a new environment."
