Spectris is a leading supplier of productivity-enhancing instrumentation and controls and they are based just down the road from us! We were delighted to have been invited by them to create a satellite office in Egham town centre for one of their project teams. The premises was to provide a short-term home but nonetheless it was of great importance that it should provide a comfortable and inspiring workplace. With this in mind we set about creating plans and turning them into a reality. The result is a bright, modern, open-plan environment which incorporates break-out and meeting spaces for collaborative and creative working. It is a far cry from where we started!!
The process is perhaps described best by our very happy client!
“Our experience with Metric Office has been seamless from start to finish. After going through quite a complex transaction in order to obtain the office space, it was daunting looking at the amount of work that would need doing to make it habitable.
We stumbled across Metric Office and they immediately came to the site to assess how they could help. Not only were they able to accommodate everything we had in mind, but they also made suggestions for additional things we could consider should we wish.
Peter was our main contact at Metric and he offered cost effective solutions, as well as advised ways for how we could reduce our costs in areas where certain things weren’t vital. Peter helped us choose colours, furniture, and was knowledgeable in not only the office planning side of things, but also the building works side.
Peter managed the project from start to finish, and communication has been impressive – it has often felt as though we are the only customers, as they are always available at the drop of a hat (though I know we are not!).
Peter coordinated furniture, electricians (for replacing lighting, radiators, testing all electrical equipment, fire safety installation), workmen (for fitting new toilets, kitchens, blinds, painting, building furniture), window specialists (for smash proof film on windows and frosting on internal glass) to name a few!
The Metric tradesmen have been a pleasure to deal with and have been very accommodating with fulfilling any last minute requests.
This was our first time working with Metric but we have since chosen to use them at our Head Office for removal services and also new furniture. It is safe to say that this was the easiest and smoothest part of this Office acquisition process.
I would thoroughly recommend the whole team at Metric Office and look forward to working with them further in the future.”
