Advanced was recognised for sales growth recently, after securing a ranking on The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table for the first time.

We relocated Advanced from multiple satellite offices to their new Midlands hub. Coming from their previous cramped and tired environments into something that reflects their brand as leading provider of software solutions. Modular Workspace created an urban commercial with services left exposed and by working with the natural concrete superstructure of the building.
The concept we have created for Advanced is based on a settings, spaces which work on a grid system and change; making way for teams and spaces to adapt over time whilst retaining a sense of excitement. Advanced were recruiting 60% new team to this site, the wow factor was important, creating an inspirational space which allows for innovative, creative thinking. Bright, bold graphics are positioned throughout the space, with a more muted executive feel to the main reception space. With the office split into wings, there was very little segregation between the departments, placing breakout spaces at either end of each wing with a variety of furniture, each with different ergonomic benefits, created versatile areas.
The centre-point of the office a collaborative hub of informal soft seating areas and meeting spaces with full audio visual presentation capabilities. Advanced wanted to take the opportunity to shift their business culture as part of the office move, to create a programme that supports the growth of their brand and individuals. Attracting fresh talented team members and retaining them was key to the long term growth.
