Commercial interior design, build and delivery specialist, ADT Workplace has completed work on a full office design and refurbishment for award winning, online investment platform interactive investor. The 31,345 sq ft. newly refurbished office is located in Manchester’s financial hub on Deansgate and is a perfect modern environment for fast-paced, collaborative working.
ADT Workplace was selected to undertake the full office design and refurbishment (CAT A, B & C) for interactive investor, which was looking for a long-term home and true agile working space for up to 250 staff including a contact centre and digital hub.
The new space has been designed to be elegant and timeless while promoting collaborate working, innovation, and growth. At heart of the open plan office is an elegant atrium, which includes areas for collaboration, relaxation and meetings. Two office floors are connected via a feature architectural stair case to facilitate collaboration and ease communication across teams, and stylish meeting pods have been installed to provide the perfect space for colleagues to collaborate and innovate. Staff will also benefit from the use of a games room and café. With offices in London and Leeds, a new technology platform was also implemented to create agile working and connectivity across all sites.
Commenting on the new office space, interactive investor’s CEO, Richard Wilson, said: “We chose to work with ADT Workplace as it was the organisation that best understood our needs. They were able to empathise with what we trying to achieve and work collectively with us to create the space we needed.
“It’s safe to say that the new work environment has been transformative for the business. It is a much more effective working space than we had previously and we’re already directly seeing its benefits in terms of employee engagement, productivity, happiness and culture. With ambitious plans for rapid growth, we’re confident that the new space will also be key in helping interactive investor attract and retain the best talent. It’s a fantastic space to not only work together in but also to relax. People feel proud to work here and proud to bring candidates and suppliers, and even family, to visit.”
Tara Woloszijnl at ADT Workplace said: “Working with the interactive investor team was brilliant. They were involved throughout the whole process and were instrumental in helping create the collaborative spaces, such as the atrium, as well as quieter areas and meeting rooms. Because of this true partnership approach, we were able to create an inspiring and dynamic work space which met their needs and aspirations.”
