A ‘spa quality’ shower and a cafe are among the amenities in north-east business firm Muckle LLP’s revamped Newcastle city centre offices. Muckle occupies three floors at Time Central on Gallowgate; it has transformed the 5th floor into a smart, open-plan and flexible office for its entire workforce.

The transformation includes designated ‘neighbourhoods’ for teams to continue to work closely together, as well as private meeting rooms, one-, two- and six-berth pods, quiet zones, breakout spaces and colourful lounge areas.

Jason Wainwright, managing partner, says: ‘Now we have a totally flexible space with cutting-edge technology to help work as it suits us and our clients best, whether that’s at a conventional desk, a quiet isolated pod, a large collaborative table with Skype-enabled AV or a comfy sofa with inspirational views of Newcastle city centre.’
