ProGARM & FlameProOffice Fit-out
ProGARM and FlamePro both operate across the UK and Europe in the specialist PPE market, offering arc flash protective wear, and firefighter PPE respectively. With their extensive growth in the last few years, they were looking for a partner to build a workspace that they could expand into, uniting both brands together. Once Covid restrictions eased and their staff began to return to the office a few days a week, they quickly realised they needed to accommodate for more flexible working within their existing teams.
One of the key aspects of the new office was to provide a space that supported and enhanced the culture of the business. Furthermore, a workplace to assist in recruiting the next wave of talent, whilst supporting a more modern way of working. A space that gave teams the flexibility to work in environments that suited their task. To achieve this, various spaces were integrated into the design to provide connection points for the team. For example, project tables for organic touchpoints in the main offices, and a canteen with an integrated breakout area for collaboration and informal meetings.
Within the design, a modern, sophisticated look and feel was adopted, moving away from ProGARM and FlamePro’s trade colours to unite the two brands in one workplace.
Ash Collyer, Head of Marketing, describes his experience working with Cobus for the project:

How did you find the whole process?
Working with Cobus was easy and enjoyable. Their communication and support in finding the right solutions has been much appreciated, and the team are loving the new and improved space.
