PACT is one of the UK's leading Voluntary Adoption Agencies, helping hundreds of children each year by placing them in loving families. PACT also runs two main community projects, Alana house foundation and Bounce Back 4 Kids. Working alongside Volunteer Project Manager, Phil Lewis, and PACT's Clerk of Works, Deborah Hardy, the Active team were brought in to carry out a range of refurbishment works.
The first phase of the project included the increased soundproofing of three meeting rooms in unit 2 as well as repairing water damage and redecoration works throughout. Storage was also built for both the crèche and meeting area.
The second phase involved unit 7 where we removed two offices from the top floor to create one open plan space to enable collaboration between the two teams. We also stripped out the ground floor to create a new reception area and two soundproofed meeting rooms. In addition to this we refurbished the disabled toilet and kitchen which had also been affected by water damage and created a new board room/ training room.
The result was a new open space on the top floor where teams could collaborate and work together. Sound proofed meeting rooms were also created as well as a board room/ training room where staff could gather and host board meetings/events.
In their words:
“We worked with Active to down-size our office space. The creative office designs that Active produced enabled us to make the best use of the space we had available and the finished result included an impressive reception area, meeting rooms and board room. Feedback from staff and visitors has been very positive so a great result! The team of people we had on site were friendly, extremely hardworking and always willing to assist which helped a great deal. Thank you!"
