IOR worked closely with Shanks to transform their tired Milton Keynes offices into a highly productive and effective workspace, supporting staff and business needs. Sustainability was key to the approach for this leading international waste-to-product business, successfully incorporating a reuse concept and recycled materials into the office design.
The principles of Herman Miller's ‘Living Office’ were used to ensure collaboration spaces were maximised and provision made for areas of focus and concentration. Both working practices and office aesthetics were re-energised, pride in the Shanks brand was reflected through use of large graphics. Each office fit out phased move was celebrated and staff briefed with welcome packs to ensure the potential of their new environment.
