Director, AVM Impact
AVM Impact chose Spectrum Workplace to create a new vibrant breakout space design for their new office in Sunbury, London. The old canteen was tired and boring. Because of this staff were choosing to eat at their desks rather than use the canteen. The directors at AVM wanted to create a breakout space that staff would enjoy and would want to use.
The canteen was too small to accommodate their staff numbers so the breakout space was enlarged by including adjacent rooms. Our design team could also see potential for creating informal meeting spaces that would be used throughout the day. As a result the space became more than a canteen used just a lunchtime but a valuable meeting space.
AVM Impact were looking for a partner they could rely on to deliver their breakout space project successfully. They had a facilities manager but it was important that he didn’t need to get involved and therefore could focus on his own role. In addition they wanted to work with a design team that could create the fresh and vibrant design style they wanted.
One thing that set Spectrum Workplace apart at the design stage was the way we worked closely with them. In particular they appreciated the effort we put into the design and presentation to help them visualise the end result. As a result the design met their brief and the end result was an inspiring and motivating staff breakout space.
To illustrate here are some testimonials from some of the staff involved in the office design and fitout process.
“Spectrum had a really excellent design process where they actually illustrated everything. It blew the competition out of the water really, and they came in very competitive on price as well.”

“It is just a nice area, it cheers you up. If you are having a bad day or under stress you can just come in here and clear your head for 5 minutes. But to work for a company that does that sort of thing for their staff is very encouraging as well.”
