With two YHI divisions, Power & Tyres, located at separate sites, seamless communication was always going to be a challenge.
The decision was made to unify the two groups into one unified space, extending one of the existing office and warehouse spaces to accommodate the new staff numbers and the relocation of workstations.
The size of the extension was increased during the design phase of the project when YHI decided to upgrade their traditional ‘L’ shaped desks into a more contemporary style.
Meeting and office spaces are now located around the perimeter of the workplace, strategically placed so they can look out into the warehouse.
During the project, the team had to investigate with the fire engineers to find out if the warehouse had the rapid response sprinklers, a requirement if YHI wished to bring the stillage racking as high as possible. New sprinklers were installed to accommodate this.
The new fitout has drastically improved the speed of communication between the two businesses, working under one roof making day-to-day activities much more effective.
