NEX is a financial technology company aimed to offer customers better ways to execute trades and manage risk. After outgrowing their existing space, the company moved into a new office space in Bristol, designed by workplace design firm Interaction.
“With their lease ending at Temple Studios and the team outgrowing their existing space, NEX chose a new 7,946 sq ft refurbished space at Programme. They tasked Interaction with the CAT B design and fit-out – the first at the landmark development in Bristol. Having moved from a cramped and bland space, the brief for the project revolved around designing and creating an inspirational space that reflected the reputation of the firm, as well as the Programme development. Vital factors included enhancing collaboration and flexibility, helping the team to retain and attract new talent, and making a great first impression for clients. After 6 weeks of creative design, effective project management and hard work, NEX don’t just have a space to be proud of, but they have a workplace like no other, in one of Bristol’s latest commercial developments. By combining effective project and site management with original design, the result exceeds what the NEX team asked for. Not only is it a wow-factor workplace that will help the team to attract and retain talent in a competitive Bristol tech market, but it has set the standard for other office designs within Programme, Bristol, and the wider South West. The key features include a modern, sleek design complete with LED lights that give a unique “tech” feel, a cray supercomputer replica that doubles up as a seating area, an array of places to work, including tiered seating, acoustic booths and resimercial-style seating areas, a collaborative team building table in the centre of the workplace and a breakout space games area,” says Interaction
