Mixology Awards 2022
As the countdown begins for the Mixology Awards 2022 we would like to take the opportunity to wish all of the finalists the very best of luck for the awards final on Thursday 23rd June.
As a sub contractor we are always delighted to see some of the projects we have contributed to getting the recognition they truly deserve and this year we have worked on not one but two of the finalist projects.
The first project is Trayport for Oktra in the Workplace category (15,000 – 30,000 sqft), here is some background to the entry;
Innovation meets human experience in this workplace designed for flexibility and agility. Trayport is a forward-thinking technology company that wanted to transform their workplace and future-proof their office. This in-situ refurb focuses on creating a collaborative community and supporting a hybrid workforce. The new office design has united the space through bold and impactful branding to help staff re-engage with the business values. Redesigning this space has resulted in a transformational change within an innovative organisation. New ways of working, enhanced wellbeing and a more dynamic workspace give Trayport staff an improved workplace experience.
The second project is BT HQ Birmingham for TP Bennett/Overbury in the Workplace category (over 70,000 sqft) here is the entry background;
BT set out to create a new Hub in Birmingham that is identifiably BT, whilst reflecting the local values, cultures and ways of working. The workspace needed to promote inclusivity and belonging to bring out the best in their people and create a real sense of community as ‘one BT’.
BT allowed the design team to challenge the boundaries of the brief, creating a bold and unique design narrative. The concept takes BT’s well-known brand and situates it in the local context, with subtle references to the Birmingham’s railway industry, canal networks and jewellery quarter, building a strong design narrative and sense of identity.
An inclusive design approach was key in responding to the BT design aspirations, engaging and testing spaces with the BT diversity and accessibility networks.
The new hub is future fit, with a variety of collaborative settings and meeting spaces with integrated technology to help influence a positive change in behaviours and enhance the hybrid work experience.
We are extremely proud to have been involved with both of these projects and congratulations to all of the teams involved in these projects. From all at RMF HQ – Good luck for Thursday!
