The Challenge

Compagnie Fruitiere UK are one of the world’s leading providers of bananas (other exotic fruits available) and have recently created a crazy new super-automated banana ripening plant near the deep seaport of DP World in Essex.  As the warehouse brings state of the art technology to their picking and distribution of the product, they wanted a new office space to galvanise the human side of the business too.

The Solution

The eight thousand five hundred square feet of hyper efficient office space combines a hybrid air conditioning system with a state-of-the-art lighting system where each light controls itself via the amount of available light.  The fit out incorporated offices, meeting rooms and breakout facilities for the staff working in the warehouse.

With the eight week fit out being carried out during the height of the second wave of COVID, the health & safety of all operatives were at the heart of the project, resulting in a successful hand over just in time for the world to emerge from lockdown!
