Agricultural and Horticultural Development Board

As workplace consultants to the AHDB we created and optimised their new HQ in Warwickshire.

Having undertaken several staff workplace surveys and studies, we interviewed 30% of the 300-strong staff in order to inform workplace change, new methods of working, improved systems and to seek feedback to the proposed design brief concepts.

Being single tenants, the AHDB were able to maximise the central atrium and reception spaces (that would form interconnecting shared spaces in the event of multi-tenancy) and create a combined reception, waiting and coffee bar operation at ground floor and open kitchen-servery space at first floor.

The result is an open and inclusive space with equality of accommodation for departments whilst providing unique identities for different functions.
