“I honestly don’t think this project would have come together without Innov8. The team have been there whenever we needed. From the initial meetings you guys just got it, and the designs were exactly what we were looking for. You embraced our crazy ideas and made them happen! Nothing has been too much trouble for you guys at all. We have thoroughly enjoyed having you on the project and would highly recommend Innov8 to anyone!” – Charlotte Clarke , HR & Office Assistant, Cayan.

The Innov8-Cayan relationship began in the summer of 2015, when Innov8’s business development manager, Matt Burns, approached the software company to see if we could help with their move in any way. Cayan immediately seen that our design services would be of benefit to them, and discussions commenced.

The innov8 design team received a brief on what Cayan had hoped to have at the end of the process and work began on initial design concepts. The team implemented a concept which included matt black desks, red glass and blue acoustic screens, a plethora of meeting rooms, all themed to the staff’s favourite science fiction film. The main focus of the brief was the breakout space, as Cayan seen the value in creating a unique environment where their staff could step away from their desk work and relax. The initial concepts included long bench seating, bar area with high stool seating, pool tables and softer seated areas. It seems this was exactly what they wanted. As discussions continued, this breakout space gradually morphed slightly to include bespoke enclosed booth seating with a timber structure.

Once Cayan were happy with the design concepts, the design team began producing the technical drawings to compliment the designs, meeting building regulations and providing the relevant information to the Architects, RPP, and the main contractor, Graham Construction. Once the technical side was complete and signed off the Innov8 Project Management team kicked in. From ordering of the product to delivery and shipping, it couldn’t have gone smoother. Innov8’s team of fitters arrived onsite to meet the products and had the full project complete within 9 days. A fantastic achievement and result.

Innov8 are delighted to have had the opportunity to work with Cayan, and to have been able to help them create a perfect, productive work space for their staff.
