Active were engaged to complete the redesign and fit out of a new office space.
Type of project:
Design & Build
Finsbury Circus, London
4Most Credit Risk Consultancy are one of Europe's fastest growing businesses and UK's largest credit risk consultancy based at Salisbury House, an impressive grade II listed building in the heart of Finsbury Circus.
As one of Europe's fastest growing businesses and UK's largest credit risk consultancy, our client felt that their office needed a modern refresh. To follow their mission statement of 'our people are our biggest asset' the team at 4 Most relocated to a new office in a business hub of London, and asked us to revamp the space to provide their staff with a fresh atmosphere and collaborative working environment.
4 Most had a strict deadline due to the lease expiring on their existing offices, which presented unique challenges while under Covid restrictions. Their original space was to be handed back to the landlord, so a full relocation of staff and furniture to their new office was required as well as a complete dilapidation.
The team at 4 Most strongly values their staff wellbeing, and set the brief to create a comfortable, relaxed, and motivating workplace where colleagues could gather for social events and unwind away from their desks.

Benefits and results
With strategic space planning, Active removed the existing meeting rooms to convert the somewhat enclosed office into an open plan space to allow to more mingling and collaboration amongst the staff.
Working closely with the 4 Most's branding guidelines and style, we went for a big and bold option for the wall paint, utilising geometric colour blocking and tropical wallpaper to add a twist to the conventional office environment. We worked with the existing desk set-up and added a few more warmer touches to the space, such as soft seating, accessories, and artwork to create a more homely atmosphere, and inject a bit of the company's personality into the workplace.
To hit the comfortable and relaxed portion of the brief, Active integrated a social space into the planned tea point, including bright and bold furnishings, ornaments and a flexible shuffleboard game to bring energy and vibrancy into the office.
"I really like how open the office is now, it has made it so much easier and relaxed for me to work with my team. My favourite area is the social space, it's made it so much easier for me to come back to the office since working from home!"
