Client background

Since starting its journey in 2000, Ocado has grown to be the UK’s leading online supermarket. By 2016 they had almost 12,000 employees and have annual sales of over £ 1 billion.

Office Refurbishment requirement

Ocado is continuing to grow and change, and moving to a new head office represented another exciting chapter in the history of Ocado.

Interior Options were tasked with the office refurbishment of their four-storey, eight-floor building in Hatfield. The new head office would be a significant move, allowing the headcount to increase tenfold. And the building in which they were moving was also immense. To put this into perspective, the Hatfield building is 2.5 times bigger than St. Paul’s Cathedral.

This would be the largest project our team had ever worked on, and it would challenge everyone in the team – which is what we love.

We were recruited to complete the interior design, including furniture choices and flooring, among many other services to cover approximately 150,000 ft of Office Space.

As we predicted, along the way, there were challenges; project alterations, staff moving into the building mid-project, and the need to cleverly arrange deliveries and logistics to ensure our movements didn’t hinder other trades and the internal office workforce.

The results

Throughout the process, the client changed and modified designs; however, Interior Options stayed on top of the project, incorporating changes along the way and keeping to the seven-month deadline.

Everyone at Interior Options who worked on this project loved every second. It was hard work but extremely rewarding. We are incredibly proud of the outcome. The finished product is magnificent and the client’s gratitude as the project closed was immensely gratifying.

Trident place is now home to over 2000 Ocado staff.

 

I want to thank you and all your sub-contractors for the hard work and support throughout this build. I appreciate how reactive and solution-based you’ve been to our ever demanding issue.
