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 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.
