Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc. is an Agricultural Cooperative that is owned by more than 700 cranberry and grapefruit growers throughout the United States, Canada and Chile. Formed in 1930, Ocean Spray is now the world's leading producer of cranberry juices, juice drinks and dried cranberries and is the best-selling brand in the North American bottled juice category. The cooperative's cranberries are currently featured in more than a thousand great-tasting, good-for-you products in over 100 countries worldwide.
When Ocean Spray relocated their International Services Offices to Lily Hill House, Ascot, we were the natural choice to design and build their new offices given our regular and ongoing works for other companies in this fabulous listed building in rural Berkshire, which has developed into a thriving self contained business centre.
The look and feel of the office was to be young, fresh and exciting to compliment the company's working ethos and marketing strategy.
Full height glazing was used to create spacious and bright meeting rooms and offices, complimented by full height oak veneer doors. A vibrant area was created for training and brain storming meetings that overlooks the fantastic grounds of Lily Hill Park. An emphasis was put on the company's marketing material for designs and full wall graphics were created depicting the fresh crisp cranberries and then applied to the walls injecting a vivid dash of colour all around. Designated areas to feature displays of products were also formed. Power and data were presented to the required positions by installing a 'power track' system and floor boxes beneath the raised access floor; this also gives the flexibility to adapt their layout, if required in the future with minimal disruption.
The build is looking great; we are really pleased with the speed and standard of the team involved.
