New offices for design group


The head office of The breathe Group which is currently at Quayside in Cambridge, is moving to custom built premises this Summer. 

The group has been responsible for the entire project, from the architectural design, the air conditioning, and project management through to interior design and provisions – and is destined to be a showpiece. 

Whilst the final design is being kept under wraps, there is a real buzz amongst the staff.

As part of its expansion plans, breathe has also opened a Peterborough office and recruited a dedicated team to manage the area. Business is booming, and several new contracts have been won in Peterborough city centre.

Clients in the area include Thomas Cook, Churchill’s, Travelex and e-Research and a recent mammoth project in London has also resulted in Romeike, the media intelligence company appointing breathe to renovate its Peterborough offices.

Romeike’s London office was almost gutted, and new IT cabling, climate control systems, windows and lighting were needed before the refurbishment could even begin.

The logistics of the project were incredibly involved, and work had to continue as normal throughout the 24-week project. Employees and their belongings were moved from floor to floor with the minimum of disruption, and because of the shared access, breathe had to plan the logistics of the refurbishment very carefully in order to minimise the impact on third parties.

The refit has changed how Romeike manage the business. Space planning was focused around job function and whilst the majority of space is open plan, individual glass offices with a corporate manifestation were built on all floors, for use by management and for general staff and client meetings.

Communication among staff has been greatly improved and departments have become more productive.

‘This project could have been a logistical nightmare’, said Les Kelly, managing director, ‘but it has been run incredibly well, and smoothly. breathe took responsibility for the entire project and completed the refurbishment within very tight time and budget constraints. They are great to work with. Finding them has been a huge plus.’
