Office Principles has delivered the new headquarters of a fast growing logistics software company in the Midlands.

The leading office interior design consultancy has designed and refurbished 5,000 sq ft of first floor office space at Unit 2, Topaz Business Park in Bromsgrove, on behalf of Vigo Software.

Office Principles has created a flexible and interchangeable open plan workplace, characterised by its use of cutting edge technology including touchscreens, write on walls and curved OLED displays.

The design takes inspiration from the character of Vigo Software's original headquarters at The Old Forge in Redditch, with a series of dedicated spaces for working, meeting and socialising.

High-spec partitioning and sliding doors divide the workspace into flexible zones featuring traditional deskspace, informal meeting areas and breakout rooms, and a scrum area with tiered seating.

Employee wellbeing is at the heart of Office Principle's design, including a green wall and biophilic design and planting, with staff encouraged to use lockable storage and male and female showers.

The fun workspace also features corrugated metal panels in the reception and welcome area as a play on a freight container, reflecting the company's heritage in developing transport software and hardware for logistics, haulage, warehouse and pallet network businesses.

The completed project has coincided with Vigo Software's brand relaunch. This brand refresh, new website and office relocation signifies a springboard to the next stage of growth for the business and it's customers.

We are very pleased to have delivered Vigo Software۪s modern and exciting new HQ. Vigo is an ambitious business that is continually developing, so it needs a flexible space that will be able to facilitate its ongoing expansion. This is a high-tech workspace that very much looks to Vigo۪s future but does so in a way that retains the sense of community, collaboration and connectivity that have been the cornerstone of the business since its inception.

Tina Batham, Managing Director

The success of the business and growth meant we had outgrown our current premises. The location of our new HQ is in a perfect central location but we also needed the interior to reflect the innovative business we are today. Office principles simply nailed the brief and created a workspace that not only allows our team to work more efficiently but provides a fun and inspirational environment for all of the team at Vigo.
