"We have a lot of specialist knowledge and expertise within the business and needed an environment that encourages our staff to share it, working smarter as one team. " Debbie Bathgate, Lens Production Manager

The brief

Rodenstock needed to reconfigure its UK operations when major parts of the manufacturing facility moved to another site. Rodenstock’s initial brief was to mix elements of the manufacturing with the office-based departments and required a design and build supplier who could take on this challenge.

Rodenstock needed a long term interior design solution that would grow with the business and create a contemporary open space evoking a feeling of community, bringing the office and manufacturing teams closer together.

The scope of works included reception, open plan office space, meeting rooms, toilets, kitchen and canteen facilities.

The results

Inspired by Rodenstock’s branding in its retail shops and exhibition spaces, Claremont provided an office design that allows for future business growth and enhances staff collaboration. Claremont has helped Rodenstock to create a journey through the space by keeping the manufacturing and office elements of the business separate, a change to the original brief.

The office flows from the reception area through to the open plan and individual offices, meeting rooms and staff kitchen. The office features Rodenstock’s brand colours of red, black, white and grey as well as the company’s artwork throughout, especially in the corridor that leads both the office and manufacturing staff to their working environment.

The office design uses glass to allow natural light into the centre of the space. This also opens up the corridors and office suite, making the space more interactive, with different settings for meetings.

 

We have a lot of specialist knowledge and expertise within the business and needed an environment that encourages our staff to share it, working smarter as one team. We’re confident the new office environment will deliver that in spades.
