Case Study


Zund enlisted our help to relocate their office from St Albans to Letchworth due to their rapid growth in the UK.


Their new home required a full Cat A Strip out and refit to meet regulations. Watch our video and read about how we helpfed Zund overcome challenges and create a stunning office space.

Our Clients' Challenge

Founded in 2016, 5Values is a forward-thinking recruitment company headquartered in Bristol. Their mission is to ‘power brands who support, find and showcase the people who make technology a force for good in the world’.  Committed to inclusivity, sustainability, authenticity, attentiveness, and consideration, 5Values encompasses several brands, including 5V Video, 5V Media, and 5V Tech, providing talent solutions across various industries.


In late 2022, 5Values entrusted Oaktree to transform their new offices in Bristol into an inviting and vibrant space. The primary goal was to create an environment that exuded positivity and creativity, integrating a blend of colours and fun elements throughout the design.

Oaktree's Solution

The scope of the project included the development of several distinct spaces:

  • Two Boardrooms: Equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual installations, these boardrooms were designed to facilitate seamless in-person and virtual meetings, a crucial feature given the popularity of online interactions due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. To reinforce 5Values’ branding and corporate identity, we installed an eye-catching purple neon sign, depicting their logo and corporate colour, creating a cohesive and recognisable atmosphere.
  • Small Meeting Room: This room was thoughtfully designed for one-on-one discussions and interviews, ensuring privacy and comfort.
  • Tea Point: We created a designated area for refreshments and informal gatherings, fostering collaboration and teamwork among employees.
  • Podcast Space: Acknowledging the importance of podcasts in 5Values’ operations, we created a custom-built recording and filming space. The room was acoustically treated to minimise sound leakage, maintaining a peaceful environment in the office.
  • Breakout Areas: Funky and cool, these spaces were strategically placed throughout the office to provide employees with opportunities to unwind and recharge during the workday. They encouraged open communication, enabling team members to build strong relationships and enhance their collaborative skills.
  • Open Plan Desking Area: Designed for flexibility and productivity, the open plan desking area encourages a dynamic and engaging work environment.


The new office space not only aligns perfectly with 5Values’ ethos and identity but also fosters a positive and inspiring atmosphere that resonates with their team. Upon project completion, the client was delighted with the outcome and Oaktree’s performance. Rick Towers, the Managing Director at 5Values, expressed his appreciation with a glowing testimonial.

What Oaktree Delivered

The collaboration between 5Values and Oaktree resulted in a remarkable office fit-out project. By infusing colour, vibrancy, and creativity, we crafted a space that was not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional. 5Values’ commitment to inclusivity, sustainability, authenticity, attentiveness, and consideration now shines through every corner of their new Bristol office, affirming their position as a leading force in the recruitment industry.

Oaktree Interiors partnered with us at 5Values to create a bespoke new office for our business that looked sleek, modern and spacious. From the very beginning, they stood out as a company that truly cared about the entire project, not just the financial aspect.

If you’re looking for an interior design company that goes the extra mile, Oaktree is the perfect choice. Their competitive pricing, genuine interest in your project, innovative ideas, and outstanding team make them a top recommendation. Working with them was an absolute pleasure, and I couldn’t be happier with the beautiful office they created.”
