Office design & fit-out
COEL worked with Archant to fulfil a brave and bold vision; to consolidate 3 working levels of their building into one spacious and sophisticated, collaborative working floor.
Space planning was key and eye-catching furniture was thoughtfully choreographed to create clearly defined working zones.
A natural colour palette was adopted depicting soft hues of calming grey, green and blue with the occasional illuminating pop of sunshine yellow.
Thoughtful positioning of sleek and elegant task lighting influences and aids specific requirements.
These dynamic design elements combine to set the stage of this modern and appealing workplace.

"After a careful selection process COEL were chosen to partner with Archant to provide Design and Build services for our new office space In Norwich. As part of ongoing changes within Archant we took the bold step to reduce our office footprint from 85,000 sqft to 29,000 sqft and embrace a radically different way of working. COEL’s in-house skill set and experience in agile working environments provided us with the comfort that the changes implemented were in line with our strategies and company goals. I was impressed with the level of commitment from the whole COEL team in delivering the project on time and on budget, despite the majority of the project programme falling in the middle of the Covid-19 lock down. Our staff love their new office space and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend COEL." Dee Willmott, Chief People and Transformation Officer for Archant
