Wylde IA was appointed by main contractor Area Sq as lead design consultant for the fitout of Mercer’s newly completed building in Woking. The new building brought teams together from different offices and the main focus was delivering a design that would create unity of these teams by encouraging collaborative working.
We facilitated a series of design reviews and workshops involving a design steering group made up of employees that would occupy the space. This process enabled Mercer staff to become involved in the design of their new offices and see it being influenced by their input. As a result, people felt more engaged with the new project and the programme of relocation.
