We are delighted to share with you our latest project which includes expanding our Nottingham office by 15,000sq ft and a two-storey refurbishment.
The new-look office transforms our headquarters into a stylish and creative hub where our employees can work, socialise and relax. With newly designed zones, every aspect has been carefully created to not only optimise the entire space, but to reflect the vibrant Baxter Freight brand and culture.
The brand-new coffee house makes for an impactful welcome area, with barista-quality coffee and a striking, custom-made pavilion, adding to the fresh and modern Scandinavian design.
The new lounge area brings luxury and serenity. Employees can take a break or catch up with colleagues in a more relaxed environment. With sliding partitions, the area can be opened up to make a great space to hold large-scale meetings.
A huge table and vibrant orange stool configuration is the star feature in the collaboration zone. This is the place for the team to come together to share ideas, innovate and spark their creativity.
The newly refurbished kitchen is equally as funky with an industrial edge including a black and grey colour scheme, a brick-effect wall and quirky lighting. The reimagining of the space creates more space to seat our growing team.
The refurbishment project, managed by Pinfold Projects, also boasts a fresh new look to existing meeting rooms and large open plan office. New meeting rooms and offices have been created and the entire ground floor has been transformed into a dedicated sales floor which can seat up to 90 members of the Account Manager, Key Account and Business Development Manager team.
Acquiring the space was also well-timed in light of our Covid-secure return to work plan. Our entire team, consisting of 80 employees, can now gradually return to work with an abundance of extra space to accommodate for new social distancing measures.
This expansion is key in helping us achieve our ambitious growth plans to reach 120 members of staff and turnover £30m in the coming years. It also demonstrates our commitment to investing in our staff by creating an inspiring and modern working environment.
Managing Director and co-founder, Peter Isler comments: “We believe working in a vibrant and fantastic looking environment will go a long way in helping our team be the best they can be.
“By continually reinvesting in our business, whether that be by expanding our premises, training or mentoring, we are attracting and keeping some of the best people in the freight industry – the very people who enable us to continue delivering the market-leading customer service we are known for.”
Peter concludes, “The completed refurbishment project marks the next stage of our journey as we look to take our business to the next level and ultimately deliver more for our customers, suppliers and our staff.”
