An extraordinary workplace for a vibrant publisher 

A leading book publisher with 3,000 staff in seven countries, CPI Books is a vibrant and growing business with a strong sense of employee community. After outgrowing its office in Chippenham, one of 5 bases across the UK, the company decided to revamp an unused facility in Melksham to provide employees with a fresh workspace inspiring a genuine ‘wow’ factor.

Strongly committed to staff wellbeing, they called on Interaction to create the quality workspace their staff deserved. CPI Books wanted this 7,000 sq ft space to bring its administrative departments together in a place that would enable staff to communicate and collaborate more effectively, and inspire a sense of belonging and ‘togetherness’.

CPI Books enlisted the help of Interaction to transform the derelict commercial unity into a bright and modern office that nurtures collaborative working, embracing staff and clients alike.

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. Our new workspace is fully inhabited and buzzing with activity.

Toby Culff, Head of Pre-Production CPI Books

An industrial unit gets new life

Designing out dilapidation

Formerly an industrial unit, the site in Melksham was in a state of extreme dilapidation. One of Interaction’s first moves was to remove the unit’s suspended ceiling; this revealed a characterful roof with an array of industrial features and, importantly, skylights.

Interaction has transformed CPI Books derelict commercial unit into a bright and modern office that nurtures collaborative working, embracing staff and clients alike. The environment provides for the varying needs of people, whether carrying out individual tasks or team based work, encouraging everyone to fulfil their talent’s potential. Inspiring, buzzy and fun, CPI Books says its new workplace is ‘extraordinary’.
