When I say I love my job, friends will often quiz me as to why. It’s not hard to explain that for me I have the ultimate job; meeting people, listening to what they want from their new office, looking at concepts with them, meeting new suppliers and seeing their latest ideas, creating something wonderful, new and exciting and ultimately seeing the complete transformation of an office space. That moment when the office fitters have left and you can stand back and look at the change, the transformation…that for me sums up why I love my job!
I work with many different clients and clichéd though it is, no two clients are alike. I have worked with a lot of schools for instance, and even there, every school is different. Some are looking to refit a small office space and with the increasing demands on schools meaning every scrap of space is precious, there’s little chance of the office being able to bag some additional space. We have to work with what we have. Challenging as this can be at times, in a strange way, it’s even more satisfying. You take a cramped space which has evolved over the years into an office which simply can’t function effectively anymore and with the right colours, furniture and clever layout it can transform the lives of those who work there.
