Reading-based document imaging company Kyocera Mita’s corporate ethos is strongly rooted in environmental responsibility and sustainability.
This is a message that has had increasing resonance in recent years, leading to a sustained period of commercial success for the company. As a result of this success Kyocera Mita took the decision to invest in a London presence for its UK operations. The aim was to create a multifunctional venue where Kyocera Mita products and credentials could be showcased to maximum effect.
As a showcase for Kyocera Mita’s environmental credentials, it was essential that the Kyocera Technology Suite was refurbished in as sustainable a way as possible. The first step in that process was identifying a partner that was willing to go the extra mile in offering us creative and environmentally sound options for the project.
Metric was very enthusiastic about the challenge of meeting the environmental standards we had set for the project. They proposed a solution that made the best possible use of the space, maximised natural light penetration and cleverly worked elements of our corporate identity into the layout.
One of the most important elements of the Technology Suite was its flexibility. We needed a space that could act as a conventional showroom for our printers, multifunction copiers and software solutions, whilst also offering the option to hold conferences, formal board meetings and more social events. Metric achieved this by adopting a modular approach which enables us to adapt the space to our exact requirements.
The Technology Suite is manned by just one full-time staff member, who is responsible for ensuring that it is set to the correct configuration for all user requirements. Metric ensured that the suite can be easily re-configured by a single person.
Throughout the project we were impressed with the efficient and flexible approach taken by Metric.
