Project In A Nutshell
Sector: Public Sector
Size: 9,300 sq ft
Wanting to enhance efficiency, collaboration and cost effectiveness, The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) relocated to Temple Quay in Bristol. To provide an appropriate and effective working environment, an office refurbishment was required.
Key to the brief was creating an accessible space that facilitated collaborative working between WECA’s constituent local authorities.
Interaction worked closely with the WECA team and local trades people and suppliers to produce a modernised and flexible space. The successful working relationship ensured that value for money was prioritised and the budget was used effectively.
The office includes collaborative spaces, small ad-hoc meeting areas, a board room and open plan conference space. It has enhanced the ability for the Combined Authority and its constituent members to work together.
The Key Features
○ A variety of working spaces including project tables and meeting booths, to cater for every working style.
○ A modern design, based around a neutral colour palette.
○ A board room to accommodate 30 people, and multifunctional open plan area for conference and meetings.
○ Banquette style seating booths to help facilitate meetings.
○ The use of local trades people wherever possible, including for the main build, carpets and joinery.
“Six weeks after the build began, we couldn't be happier with the result. Not only was the project hassle and snag-free, everyone we dealt with at Interaction supported our vision to create an efficient hub for the Combined Authority.”
