Overbury to Deliver Office Space for Mazars at Chamberlain Square

Overbury to Deliver Office Space for Mazars at Chamberlain Square
25 November 2020
 

Fit-out firm Overbury is to deliver a new flexible workplace across 12,000 sq. ft. of office space at the landmark Paradise Birmingham development.

The new space is expected to be completed in Q1 2021 when Mazars will relocate its 200-strong team to Two Chamberlain Square in Birmingham city centre, from their existing offices in nearby Church Street. 

 

Suiting the Needs of Five Generations of Employees 

 

Overbury has been appointed by international tax, audit and advisory firm Mazars to create a bright, spacious and flexible workplace. The design comprises several multi-task, flexible and connected spaces and is tailored to suit the needs of five different generations of employees, all working side-by-side.

Mazars employees will be able to choose to work from classic, campus and hotelier-style desk space and a combination of more than thirty agile working spaces, including meeting rooms, booths, breakout spaces and other collaborative working areas. Staff will benefit from a wellbeing lounge, coffee bar and cafe/restaurant, as well as lockable storage.

A fully glazed boardroom and meeting suites will make the best use of natural daylight and provide striking views of Chamberlain Square throughout the workspace. The installation of folding glass partitions will allow the office to be reconfigured into one large innovation hub with various flexible room arrangements for training, client meetings, conferences and town hall events.

Biophilic Design

 

A sense of place is reflected in the choice of materials, with stone, limestone, heritage brick and clockwork craftsman detailing, balancing the use of integrated technology. Feature lighting, exposed ceilings and biophilia will create an inviting and contemporary finish.

Michele Clifton, Office Design Account Manager at Overbury’s Birmingham-based team, said: “We’re thrilled to be delivering such a dynamic and collaborative working environment on behalf of Mazars. The design is based on creating the very best workplace for now and the future and has been shaped by input from Mazars’ diverse local team and our learning as an office fit-out and refurbishment specialist in developing post-COVID spaces.

We want to create a truly exceptional experience through a workplace that will be an academy for learning, somewhere that allows for choice and autonomy, encouraging social interaction and striking a balance between work and wellbeing. We’re looking forward to delivering a fully inclusive fit-out that places the user at its very heart, giving people a choice of where and how they want to work.”
