SPACE delivered a new and innovative reception for Brightsolid’s state-of-the-art data centre in Aberdeen.

The £300,000 project required the design, build and fit-out of the new reception in the Tier III centre to an extremely tight timescale.

Brightsolid provided a brief which was looking for a interior design that conveyed the company values and brand, combined with the specific needs of a state of the art data centre.

Our Approach

SPACE  needed to consider how to incorporate two meeting rooms and a staff break out area for use by the brightsolid staff and the 71 Press and Journal staff who share some of the building, plus a bespoke reception desk and area. 

We introduced “flying geese” which can be seen in the image above. This worked in conjunction with custom digital image wallpaper, providing a fantastic creative challenge for the team. 

“What was exceptionally rewarding for both teams was the fact that the project was delivered within an incredibly short timescale. Brightsolid’s mission is to deliver technical innovation with personal service and one of the reasons SPACE were chosen as a design and build partner was for their shared innovative drive and willingness to think outside the cube. “As the project progressed it became clear that SPACE also shared our ethos of personal service; ensuring the project was delivered before deadline, despite extremely tight time frames, whilst sharing the knowledge with our team to keep everyone informed and ‘on-the-same-page’ in what was a very demanding project.”
