As a well-respected and innovative office interior refurbishment and fit-out company, Oaktree was approached by International Food Infor-mation Services (IFIS) to complete an extensive office design and build project. Oaktree have worked alongside IFIS to design a completely unique office space which provides everything that the organisation requires, including an open-plan workspace. IFIS' identity was impor-tant in the creation of this office design, and we have ensured that the organisation's unique character remains in every aspect of the office interior.
The new office space consists of 2,700 square feet of ground, and we have worked to make the most of this area in the office's design, in-cluding the existing exposed wooden beams on the first floor, managerial offices and meeting rooms, along with an open and friendly recep-tion area. Oaktree are proud to say that the new workspace reflects the IFIS' “not-for-profit" personality, without compromising on efficiency.
A huge thank you to all at Oaktree for doing a great job. Everyone has been an absolute delight to work with, from our initial contact with Jay right through the design and move process and beyond. Perry and Chris took the time to get to know us so that we got a layout suited to how we work. Natalie encouraged us to be brave with splashes of colour on the walls that really lift our building! Chris managed our move in his usual cheerful, can do way, with no query being too small or too much hassle. Alex and team were lovely chaps who were happy to help us above and beyond the call of duty. We also liked that only the bare minimum went to landfill. I would happily use Oaktree again and cannot recommend their professional yet friendly approach and high standard of work enough.
