Furnishing Oliver James Associates’ new Spinningfields office

Case Studies /

We were delighted to be invited to tender for the opportunity to furnish Global Recruitment Specialists, Oliver James Associates’ new office at No.1 Spinningfields, Manchester. The new impressive space which spans across two floors is home to 120 members of their team.

Oliver James wanted a space that supported productivity and collaboration and would be a welcoming environment for their people to work. After carefully considering the design by Simon Millington, we created the following spaces…

  • Sectors: Recruitment Specialists
  • Project Type: New Premises
  • Project Date: December 2017
  • A state-of-the-art WorkCafe complete with a range of seating and table options, perfect for encouraging rejuvenation and social interaction between colleagues, whilst also providing a range of informal collaborative spaces outside of busy lunch periods.
  • A welcoming reception area designed to create a lasting first impression for visitors, furnished with stylish copper based Connection Dixi seating and tables.
  • Open plan office space with space saving FrameOne Bench Desks from Steelcase and ergonomic Gesture chairs to ensure the comfort and well-being of all workers.
  • Informal collaborative areas within the main open plan office with colourful Jig Circular Poofs from Nomique, ideal for quick ‘away for your desk’ meetings with colleagues
  • Spacious formal meeting rooms, finished with Lano tables from Orangebox, selected for their unique ‘soft vase’ shaped design which enables all participants to clearly see the screens and contribute equally.

We have been extremely impressed with the service provided by Penketh Group. Nothing was too much trouble for Sam and the rest of the team, and they delivered a seamless installation from start to finish.

Our people are enjoying their new workplace, which is dynamic, full of positive energy and we are already proudly showing it off.
