Starting in June 2016, Oaktree Interiors will be creating a new office design in Watford for Tusker Direct. We were originally employed by Tusker to design a refurbishment for their offices in 2013 but they have since outgrown that location.
Tusker made contact with us at the start of the year through our website and explained their situation and how they wanted to proceed. We enjoyed a great working relationship with Tusker previously and are pleased to be able to continue working with them at their new offices in Croxley Green Business Park, Watford throughout 2016.
We were asked by Tusker to present our ideas for how we felt they should move ahead with their new fit-out and what we could do to help them. The new offices would have 28,000 sq ft. of space which would require considerable planning. We demonstrated that we had a true understanding of their company's business, brand and future aspirations. Tusker have trusted that,with our knowledge and experience, we will design something ideally suited to their needs.
We agreed to split the build into phases due to the large amount of work we are going to be required to complete. The first phase began at the start of June 2016 and includes creating an open-plan office for 80+ staff with new meeting and boardrooms. We provided advice on the placement of their desks and other furniture to make the most out of their space available. It's also very important to Tusker to have a large recreation area to encourage employee interaction and collaboration which we built into the design.
Phase two will occupy the adjoining suite, which will be connected through the breakout area. Tusker's aim was to create an area allowing employees and visitors to make telephone calls in private. We managed to come up with a simple, yet rather retro solution of installing traditional telephone boxes. This will provide the right amount of functionality whilst creating a focal point within the room.
Tusker Direct is one of the UK's leading providers of salary sacrifice car schemes and company fleet solutions. They provide services to some of the country's largest companies and government organisations including Airbus and The National Lottery.
The scheme allows an employee to use a portion of their salary before it's taxed in exchange for a brand new car. This allows the employee to enjoy a new vehicle without paying any deposit or needing to fork out for road tax, insurance, MOT's or other costs. All the driver needs to do is pay for the fuel.
Tusker launched their car salary sacrifice scheme in 2008 and now manage a fleet of over 13,000 vehicles and have an annual revenue in excess of £100million. This fleet is expected to increase by over 30% by the end of the year.
As an industry leader, Tusker were rewarded for their hard work and excellence by winning the prestigious Business Excellence Award in 2015. A further 4 accolades were achieved last year including winning the Car Scheme Provider Of The Year award in September.
We are proud of our track record at designing, installing and refurbishing office spaces. We understand why having an attractive office environment is so important in today's world and a happy workforce is also a productive one.
