Pets at Home
A modern new home for the 280 employees (and their pets!) based out of the Handforth location of Pets at Home
As the UK's leading pet care business, Pets at Home own a lot of real estate all over the country and one of their hubs is the three-storey building, Epsom House in Handforth.
With 280 staff based out of the location (and of course, multiple pets!), the new building was the perfect opportunity to create a productive and accessible workplace.
Pets at Home pride themselves on their value statement “We want to make sure that all our colleagues enjoy coming into work, and our teams are excellent at creating a fun, friendly workplace for everybody.” It was essential that workspaces were created for all colleagues; collaborative, quiet spaces and social settings were all equally important. Working with the design team at FireBox and the fitout experts at Egan Reid, the vision was laid out for their newest workspace.
Providing a quiet space for collaboration, our Railway Carriages are used throughout the space in varying colours and sizes. With integrated USB and power ports, collaboration is simple and effective. Our Snugglestor, set into the Storagewall, also provides a cosy seating alcove that can serve as an impromptu meeting space as well as a quiet thinking area.
Open plan areas need careful, detailed space planning to be adaptable and flexible to all working styles. As a solid, space-dividing solution, our Storagewall is a highly adaptable, modular system which can be easily reconfigured to suit the confines of any space. Not only is the storagewall relocatable, but the interchangeable modules it’s built of make it suited to the functionality of any space. For example, with the growing shift towards personal storage, a standard shelving module could be replaced in time with a locker module. Within their run of storagewall, Pets at Home have integrated a Mediastor, Recycle Points and Coat Storage.
