Our relationship with Eurostar has developed over the last few years, starting with the space efficiency modelling and consolidation of some 40,000 square feet of office space in Kings Cross.
To achieve maximum efficiency we partnered with the client to reduce desk footprints, providing space for other facilities such as breakout areas, meeting spaces, Orangebox Air meeting pods and hot design facilities.
Once this was completed we then moved onto their 15,000 square foot space in Ashford, which was a complete strip out and refurbishment of a single floor.
Key to this was the introduction of more natural light, achieved by removing the ceilings and exposing the soffits, creating a greater height and more open and airy workspace.
New Desso carpets, staff tea-point and meeting rooms were the core of the build, with the electrical and lighting installations completely renewed to provide a long lasting working environment for Eurostar.
Existing furniture was utilised across the space in order to reduce overall costs, however this was carefully selected to work with the scheme as best as possible.
