Client Brief

Coopervision had previously worked with Rap Interiors for a breakout area refurbishment at its Ashford site. Having impressed Coopervision the first time around, the contact lens manufacturer contacted Rap Interiors again for a second refurb project at the same location.

This time, Rap’s brief was to make significant changes to two of Coopervision’s industrial units to boost productivity and improve working conditions for employees. This would include the creation of a number of workspaces and upgrades to the lobby areas, washrooms and shower facilities.

Our Solution

With a remit to help expedite workflow, we introduced a range spaces for collaboration and controlled working. On the ground floor of unit one, for example, our Kent interior designers use their space planning expertise to create a new boardroom. The key features of the boardroom include a heavy-duty collaboration table with integrated power, a “cube” storage facility with lockable units, mottled grey carpet, and a wall feature for a splash of colour. This part of the project also required demolition work to allow access to the new space and flooring adaptations to create channels for power.

Other works to the ground floor included the installation of a tea point and showers, and changes to the lobby area and washrooms. For the lobby, we laid new vinyl flooring and introduced carpet to the stairs to reduce noise pollution created by footsteps. The washrooms, meanwhile, required a new set of sanitary ware and panels to make them more inviting.

On the first floor, we created a number of offices for the Coopervision executives to carry out work with optimum focus. We specifically designed these to be consistent with the ground floor boardroom, with the same orange chairs, blue and white walls, and mottled carpet. Additionally, we refurbished the first floor circulation space, making for a bright, uncluttered and free-flowing walk through the building.

For the second unit, we started by making changes to the ground floor lobby. As with much of the space, these changes were consistent with the design of unit one, with new vinyl flooring, mottled carpet for the stairs and upgrades to the washrooms.

While the ground floor largely mirrors unit one, the first floor has a different layout and function. For example, we created a shared office space for larger teams, which includes several two-person desks with screens and a range of storage solutions. Next to this, we introduced a vibrant collaboration space, which includes a stunning Frovi poseur table with integrated coat hangers.

The Result

Through working with Rap Interiors for a second time, Coopervision has made yet more improvements to its working environment and operations. With the executive offices, the directors can work in a controlled manner with deep focus, while the various collaboration spaces lend themselves to creative brainstorming.  Furthermore, the updated washrooms, shower facilities and circulation areas have ensured working conditions are excellent for employees, which is key for retaining key members of the team.

We would like to thank Coopervision for choosing Rap Interiors again. The Rap team is delighted to play a part in the continued success of a fellow Kent-based company.
