The Interiors division of Commercial is expanding with a year-on-year growth that is bucking the industry trend. Simone Hindmarch, Co-founder, and MD of Commercial explains that the growth is due to the “passion and motivation of the team, which leads to excellent relationships with our clients.”
Commercial Interiors recorded year-over-year growth of over 20 per cent between 2016 and 2018, while the market grew by 4 per cent year-over-year over the same period, according to the Office Furniture Market Report.
The office landscape has seen a noticeable move towards agile working, with workstations getting smaller, an increase in informal ‘unbooked’ meeting spaces, a reduction in designated managers’ offices, and more flexible working hours for all.
Simone said, “while Interiors has been an integral part of the business for 25 years, we felt our clients were crying out for a new, forward-thinking, interiors partner who could create inspirational working environments that challenged convention. So, seven years ago we launched Commercial Interiors as a stand-alone division specialising in Space Utilisation, Design, Fit-Out, and Furniture, and we haven’t looked back.
“Our philosophy is that good office design creates culture, culture shapes values, and values ultimately determine the future. We work with over 50 global and UK partners who are leaders in the furniture, fit-out and smart technology sectors, and these partnerships mean that we have the flexibility to deliver inspirational office environments, whatever our client’s budget.”
Commercial Interiors also focuses on sustainability within the office landscape and provides solutions that inspire while minimising the impact on the environment. By choosing to partner with Commercial Interiors, clients also directly contribute to the Commercial Foundation which supports disadvantaged young people.
Simone added, “I’m hugely proud of our growth. The team is unafraid to ‘think outside the box’, and they build such good relationships with customers that they trust us with big refurbishment projects.”
