SCI-MX

SCI-MX Nutrition is an active-lifestyle nutrition company with a brand portfolio providing high-protein snacks, drinks and supplements to fuel and support active lifestyles. Their brands include SCI-MX, PRO 2GO and EATFIT.

They approached us to create an office design concept for their workplace that would reflect the strength and energy behind their nutrition and lifestyle brands.

After meeting the client, we started the design process and spent several months ensuring that the look and feel of the project fully reflected the SCI-MX Nutrition business.

Working with the contract managers at Edge PS, we began the detailed design for the space as well as being awarded the office fit-out and furniture contract.

We emerged with a gritty, graphics-led, urban-gym inspired design where collaboration, interaction, agile working and ‘team energy’ were key to the space. Branding and graphics were hugely important to bring this energetic and edgy feel to the workplace

Finishes are raw in places, including painted concrete floors, exposed blockwork walls, a graphic brand package, and exposed services and open ceilings.

Polyflor’s ‘Simply’ range of loose-lay vinyl floor tiles were used in the social and breakout areas, while Interface carpets provided an industrial, concrete-effect backdrop to the space.

 

 

 

Encouraging collaboration

Both the ground floor, which is darker and more industrial, and the first floor, which is lighter and airier, offer opportunities for collaboration.

With a large ceiling-mounted projector, the ground floor is an area where staff can come together for work and social gatherings.

The workplace area on the second floor offers a combination of desk and collaboration spaces, allowing people to choose where and how they want to work.

The space is designed to encourage teamwork, with scribble walls, pin-able cork walls and places provided throughout for staff to get together, talk and share ideas.

A selection of meeting facilities cater for all scenarios, with formal settings and informal team-huddle spaces planned in. Room booking systems also feature throughout to improve the use and efficiency of these meeting rooms.

With a wide selection of furniture solutions throughout the workplace, we worked with a number of furniture suppliers to find the best possible options, including; Edge Design, Connection, Identity Furniture, Verco, Ocee Design and Steelcase.

 

Project Duration: 12 weeks
Contract Value: £545,000
Floor Area: 10,000 f2

At SCI-MX we have a portfolio of brands within the fast-moving Active Nutrition and Healthy Snacking categories, so it was our goal to provide a working environment that physically embodied who we are as a company, that allows us to become a work hub that provides various spaces that can be both fun and practical for current staff and help to attract the best new talent. From the first meeting, we felt the Paramount team “got it” and really went above and beyond to design, develop and deliver a full concept to reality solution that as a team we are proud to come to every day.
