Refurbishing an office requires so much more forethought since the pandemic made workers think long and hard about what they want from an office, or whether they want to be in an office at all.
Their opinions are vital in creating a space where people feel they want to spend their working day – and once those opinions are known, the input of the experts is equally vital in turning that vision into a reality.
The team at ACS has worked with national Top 12 accountancy firm MHA MacIntyre Hudson for some years now, building an excellent working relationship with its offices in Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties. Most recently, thanks to recommendations from its local clients, ACS was involved in the transformation of MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s new offices in Colchester.
The completed project, which saw ACS working closely with Northamptonshire construction services firm FormFive, has been a complete success, with the client impressed with the way they were guided through the process from start to finish.
Cara Miller, Partner at MHA MacIntyre Hudson in Colchester, said: “We wanted to create a space that people wanted to work in after returning from remote working. That needed to include new ways of working and after we’d spoken to our staff about what they wanted, we talked to ACS about their experience, getting support and advice based on their knowledge and what other clients were doing.
I struggled to imagine what the office would look like, and so it was very important to me to see the artists’ impressions in order to make choices on final touches and colours. The ACS and FormFive teams worked collaboratively and the office is exactly what we thought it would be, we couldn’t be more pleased with how it’s turned out and we’ve had so many compliments.”
