Commercial interiors, fit out and construction firm, APSS, has finished fit out works on the conference, training and storage centre for national motorcycle insurance company MCE – laced with references to the company’s rich history in motorcycle racing.
Lincolnshire-based APSS began work at the Rushden office in April this year. Their goal was to channel the brand’s established identity within the two-wheeled motorcycle insurance industry, transforming the traditional into something completely unique and people-centric.
The newly renovated building will serve a variety of purposes for MCE, from every day training and insurance exams, to a variety of committees and conferences. The building is furnished with cutting-edge technology that will streamline everyday operations, as well as break-out areas to relax and reflect within the building.
All aspects of the building were carefully selected to parallel MCE’s established brand – from a bespoke reception desk and employee lockers, to storage cupboards designed and manufactured by APSS from its Lincoln workshop.
The fit out included the refurbishment of MCE’s main office facilities across two floors. In line with the insurer’s brand colour palette, APSS designed the interior using red, blue and white, alongside contrasting blacks and greys – providing bold statements throughout the office space.
Matt Duck, operations director at MCE Insurance, added: “APSS has done a fantastic job at creating a building that reflects who we are, whilst also providing a space that facilitates individual and collaborative working. It’s vibrant and contemporary, and it’s exactly what MCE were looking for.”
Communal spaces, reception, meeting rooms and conference suites were softened in the design approach, to give a more comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for staff and guests to enjoy. A loft-style space was also created using textured brick-effect wall coverings and timber flooring – transporting the rooms away from the standard office-type environment.
Located on Kingsley Road, Lincoln, APSS are specialists in commercial interiors, office refurbishments, retail interior fit outs and construction solutions – with national clients in sectors including education, healthcare, industrial, commercial and retail.
Miles Thomas, operations director at APSS, said: “This project is a great example of how we work with our customers to make their ideas into a reality, creating an on-brand design which highlights the company’s personality as well as providing an eye-catching, yet functional and modern, working environment.”
