Oxfam is one of the world’s most long standing and well recognised and respected charities, working on a range of issues, frequently related to natural disasters and wars. Oxfam works on trade justice, fair trade, education, debt and aid, livelihoods, health, HIV/AIDS, gender equality, conflict and natural disasters, democracy and human rights, and climate change.
Like most modern organisations, and especially those who must respond quickly to changing needs, Oxfam relies on meetings and collaborative work. The physical restrictions of its building, including the way smaller meeting rooms were accessed through the boardroom, meant that it was not making the most of the space at its disposal. Fresh Workspace was contracted to reconfigure the space to make the best use of the building and increase the amount of meeting space available. The result is that staff now have full access to three meeting rooms at all times alongside the boardroom. In keeping with the organisation’s core values, reclaimed carpet tiles meant the solution is environmentally friendly.
