Lead Forensics partnered with Spectrum Workplace for a complete office design and refurbishment project. Lead Forensics is a leading technology company who provide website visitor tracking. Their office space in Lakeside, Northarbour, Portsmouth had become tired and needed a complete redesign and full office refurbishment. Since Covid they had found that the office needed redesigning to accommodate more flexible working patterns for staff. In addition they wanted to include some really interesting features to help with their recruitment of top talent. It was also important to create a better meeting and collaborative spaces for their team.
THE RIGHT PARTNER FOR AN OFFICE REFURBISHMENT PROJECT IN PORTSMOUTH.
Lead Forensics were looking for a office design and refurbishment company, but one they could partner with. We have worked with them since the company started so had a good understanding of how they worked and what was important to them. However our designer listened carefully to their brief to ensure we fully understood their future needs. It was also vital that they chose a company who could manage the complete office refurbishment project. However our design team were able to work with the client to achieve a design that would suit a more flexible way of working. Our design team also designed an office space with a real wow factor to help with their talent attraction and retention goals. Once we started the office refurbishment project they were able to give us full responsibility for the project.
What was the feedback from the client after Spectrum carried out the full design and refurbishment of their new office space in Northarbour, Portsmouth?
"What we liked about Spectrum was the track record they've got - some of the spaces they've designed elsewhere we really liked the look of. We like the fact that it's kind of an all-in-one shop in that we are just dealing with one organisation. They're then dealing with all of the trades for us."
"We really enjoyed the design process. We were able to give the amount of input that we wanted to give but when we were, kind of, short in some areas the team stepped up and it was quite a collaborative process. Once we moved into the works the team on site were a great bunch of guys, they took care to make sure that the office was able to operate with minimal disruptions and yes I've been very, very pleased with the quality of the work done and the end result."
COO, Lead Forensics
"Well with the project complete the office has definitely been completely transformed - it really is now a first-rate working environment. The team are overwhelmingly positive - I think it's fair to say it exceeded expectations across the board. People are really proud to have this as their offices and it's increased the enjoyment levels in the business. The spaces, the combination of spaces really do lend themselves to our different styles of working.
The other area that we've already noticed the difference as well is in our recruitment - it's very, very rare to have an interview here where somebody doesn't comment on the offices. It really is a notable standout environment and it's a great place to make sure that we can all do our best work.”
