out how much a new Mezzanine Floor
Your staff spend most of their waking hours at work. This means that their office or workspace is the place they are most likely to spend the vast majority of their week. So it cannot hurt to make it as exciting a place to be as possible can it? Earlier this week WalesOnline reported on a fantastic office that took this idea and ran with it!
Featuring a treehouse, a bar and a top notch gym, the office space shows exactly what is possible when companies push the limits of their current office space. It also shows the amazing array of options that are available if you are willing to extend your office space as they have done with a mezzanine floor.
Clearly the extensive building modifications were expensive. Although there was no cost quoted, it would be sensible to assume that the modifications cost the company a large sum. So the question needs to be asked – what is the benefit? A spokesperson for the company said: “We are recruiting 25 people every month. More people means more space, hence the move to the top floor.
“When we designed the office, we designed it with additional space to allow us to expand. We are currently fitting out the top floor of the building ready to accommodate new members to the team.
“Our building is also incredibly eco-friendly and state-of-the-art so we future proofed the building at the very start of the design process.”
The benefit certainly appears to be that the company has taken the decision to future-proof their business and embrace the growing nature of it. With 3,000 applicants for jobs last year, the company also appears to be a very desirable place to work for would be staff. This allows them to be selective in their hiring process and ensures that they get the pick of the most talented staff available from the local area. The company insist that they never actually even need to advertise for staff and receive speculative applications at an astonishing rate. This also means that their costs to hire staff are staggeringly low.
Clearly we are not expecting every business to take the approach that this business has. The company has decided that its premises is the centrepiece of the business and they have taken a rather extreme approach. But it does offer the possibility for you to reframe the way that you see your premises. It is easy to see an office as purely a place to go and work, but these days it can help to see it as a hub where your staff spend the vast majority of their working hours. With this in mind, you can help to create a very different workplace that staff will love. This can help to significantly reduce stress, staff turnover and even sickness. Though hard to put a price on, these benefits over time can make a huge difference to your business.

Thank you to Spaceway for the improvements that have been made to move Bodywise forward. You've done a very good job and we look forward to working with you again.
“I was so happy I did not get bothered throughout the extensive works and that a strict timetable was completed flawlessly. Fantastic experience all round.”
The project was challenging to say the least with the removal of 280 workstations and fitting of 400 new ones, along with collaboration areas and 400 bespoke lockers over two weekends, but Spaceway managed to complete this along with office refurbishment works on time and to an excellent standard.
The project was designed to meet our specific requirements which included fitting in 20 more additional workstations using the existing space. The design works well and has met our expectations fully, we will continue to use Spaceway, they do a good job.
We were delighted with the service from Spaceway.
It’s no good having just an empty industrial building you need a concept for space, a design, an infrastructure and someone to build it. Designing something like this from scratch with someone who’s willing to invest in your ideas, Spaceway is your perfect partner.
