Wranx is an employee development platform, a technology-based training tool that puts learning in employees’ hands. Following consistently strong performance and to facilitate the continued growth of the business, Wranx relocated to its new office in Exchange Station, central Liverpool.
Wranx needed a space that was both creative and functional, designed to maximise the productivity of its employees. With more than 30 years’ experience and having worked with the company’s investment partner, William Currie Group, on several occasions in the past, Aztec’ was asked to deliver the project.
Aztec produced a modern design for the Wranx office, comprising open-plan desking for 20 employees along with a boardroom and two informal meeting rooms. Wranx wanted an open plan arrangement to encourage collaboration and knowledge sharing, but it was also important to provide a variety of spaces for its employees, whether to meet in private, find a quiet place to focus, or just to relax and contemplate.
Making the very most of the space available, Aztec created three glazed, partitioned meeting rooms along with a modern, feature wall kitchen and a large chalkboard wall.
Aztec’s in-house joinery workshop produced the kitchen units and worktops, along with modern feature furniture for each of the meeting rooms.
Aztec delivered the project on time and on budget, also working closely with an external M&E contractor to maintain a one-team approach. Aztec ordinarily delivers all projects in-house, using its own M&E team, however in this instance we were able to support the client in abiding by the landlord’s rules for the building, comfortable working in partnership with the landlord’s retained M&E contractor.
Despite the tight timeframe, the fit-out was delivered on schedule and to an outstanding standard, with Aztec having provided a full design and build solution.
Wranx is thriving in its new space, designed and delivered to allow all employees to deliver their best work in a stimulating. comfortable environment.
“We have worked with Aztec on several occasions on fit-out projects for our portfolio businesses, Wranx being one of them – an experienced team, Aztec provides both creative and considered design solutions aligned to the objectives of the business, and have always delivered projects on time and within budget. I’d highly recommend Aztec and I’m sure we’ll be working together again in the future.”
