Team Factors

Team Factors' Challenge

Having advised and assisted companies with their finances for over 90 years, Team Factors is a business factoring company who works with a wide range of different companies, to help them achieve a reliable cash flow by releasing money tied up in unpaid invoices.

Team Factors were originally based in an old building which is part of the Frogmore Paper Mill complex in Aspley located in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire. They had acquired the ground floor space of another mill building in the same complex, which required our design and build services to bring the building up to the 21st Century and reflect their current branding.

Oaktree's Solution

Once the strip out was complete and the new windows were fitted, our team were able to start on site with the fit out.

The electrical team initially worked in close collaboration with the landlord to undertake a complete rewire of the electrical infrastructure including new distribution boards and lighting throughout. New data and perimeter trunking was installed, with AV points inserted into the new partitioning for the new TVs.

We installed a mixture of solid and glass partitions used to form new areas incorporating a boardroom, break out area and various office spaces. New flooring was laid throughout, comprising of carpeted office areas and vinyl flooring for the breakout space.

New furniture including bench desking, collaboration tables, a board room table, operator’s chairs and soft seating were provided and positioned by the Oaktree team. We also added finishing touches including neon lighting, logo door graphics and foliage further modernize the space.

The project was completed on time and on budget, with the team settling into their new space quickly and raring to go!

What Oaktree Delivered

Team Factors, a factoring company based in Hemel Hempstead had recently obtained a new office space in the Frogmore Paper Mill complex which is owned by the Apsley Paper Trail Trust. The new space was in a more desirable location then their previous building, now being adjacent to the Grand Union Canal.

The space had been recently vacated; however, the décor was tired and dated. Our initial requirement was to rip out the existing fittings and infrastructure to have a completely blank canvas to work with.

Prior to commencing the fit-out, all the windows needed to be replaced in keeping with the look and feel of the existing listed building. We also needed to carry out an entire electrical refit, including a complete rewiring.

There requirement for the client was to create a functional, fresh and contemporary space, suitable for hybrid and office-based working; including a new modern board room, private office area, large staff break out area, an open plan office area, hot desk and collaboration spaces, a welcome area and new furniture throughout.
