The company’s relocation to even larger premises at Lymedale Business Park in Newcastle-under- -Lyme, has been driven by Strategi’s ambitious plans for development, which has already seen the team grow from two, to the current team of twenty in line with the company’s continued diversification into new service areas.
This latest move is of particular significance to the company, as the management team took the decision to actually purchase their new headquarters to accommodate their future growth ambitions and to give them the freedom to create their own contemporary work environment.
To assist with the purchase of the building, funding has been secured from the European Regional Development Fund who recognised Strategi’s potential for future development. Support for the deal was received from HSBC, Mitten Clarke and Freeths (Stoke).
Strategi officially took ownership of their new headquarters on November 29th, which marks the beginning of several months of extensive building work to transform the building.
The new office space will showcase the talents of Strategi’s team of designers, who have been responsible for creating all of the design concepts for the interior layout and furnishings.
These plans include a dedicated customer zone, a presentation/training area and space for social events.
The area for the team has been designed to enable people to easily hot desk, as well as providing break out and quiet areas for staff to work in or hold meetings.
The Design Team has, of course, added lots of creative and quirky touches from a digital ceiling to the use of contemporary and vibrant furniture.
Wendy Dean, Founder and Managing Director commented: “I believe that purchasing our own building and being able to create a modern and creative environment for our team and customers is an incredibly important next step in Strategi’s journey. We love it when our customers visit us and we want to ensure that we give them the best possible experience.
“At Strategi we have always placed the wellbeing of our team at the heart of everything we do, as we recognise the huge contribution that they make towards the success of the business.
“And that’s why it made perfect sense to me, that it be our team that actually take the lead on designing our new office space.
“The building that we have bought has provided us with a blank canvas to really imprint Strategi’s personality on and one which will reflect our culture and values.
“I can’t wait to be able to welcome our friends and clients to our new offices which should be ready in the New Year – watch this space!”
