“Part of their process is to take clients to a variety of suppliers; this process allows clients to touch and feel the furniture and I found the whole process very useful and enjoyable. Throughout this process Phoenix Interiors were very patient with me, and gently guided me down the right path.”

Uncle Buck Finance LLP’s key business is financial management. Having occupied a series of “huts” in Biggin Hill, the business had outgrown the facilities. It was also very evident that recruitment and staff retention, allied with the desire to expand were strong motivating factors to consider a relocation to modern premises.
Having been appointed after several submissions from other design and construction firms, the objective was to produce an environment that reflected the business objectives, and to have an office that would assist in the attraction and retention of staff, creating a first-class setting. With a young dynamic staff, the creation of a “front of house” space designed in a modern, contemporary, cafe bistro style was a priority. The adoption of this type of design would allow operators to relax away from their desks. Private offices for executives were created, but the majority of the office space was designed to be open plan.
The scope of works included a new break out and a large tea point, creating meeting rooms, supplying new office desking, seating and meeting room furniture.
The project, after a considerably lengthy pre-contract period took six weeks to complete.
Post project, the client reports that acceptance of offers for full time occupation has increased, allied with staff productivity.
