How CMI Workplace is quietly achieving great things for our clients

Posted on 16th March 2018 by CMI Workplace

In the fable of the lion and the mouse, we learn that even the smallest of creatures can help the largest to succeed.

We believe this applies in business too. CMI Workplace designs offices for some of the largest global brands to create fantastic interiors with personality in line with their corporate values and brand identities. Our CMI team of 25 experts across three studios, works hard to deliver practical, innovative solutions, to tight deadlines.

Projects often start with feasibility studies, which then progress through to successful interior design schemes. Our size and independence enables us to be agile, responsive and always personable. You will get to know the real experts who work on every stage of the project, keeping you involved each step of the way. We listen to your needs, help to find a solution then deliver to the highest standard, ensuring that we get it right for you.

We take the time to educate our design team, ensuring that they are up to date with the latest trends and technology leading the way in workplace design. This we feel is key to our success, particularly relevant when we were invited to advise on the “office space of the future” by one of the largest global long-standing telco clients recently.

We are proud members of the BCO (British Council of Offices), which enables us to be up to speed with what is happening in the industry in general. And in addition, is a primary resource for us to benchmark successful agile working best practice for our clients, prior to the designing and implementation for their own spaces.

Our friendly team competes against some of the biggest players in the office design world and many times we come out on top, winning the client favour and delivering projects successfully.

Whilst we would love to share news about our clients and shout about completed schemes from the rooftops, we are often subject to strict NDAs due to the nature of the projects and potential impact on their media profile.

So, what can we tell you about who we work for?

  • Quite a few of our clients’ employ more than 10,000 people.
  • Several clients have multiple offices globally, many of which we have helped to refurbish.
  • Many of our projects are more than 30,000ft2 in size – but don’t think that means we don’t do the small stuff too!
  • Some of our clients appear on the FTSE 100 list.
  • Most importantly, all our clients enjoy working with us, many of them coming back year on year with new and exciting projects.
  • What can we show you about the projects that we are immensely proud of? Take a look through the other pages of our website, you might just spot a name you recognise.
