Large infrastructure firm, Network Rail, has over 7,000 staff members spread across several sites and regions. They wanted to create a central hub for their employees to create a sense of togetherness.

Working alongside office refurbishment specialists oktra we assisted with the fit out of Network Rail’s six storey hub and helped bring their vision to life. The design intent was to create a central hub for the consolidation of some of their teams, supporting collaboration and further integration between multi-disciplinary teams. With the plans for this starting just before the pandemic hit, the original design intent was altered to ensure the new office spaces were Covid secure and safe for employees to return to the office.

The same design principles were followed, but the layout was adapted slightly to accommodate for the relaxation of social distancing measures. The office layout features a spacious design with open plan desks, breakout facilities and back of house meeting suite which provides a more personal yet laid back meeting environment.

Our AC500 cloud ceiling systems were specified for this project with 600 x 600mm RB35 expanded mesh lay-in tiles. The frames were manufactured from aluminium to give a lightweight but durable structure.

With Network Rail needing access to the services above, our cloud system was ideal for their requirements. The AC500 ceiling systems were powdercoated in different colours, prink, green, yellow and red to complete the modern look and give a colourful and welcoming feel to the office.
