International Food Information Service – Design & Build

Recently, Oaktree Interiors was successfully appointed to carry out the office interior design, and subsequent build, service for IFIS' new office in the Berkshire area. IFIS was established in the late 1960s and has continued to be a leading provider of food, beverage and other nutritional information across the world. IFIS is perhaps most well known for FSTA®, which is an extensive and specialised database for carefully selected content.

This database is used by researchers, industry practitioners and students from all over the world as a means of keeping themselves updated with the newest findings in their field. IFIS works alongside many household names, including Thomson Reuters and EBSCO, to provide the best information for the global food community.

IFIS are a not-for-profit charitable organisation and they are committed to improving the worldwide knowledge of the nutritional values of consumables. They are extremely proud of the opportunities that they provide researchers from developing countries, particularly through the Rsearch4Life programmes HINARI and AGORA.

Following on from the original contract signing in late 2014, Oaktree and IFIS have spent the past few months discussing the new office's requirement, along with finding the perfect office location. Oaktree Interior's Design & Contract's team carried out the site survey of the new office to provide completely accurate office space planning services, and consider how best to utilise the available space to meet IFIS' needs.

Once the perfect layout had been agreed upon, Oaktree delivered a presentation to IFIS and accompanied their representative to various furniture showrooms to present the proposed furniture first-hand. IFIS quickly agreed that Oaktree Interiors was the perfect company for them, and we are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the contract to complete the office interior design!

The Design Itself

The office space itself consists of two, self-contained office units which comprise of 2,700 square feet over ground, along with a single upper floor. When designing the workspace, it was obvious that IFIS were looking to take advantage of the most contemporary office design strategies. The main features of this office design are:

  • Secure Entrance Gates
  • Extensive On-Site Parking
  • An Impressive, Full-Height Reception Entrance
  • Comfort Cooling Units
  • Complete Perimeter Trunking With A Category 5e Network
  • Stylish, Exposed Beams Throughout The First Floor
  • A Contemporary Kitchenette For The Utmost Convenience

The interior fit-out also includes a completely new boardroom and meeting room, manager's offices, an open and welcoming reception area, intuitive open-office designs and completely new furniture throughout. IFIS made it clear that they were looking to create an environment which possessed a fresh and modern aesthetic and offered plenty of space for subsequent expansion.
