A quick look back into another article written on the success of Wylde IA designed SECO Tools, this time in On Office. The article itself discusses the projects, events and news in architecture and included projects such as RIBA and Arup’s report, which called for the digitalisation of the UK’s planning process and the use of community-produced data to create more responsive architecture. The December-January article also featured the merge of the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) with the Interior Design Association.
This is what the On Office had to say about our award winning project at SECO Tools headquarters, Alcester:
“Bristol-based interior design consultancy Wylde IA has won a global contract with Swedish brand Seco Tools after redesigning its UK headquarters. The initial project saw the firm renovate two former industrial units in Warwickshire into a modern workplace, incorporating open plan offices, a technology and production centre, breakout, meeting, exhibition an auditorium space, and a gym. The firm will now be tasked with the redesign of sites in Budapest, Brno, Bourges, Detroit and Dusseldorf.”
We had a fantastic response and the redesign proved extremely successful – here’s what Richard Jelfs, Managing Director of SECO Tools Ltd. had to say;
“The Team at Wylde IA delivered a truly outstanding environment for work, rest and play. They enabled us to move from a large, cellular 1960’s office block and manufacturing facility into a state-of-the-art 35,000ft² office and technology centre. They have transformed two rather dull, industrial steel sheds into the most amazing, agile and truly inspirational space.”
“Wylde IA has created an environment for agile working meaning employees can get away from their desks and work anywhere, including outside. We now have an engaged, active workforce who see the business as family. Staff welfare is at an all-time high and productivity has increased. Wylde IA understands the entire process and has incredible attention to detail…and they’re great fun to work with!”
The redesign of the other sites are underway and in progress. Keep your eyes peeled for the next SECO case study!
