5Last week OBI Property received the Mixology Interiors Award for medium/large commercial interior project of the year for the £2million design and fit for the new headquarters of AO.com, the UK’s leading online retailer of white goods and appliances.

James Scott and Anna Lysik received the award from Mark Huckerby at Milliken (the sponsor of the category).

James said: “Winning the award is the icing on the cake to what has been a fantastic project and a fantastic year for the workplace consultancy team.  It was great to work with the team at AO.com during such an exciting time for their business.  We spent a lot of time with AO to find out what makes them tick and what they wanted from their workspace.  We were able to get really creative with our design, providing fun and interesting spaces which people will enjoy working in for many years to come.”

Kevin Monk, Group Director of Strategy, AO.com said: “Creating the best possible working environment for our 500 strong team at our HQ was very important to us.  We want to get the best from our team, as we know they will then do their best for us and our customers.  Working with OBI Property on the design and fit-out of the office was excellent, we’ve got the balance between work and play spaces just right.  We want to bring a smiles to the faces of our staff and visitors and from the feedback we’ve received so far, it sounds like we’ve hit the spot.”
