About the project

When it comes to office refurbishment and fit-outs, finding a company that can handle all aspects of the project can be a challenge. However, Alpma found their perfect match with Spaceway, who offered comprehensive services for their office transformation.

The Decision to Choose Spaceway

Alpma MD Nick Aikenhead reached out to several companies for the refurbishment project. However, Spaceway stood out as the only company that could confidently handle all aspects of the project.

Other suppliers were limited in scope, focusing on individual components like mezzanine construction or furniture installation.

Spaceway’s ability to provide a complete package, including mezzanines, decorating, furniture, and project management services, made them the ideal one-stop solution for Alpma’s requirements.

Motivations for the Refurbishment

The decision to refurbish their office was driven by Alpma’s desire to refresh and modernise their workspace. After a decade in the same location, they aimed to update their office procedures, eliminate clutter like filing cabinets and cupboards, and create a more modern and inviting work environment.

Additionally, the post-COVID era necessitated a pleasant workspace that would entice employees to return to the office. The shift in expectations brought about by remote work meant that comfortable desks, ergonomic chairs, appealing aesthetics, and improved facilities were crucial for attracting and retaining staff.

The Seamless Process with Spaceway

Nick was incredibly happy with Spaceway’s professionalism and efficiency throughout the project. Spaceway’s team made multiple site visits, bringing catalogs and samples to discuss various design elements with him. Their initial offer, which covered all the required elements within a reasonable budget also impressed impressed. A project team was then deployed to plan the intricate details of the refurbishment.

Spaceway’s accommodating approach enabled Alpma’s office to remain operational during the construction phase. The project managers worked around the existing office, making necessary adjustments while minimising disruptions to daily operations.

The entire project was completed within a remarkably short timeframe of three to four weeks, with an additional two weeks allocated for final touch-ups. This swift turnaround reduced any business interruption and exceeded Nick’s expectations.

 

“I’m very pleased how they’ve gone through it all and actioned it and they’ve got good depth of resource, good depth of people, and good skilled people who work well and tightly and good communication. So I’m delighted.”

Positive Impact on the Business

The office refurbishment had a resoundingly positive impact on Alpma’s business. The revamped space provided an improved work environment, boosting employee morale and productivity. By removing outdated elements, enhancing lighting, upgrading carpets, and incorporating modern designs, Spaceway created an attractive office that employees were eager to return to.

The positive changes brought about by the refurbishment were so well received that Alpma have engaged Spaceway for a second phase of renovations, covering the remaining areas that were not addressed in the initial project.

Conclusion

Alpma’s experience with Spaceway highlights the importance of finding a comprehensive solution provider for office refurbishment and fit-outs.

Spaceway’s ability to handle all aspects of the project, their seamless execution, and their dedication to client satisfaction were the key factors that set them apart. The success of Alpma’s office transformation serves as a testament to the expertise and professionalism exhibited by Spaceway.

By investing in a modern and inviting workspace, Alpma not only met the evolving expectations of their employees but also created a positive and inspiring environment that will benefit their business for years to come.
