"Claremont really understood our vision and has created something quite special - a space that supports our working practices brilliantly and brings previously disparate teams together in a creative and collaborative way. This working environment is truly unique and further proof that we’re at the forefront of the digital marketplace." Alison Ross, IT & Project Director

The brief

Claremont’s relationship with Auto Trader began with EOS workplace consultancy, helping the business to understand how much space it needed and which of its shortlisted buildings would provide the optimum working environment.

Claremont were asked to provide the full interior design and build solution, complete with furniture and audio visual.

The results

The workplace has been designed to support Auto Trader’s squads, or departments, and comprises unallocated workstations and a plethora of social, collaborative, touch-down and one-to-one spaces to support the diverse needs of those within it.

As an adopter of agile working, Auto Trader displays its working processes visually and so write-on surfaces and touchscreen media walls have been used in abundance.

Even the six specially-modified vehicles, craned in over three days, have been treated with a write-on finish to support this ethos and double up as informal meeting rooms too.

The focus on industrial, quirky, British and playful details gives the office design lasting impact.

A full pipe skate ramp gives reception the wow factor and frames the view to Deansgate. A special license was also granted to use Terry Davey’s iconic Haynes Manual illustrations as wall graphics which can be coloured in.
