  • Oktra worked closely with technology provider, Utilize, to realize their ideal offices located in Basildon, England.

    Utilize, a leading technology provider in the South East of England, were looking to create an inspiring workspace that would attract new talent and enable them to achieve their future growth plans. Oktra worked closely with Utilize to put their people at the centre of the design and bring their company culture to life.

    Oktra held multiple design workshops to better understand Utilize and their people. This enabled them to create a workspace with the right combination of work settings and accurately embody their company culture in the design.

    The Utilize project involved converting an old warehouse into an office space. To help Oktra demonstrate how the space would evolve, they used 3D forms and visualisations; enabling Utilize to be involved in the process from start to finish.

    The new Utilize office matches the world class service they provide. The central kitchen and atrium area brings people together by enabling impromptu conversations and the collaboration area – with dual screens, whiteboards and sofas – supports a more collaborative way of working. Other spaces, such as the quiet call rooms, allow for privacy when needed. There is a renewed energy in the Utilize office and we’re looking forward to seeing how their new space inspires people to achieve amazing things.
