Interior Design and Office fit out for Tours by Locals Glasgow

Interior Design and Office fit out for Tours by Locals Glasgow

Tours by Locals are a global company headquartered in Vancouver, who provide guides covering 156 countries for travellers looking for a bespoke cultural experience. So not necessarily the most touristy sites but the the ones that really appeal to the more independent and adventurous style of traveler. The guides are all local people with extensive knowledge of their country and the most desired tourist destinations.

Their Glasgow office was based in a serviced office and due to the growth of the company, the desire was to relocate to a new office space to accommodate growing staff numbers as well as creating a fun environment which tells the story of the company.

The design team at Amos Beech created a full interior design presentation including rendered visuals. The local representative from Tours by Locals was most impressed with the amount of work that the design team had put into the project at this early stage, and also the high standard of real-life visuals which enabled him to see quite clearly what the new office would be like.

As the project moved on site, our team of office fit-out contractors got to work and within a matter of weeks the new office space was ready for the Tours by Locals Glasgow team to move in:

Our client identified a need for additional call centre capacity in Glasgow and requested our assistance to help them identify and secure the space that met their specific requirements. This included the space to have a large emergency generator installed on site and sufficient space for 600 staff and a training facility within the constraints of their business model which relies on income generated from seating capacity that is sold to their customers. Along with this, they had identified that their staff retention was too high and they were keen to develop an interior design that would inspire their staff and create a place where they wanted to come and work as well as relax and network with their colleagues.

A fantastic building for office space in Glasgow (Cuprum) was selected and we set about designing the entire space where the scope of works included full interior design and building warrant preparation, HVAC, electrical, data, comms rooms, plumbing, washrooms, floorcoverings, partitions, lighting, office furniture, soft seating and graphics.

A key component to getting this project on track and completed within the required timeframe was our Visualisation skills. Our interior design Glasgow team created the entire space in virtual 3D and populated this with a complete interior scheme. The detail for this extended right through to branding, flooring details and window manifestation. This hugely assisted our client as it enable them to walk through their own offices, see how furniture was laid out and get an all-encompassing overview of the branding. When handover was made, they already knew their way around.

Our client’s customers are now occupying the space and the feedback has been exceptional including remarks that the environment is better than their own head office space. In addition to this both the building manager and the building owner admitted that they were concerned that a call centre was being developed in their building but the end result far exceeded their expectations and they are proudly showing it off to other potential tenants.
