Based in Stoke-on-Trent, Miansomo Investments financially supports business startups, growing businesses & local charities. It was founded by Michael Hughes who has a profound experience in finance, representing some of the UK’s most recognised companies. Using this experience Michael recently set up an office in Stoke-on-Trent to act as a hub for investments made in the community.
Keen to achieve a welcoming & fresh space, Miansomo Investments approached Bullock & Bosson to create a meet and greet environment where they could invite local businesses & individuals they support to hold meetings in a professional environment.
LOCATION – STOKE-ON-TRENT, STAFFORDSHIRE
PROJECT TYPE – OFFICE REFURBISHMENT
SECTOR – FINANCE
FOCUS – WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT
Early consultation discussions made it clear to us that the space had to be special; it needed to be an environment that was aesthetically impressive to local businesses & individuals but also comfortable and pleasant environment to support its staff in their day-to-day activities.
When meeting on site for the first time discussions involved the surrounding environment i.e. walls were going to be light but office features needed to be sharp. The introduction of the rough and weathered Nebraska Oak MFC Finish provided a striking rustic appearance. This alongside the black frames fitted Miansomo’s brand style & values to a point.
Desks in the offices were designed to be large as well as space-efficient with bench desk configurations being used in the upstairs office, giving each valued colleague their own space to work comfortably.
Fliptop power modules were cut-out & installed in boardroom tables to allow for charging points and media outlets to enable digital meetings or presentations on TVs to be displayed. Boardroom tables were supplied on both floors to enable Miansomo need to hold multiple meetings that can potentially go on for long periods of time.
Ian Turner from Bullock & Bosson comments “we were successful in forging a high-performing office space for the team at Miansomo Investments. They seeked a space where they could feel excited to welcome businesses they support and I’d say we achieved that”.
In the final analysis Michael Hughes commented that he “Couldn’t be happier with how it looks and how well the guys worked!”.
