About the project:

First Choice Group is an established spare parts supplier of commercial catering spares, servicing the catering, laundry, coffee and bakery industries. In 2017, due to exceptional growth, First Choice Group moved into a purpose-built facility in Staffordshire. After partnering successfully with Industore – Powell’s sister company that specialise in automated storage and retrieval systems – First Choice Group awarded Powell the contract for the design, fit out and furniture supply of its brand-new headquarters.

the brief.

First Choice Group was not only working to re-establish its business structure, but was also looking to restructure in the physical sense. Staff had outgrown the previous building and needed a space that was going to benefit them for the long term. Powell was therefore tasked with the formation of a modern working environment, where multiple interior layouts were required, including numerous training rooms and a comfortable dining space for teams to enjoy and relax.
