Rejuvenating office refurbishment

Compass Point Recruitment refurbishment by Source One

Compass Point Recruitment were looking to refresh and rejuvenate the external and internal spaces of their Bury St Edmunds office. We worked with the team to create an office design that took inspiration from their new brand identity and then managed the project installation through to completion while the building remained in daily use.

Our clients view: Compass Point Recruitment feedback

Beverley Gedge, Operations Director, Compass Point Recruitment

While the images tell part of the story, here is what our client said about working with us. Beverley Gedge, Operations director, Compass Point Recruitment, provided the following feedback:

"From my initial contact with Pat at Source One I was impressed with the support and help he offered in guiding me on the specifications and costings. We had a tight budget and he was excellent in working with me to come up with solutions to this.

Working with a company that could provide us with the complete project management was essential. It was a challenging re-fit which required minimal disruption to allow for business as usual.

The project management offered from Lisa and Chloe was fantastic and communication was excellent throughout the whole process.

The project was not without its issues but Source One were quick to react to these and provide a solution. We are delighted with the end result and now have an office that we are proud to show our clients and candidates.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Source One."
