“We turned surfboards into coffee tables and installed a real ski lift in a chill out area for staff to enjoy.”

Beach huts, ski lifts and deck chairs all brought the sunshine and snow feel to WorkBox’s installation for a travel company.

We were selected by award winning holiday firm Premier Holidays, to fit out their new head office in Cambridge in June 2016. WorkBox won the project through a competitive selection process including detailed designs and cost proposals.

The winning design provided Premier Holidays with an innovative, fun and exciting new office environment. Key features included a staff restaurant with beach huts, deck chairs and ski lifts for recreation, palm tree oasis areas for drinks and printing as well as additional concepts to emphasize the client’s core activity and give the staff a great place to work. Our team also worked on partitioning, flooring, power and data installations as well supplying new furniture and meeting / break out space.

Director at WorkBox, Stuart Thacker, said: “This was an exciting and creative project to work on, turning surfboards into coffee tables and installing a real ski lift in a chill out area for staff to enjoy. We were very pleased with the end results.”
