Alium were asked to look at the redesign of the company’s existing 9 tea-stations which were beginning to look a little tired and suffered from bottle-necks at busy times of day. A detailed consultancy process with an internal user group further developed the initial brief to include adjacent print and break-out space. This resulted in intermediary collaborative zones on the edges of the office space that combined tea-stations elements with reprographics, meeting space and post facilities. Next to each of these areas were the existing wash-room facilities which were then upgraded as part of the same project to reflect the new more vibrant colour pallet. Alium, as Principle Designer and CDM Coordinator worked closely with the Principle Contractor and in-house Health and Safety team to develop a detailed programme of staged refurbishments in the continually occupied work space.
