At a time when many organisations are asking what their office space will look like in the years ahead, at Quorum Park we believe that buildings should be able to adapt to provide occupiers with the solutions they need.
One of the biggest rewards of relocating your workplace to Quorum Park, is the unique opportunity that it presents to create something special. Lying ready and waiting behind four walls of glass is a blank canvas space, in which you can turn your company’s vision of the perfect working environment into a reality.
Throughout the park we have buildings which offer large, flexible, open-plan floorplates, which have been specifically designed to give incoming occupiers the opportunity to customise the space to their own specific requirements.
Not only can this be done at the very start of a company’s tenure at Quorum, but should the way in which the space is used then change, it can be adapted and modified as personnel, technology and work patterns evolve.
With raised access floors, air conditioning and extensive glazing, buildings such as Q11 and Q12 offer tenants the ability to design a fit-out that reflects the size and working ethos of their team rather than asking the team to adapt to the building in which they work.
The face behind the majority of fit-out projects undertaken at Quorum over the past 15 years is Jonathan Ryder, director of NEBS Projects. Jonathan, who is based on-site at Neon, has designed and project managed fit-outs for companies such as SSCL, Ramboll, Concept and NRG in the past twelve months alone.
Jonathan said: “The way in which we use our office space is changing more than ever, but the buildings at Quorum offer the perfect platform to allow organisations to reinvent their workplace. Not only have they been designed to offer high levels of energy efficiency but also for significant adaptability and this is obviously an important consideration for dynamic organisations looking to the future.
“Over the last 5 years we have seen a distinct relaxation in the workplace, and this is perfectly illustrated in the popularity of the suites that have been created in Neon, which offer a more informal and collaborative working environment.
“Office designs and layouts will undoubtedly evolve further over the next five years, but at Quorum we have the advantage of flexible buildings that can accommodate whatever the client requires.”
NRG, who relocated to Quorum from Newcastle city centre last summer, occupy a 9,400 sq.ft suite on the ground floor of Neon. The fit-out was designed by NEBS Projects to create a contemporary, inspirational working environment which was developed with the future needs of NRG’s clients and candidates in mind.
The spacious and bright open plan office space allows the specialist and executive search division of NRG to work collaboratively with teams from their recruitment process outsourcing business greenbean. Modern kitchen facilities, private interview rooms and client meeting areas perfectly complement both the business’ brand and vision.
Mark Smales, finance director of NRG added “Relocating to Neon gave us a blank canvas to design a workspace to future proof and grow our business. Even before lockdown, working practices had been shifting towards providing both staff and clients with more flexibility and improved technology offerings. The design of the Neon building, along with the experience of Jonathan and his team, allowed us to build a secure and multipurpose office base with excellent shared facilities”
