“This truly was a collaboration of client and interior designer working together to achieve a shared goal and we are extremely pleased with results. We have instantly noticed the positive effects on productivity and employee well-being and also seen an increase in attracting future talent into our business as a consequence.”

Bill Holmes, Chief Executive, Radius Payment Solutions

SpaceInvader was appointed to create a 66,000ft ‘internal campus’ that would inspire its people to develop both as individuals and as a collective team, driving productivity across the site and enabling business growth.

The fundamental concept that drove the interior of this £41m project was the individual well-being of each and every person that used the space. This was achieved by working collaboratively with the client to better understand the needs of the individuals, enabling us to design and create uniquely tailored spaces, which were grounded in insight and tied seamlessly into Radius’ business objectives.

Each specifically designed space was given its own concept, ensuring that it reached its full potential to unlock the power to enhance human behaviour and motivate people through their environment and working areas. This approach brought the client’s brand to life. Additional elements of the client’s personality was cleverly woven into the very fabric of the design. The love of sci-fi and technology features throughout the space in ways that are artistic yet functional.

Leading furniture, fixtures & equipment manufacturers and supply specialists SouthernsBroadstock also played a key role in creating the perfect commercial environment, by providing over £500,000 in loose furniture for the project.

At the head of this journey, was a forward thinking and ambitious client determined to create a long-lasting culture for a visionary business. By working together we were able to design and deliver an authentically branded environment that enhances the human experience while attracting, retaining and empowering employees.

Radius Payment Solutions’ office was awarded ‘Commercial Project of the Year’ at the 2019 RICS North West Awards.

“RICS judges commended the collaborative effort of the project team – SpaceInvader Design, Walker Sime and Overbury – for improving the way one of Crewe’s largest employers works, recruits and retain staff, and enabled it to grow the business using quality space.”
