Firmenich is a Global flavours and fragrancing house with 6,000 employees in 63 territories.

With a history spanning over 120 years, the business had acknowledged that their workplace no longer supported the aims of the ‘One Firmenich’ vision for the future.

Over a period of 6 months, Blue Jelly worked with both the local and Global real estate teams toward a new workplace concept that would support the various team activities.

The scheme was then benchmarked in the market place to ensure best value before Blue Jelly were engaged to implement the concept.

Working within an occupied building, we co-ordinated with the local team to develop a phased programme of works that maintained business continuity and minimised disruption.

The result includes facilities such as phone booths, studies, informal meeting pods and an evaluation area.

The new workplace has been extremely well received by both the user groups and global management. We have subsequently provided design services to implement areas of the design into their Belgium site.

Here’s to the sweet smell of success!
