Scripture Union is a registered charity with 80 staff, over 4,000 volunteers, 45 local mission partners, and 20 trustees. The charity was founded over 140 years ago and works in over 120 countries making God’s good news known to children, young people and families.
Scripture Union engaged with the ACS workplace team as they began the process of downsizing from a 20,000 Sq. ft, 1980’s building, to their new 7,000 Sq.ft office in Fox Milne. They needed a partner that could design and refurbish the entire building and help create a modern and collaborative workspace that was inline with their own values and branding.
The brief for ACS was to create a variety of workspaces within Scripture Union’s new, and smaller premises without the team feeling cramped. Our in-house design team worked closely with the charity’s project management team to create a concept of zones within the office for different types of work.
A light colour scheme was agreed upon that suited existing branding and the inclusion of the latest furniture from Orangebox, Frovi and Ocee design helped complete the contemporary look of the office. All of the refurbishment work was completed by the ACS team, including the supply and installation of all flooring, paint work, cabling & AV, partitioning, and furniture.
The overall result of the project is a light and bright space where staff have a variety of workspaces to choose from, including collaboration and concentration areas. Some of the team’s favourite areas within the new office include the painted whiteboard wall, the media reef unit, and the new boardroom.
