Our full turnkey project saw us transform the 16,500 sqft 200-person Quality Control department for our historic and BAFTA award-winning client, Codemasters. Working closely with our design partners, our works transformed their building into high specification, luxury office accommodation which included a new gymnasium and bathroom refurbishment.
Our CAT A and CAT B works briefly consisted of interior design, solid and glazed partitioning, flooring, ceilings, bespoke joinery, acoustic treatments, kitchens, tea points and a complete new M&E installation including state of the art LED lighting, as well as the complete furniture supply and install.
A bespoke pit-stop flooring graphic guides you through their newly refurbished entrance where you’re met by a full-size, bold red 3D racing driver Air Fix. This particularly stands out against the specified concrete effect wallpaper that carries through to the adjoining meeting room. Codemasters’ branding is continued with a manifestation of their logo and tyre track detailing to the glazed screen surround.
The meeting room’s table is integrated with PRISM power modules, providing additional functionality and maintaining uncluttered cabled management with a flush closed surround. The contoured and quilted navy upholstery to the seating offers added comfort.
Continuing Codemasters’ branding, striking full-height live sport graphics feature to the Ground Floor’s main office space, and the diffused carpet tile flooring mimics their colourways whilst offering an element of wayfinding throughout the open space.
Back-to-back Pyramid Steel desking was specified with mounted screen dividers upholstered in fabric consisting of 100% recycled PET. All workstations include above and under desk power modules which feed into umbilical cable management systems for both safety and aesthetic purposes.
Their social area features a newly fitted tea point with contrasting deep blue and grey oak unit fronts and a white matte chevron tiled surround. The suspended and sound-absorbing acoustic wall divider is crafted from 100% recycled PET, giving environmental benefits with added functionality. Codemasters’ branding is again cleverly noted in the red and black framework of the specified breakout table stools.
Alongside ceiling works, partitioning and soundbloc layering, our works to the new gymnasium included the supply and fit of Burmatex carpet tiles in jet black, cherry red and coal grey to highlight the different zones and workout stations within the space.
Suspended acoustic panels featuring bespoke laser cut designs were specified to create a semi-permanent space division to the First Floor open office space. An all-white 3D Air Fix acts as the boundary between the office space and the newly fitted tea point.
The flexible collaborative / scrum area is purposely differentiated by the change in floor tiles and protected by an acoustic panelled central band to the perimeter. A mixture of high and low level tables and stools were specified to provide employees autonomy over where and how different tasks take place. A cohesive branding experience is continued through alternating black and red frameworks, as seen to the Ground Floor’s breakout area.
Our works also included the design, manufacture and installation of bespoke seating booths inclusive of ‘net’ acoustic feature screens. Codemasters’ statement red is seen in the upholstered back and seat pads which makes a bold statement against the dark grey desking, wall paint and collection of suspended lamps.
Our project has provided Codemasters’ with a fully agile workplace that boasts a great focus on employee wellbeing and visitor experience. The clever use of colours, graphics and 3D designs really brings their brand to life. To find out more about the project and furniture specified, please contact Ultimate.
