Origin are the UK’s leading specialist manufacturer of bespoke aluminium bi-folding doors, windows and blinds.
Having launched in 2002, Origin, through innovation, quality and an energetic, family driven culture, had comprehensively outgrown their workplace, showroom and manufacturing.
The project was to create a fabulous working environment, which kept the personal nature of the company and represented the one family / team, working together to achieve excellence.
Acquiring a tired 20,000 sqft mixed office and R&D building, our scope was to install all new services and refurbish all finishes and common areas.
Focus areas for the project included a new showroom, comprising a timber framed house complete with a variety of Origin’s innovative and high quality products.
Alongside this, a dedicated training suite was developed for both staff and visitors. The workplace needed to be innovative and very collaborative. Coming out of the previous overcrowded workplace, we needed to retain the energy and close interaction but provide areas where people could focus and work efficiently.
Additionally, directors area was placed centrally with a mixture of open plan and cellular spaces to provide immediate communication and the ability to work confidentially.
A fabulous client and a fabulous workplace.
