Client profile

Dell Boomi is a subsidiary of global computer technology giant - Dell.

In 2019, Boomi sough to bring their drive for helping their customers work faster & smarter to their workplace at Exeter's Science Park, revealing plans to expand the existing space for a new research and development center for excellence as part of East Devon District's expansion of the site.

Client challenge

Boomi knew that its current home in Exeter wasn't able to accommodate the future growth in their plans, but their search kept bringing them back to the science park where they already had an established presence.

The decision was made to expand into a 4,359-square-foot ground floor office, with an approved design that needed a specialist team to fit out the space. It was designated as a Cat B Fit Out, meaning that the works would need to follow a tight specification, using existing infrastructure when possible.

The brief had extensive requirements:

  • Installation of all mechanical engineering systems
  • New partitioning & ceiling grid system
  • Acoustic rafts & baffles in the open-plan working area
  • A meeting room suite with strengthened walls to support audio-visual equipment
  • A data room
  • A store room & print/copy area

Active solution

Active has had a strong relationship with Dell since 2010, having successfully delivered a number of relocations, dilapidations, storage installations, and a range of other project work in Dell's Bracknell EMEA headquarters, and the London space.

For the Exeter expansion, Active worked alongside Dell's management team and professional project & architecture teams to deliver the fit-out on time and to specification.

Active's dedicated team installed the M&E assets, baffles, and acoustic features throughout the open plan areas and meeting rooms. The team then painted the space & worked with key contractors to ensure Boomi's expectations were met.

As a technology business, Boomi need to move quickly and Active was ready to meet these demands, completing the project within a very short timeframe.

Benefits and results

The new workplace at Exeter Science Park matches Boomi's ambition to help the business to grow comfortably and reinforce its status as a world leader in IT integration.

The newly fitted out space is nurturing a fresh, quick and more collaborative way of working amongst Boomi employees. The open plan design has brought teams closer together, with breakout zones giving colleagues room to collaborate, and new kitchen spaces allowing them to eat together and socialise - registering a marked improvement on the previous space.

Boomi's team was impressed with the speed, consistency, and hands-on approach of Active's senior leadership team.
