“The additional breakout and informal meeting areas have helped us move towards our vision of ‘onemouchel’ with knowledge and ideas being shared more effectively across the different teams and the business”

The new workspace has achieved the following objectives;

  • Multi-use breakout, informal meeting and social areas provide more opportunities for collaboration and integration; resulting in better relationships and more effective problem solving
  • Additional areas to support new ways of working have been created, by reducing individual desk space
  • Dedicated ‘Hot Desking’ areas give mobile workers a sense of belonging
  • Private meeting rooms have been included for clients
  • Mouchel brand is reinforced through furniture colours and finishes
  • The new workspace environment can be replicated across other Mouchel offices both in the UK and abroad
