Technology precision cooling company Iceotope is a business that’s proud of its brand, its company personality and its relationships with its customers. However, its office didn’t reflect this. When the company looked to expand its workforce, it found its office design was holding them back from recruiting the best talent out there. Because of this, Iceotope decided it was time to create a new working environment that would better encourage new staff to join its team.
With strict brand guidelines, Iceotope and APSS worked together to create a new office design for its existing space. The space was designed for purpose including a white board wall (also known as an Idealisation Wall) for the team to better communicate their ideas and planning strategies. Break-out areas allow for staff to take a break from their screen or just provide an alternative place to work which helps boost productivity.
A biophilic design is captured throughout the office interior with greenery hanging from the ceiling as well as green feature walls acting as dividers between spaces. The greenery also acts as a sound dampener and reduces excess noise across the office. Suspended ceiling rafts throughout the office add to the sound suppression in the louder areas.
Private soundproof meeting booths were installed for both one on one meetings as well as virtual meetings and a self-irrigating planter wall on the side connects the pod to blend in with the remainder of the office design, providing a low maintenance way of bringing nature inside. The benefit of real plants in an office environment includes helping to purify the air, reduce excessive moisture and boost productivity by providing that link to nature.
The flooring was divided into sections with carpet for the workspace, and vinyl flooring for the walkway and kitchen space. These are high-risk areas for spillage from drinks and food which make the hard floors a perfect addition to the office space due to its easy cleaning capabilities.
Iceotope’s new open-plan office design has created a better working environment for staff and acts as an additional benefit to working for the company, helping to better attract a new level of talent into the business.
From the initial consultation to the final walk-through, the team at APSS demonstrated exceptional professionalism, creativity, and dedication to delivering a stunning and functional workspace that exceeded our expectations.
Despite a tight deadline and budget constraints, APSS was able to deliver the project on time and within budget, a testament to their commitment and expertise. Their design approach, which prioritized both aesthetics and practicality, has resulted in a workspace that fosters collaboration, productivity, and employee satisfaction.
Our team has been absolutely thrilled with the new office space, and the positive impact on morale and productivity is evident. The attention to detail, clever use of space, and the seamless integration of our company's values into the design have made our new office a source of pride for everyone.
In fact, we have been so impressed by their work that we are already returning to APSS for support on a new project, further solidifying our confidence in their abilities.
In summary, we couldn't be happier with the outcome of our office fit-out project, and we wholeheartedly recommend APSS for any organization seeking to create an inspiring and efficient workspace. Their dedication, skill, and customer-centric approach make them a standout choice for office design and fit-out services.
