Keltbray is a leading specialist Contractor in the world of Rail, Civil Engineering and Demolitions with over 1,000 staff in the U.K.
Since moving to their present Head Office back in 2010, they have enjoyed an incredible period of growth, reaching the Times ‘Top 250 UK Companies’, with an annual turnover nearing £300mn.
Staff growth coupled with acquisitions meant that their workplace was not succeeding in a number of important areas, such as brand portrayal, groupings and overall capacity.
Blue Jelly were retained to carry out a series of Workplace Consultancy activities which included workshops and space appraisals. These findings then generated ‘the design brief’, establishing a number of key success factors to be achieved.
The brief allowed us to develop concept space plans, 3D visuals and detailed budgets. These succeeded in illustrating how the 4 storey, 30,000 sqft building could deliver a much more dynamic and varied workplace to support their future plans.
We then commenced an intensive 20 week ‘multi-phased’ refurbishment project, whilst allowing over 150 staff to remain in occupation at all stages of the build.
The final outcome provides a working environment that intelligently reflects Keltbray’s needs, culture, brand, workflow and much more.
