Beckett Investment Management Group

Case study

Financial Services Fit Out Case Study

Beckett Investment Management Group are providers of financial advice to individuals and corporate clients across East Anglia working from their offices in Bury St Edmunds. Years of mutual trust meant that Managing Director Ian White did not hesitate to contact Optrys when looking to remodel their workspace.

Project Outline

Due to expansion of their business Becketts wanted to expand available floorspace, as well as modernise their 1980s style furniture.

 

The objective was to create a clean, crisp, professional environment, that projected the right message to potential and existing clients who visit the company.

 

Included in the brief was the need for a layout that decluttered the office and aided the company’s clear desk policy.

Project Management

On top of managing the project and designing the layout; Optrys provided the knowledge and expertise to help Becketts:

  • Make best use of the space
  • Understand the different purchasing options
  • Source new carpets and furniture
  • Ensure a seamless process from start to finish
  • Use graphics and branding effectively across the office

Outcomes

Becketts were delighted with their new office, their employees to be given the upgrade to their working areas. This has helped to create more engaged and productive employees.

 

The office redesign has also had a positive impact on clients, who comment on the welcoming professional layout that goes away from traditional stereotypes. They are also impressed by the murals in the meeting rooms that depict scenes from the local area showcasing the companies history and vision.

 

Managing Director, Ian White praised the work of Optrys in delivering the project and the attention to detail shown and the effective communication of the progress of the project. Becketts were also full of praise for the effective management of the project by Optrys. This allowed for the implementation of the new layout with limited disturbance to the company’s operations despite the large scale changes.

We would like to praise the work of Optrys in delivering the project and the attention to detail shown and the effective communication of the progress of the project.
