” I just wanted to thank James and his team for everything you have done. It was like a breath of fresh air when Rathbourne started on site. The work you have completed is fantastic and I am really proud of how the cafe @ Three Ways School is looking. I hope in the future we will get another chance to work together and of course you will be invited to our grand opening!” Amelia Hartley, Three Ways School, Bath
“Its hard to achieve the balance of having a great looking office, working conditions for all parties and not showing off or coming across as stuffy. Rathbourne have pulled it off for us.” Barry Newbury, Epoch
“The new Epoch office had the expected initial “wow” factor from staff when we first moved in but most importantly for me it has continued to provide the right environment for our fast paced business allowing plenty of space for quiet as well as collaborative work. The Epoch staff, I feel, are now far more connected with each other and the ambitions of the business in our new home.” Richard Barrington, Epoch
“Our business has an extremely exciting growth strategy in place over the next few years, and one that wouldn’t be anywhere near achievable without a head office that would accommodate that strategy from both a spatial, functional and aesthetic perspective.
Therefore, when it came to identifying a firm to oversee both the interior design and the entire office fit out, we placed a huge amount of importance on it, and were extremely selective throughout the procurement process. We spoke to a number of firms and right from the very first meeting, the solution offered by Rathbourne provided a sense of confidence and excitement that wasn’t available elsewhere.
From a design perspective, the concepts and final plan was exceptional. Our objective was to create an environment that would attract employees to want to work for us over and above our competition and one that would offer our existing team an exciting and enjoyable place to operate within in order to enhance performance. These expectations have been far exceeded and we’re already realising the benefits in terms of improved sales performance and the acquisition of new employees who are choosing to work with us in preference to other firms.
With regard to leadership, it was essential to us that the project impacted our day to day job as little as possible and yet would still be delivered to an extremely high standard. Rathbourne took control of the entire process and were phenomenal from both a planning and delivery perspective” Tom Hibberd, Panoramic Associates
