Octopus have just completed a 900 square metre carpet fitting contract at Fisher Productions in South West London. We supplied and fitted the Dahlia Additions range of carpet tiles to the ground and first floor offices in a patterned arrangement using two tones of carpet tiles. The design we worked to was created in AutoCAD by Fisher’s in-house design team .
Octopus Interiors have completed an expansion and refurbishment of the South West London offices of Phoenix Asset Management Partners.
The existing office had a neighbouring warehouse/garage and the brief was to knock through to create a larger open plan office space, replace metal roller shutters with aluminium framed glazing to match the existing frontage and create additional windows to the rear of the office. In addition, the existing office was stripped back and refurbished with new internal doors, Kitchen, LED panel lighting, WCs and shower room, Karndean plank flooring, new desks, chairs and furniture and a complete re-decoration.
Phoenix are fund managers committed to value investing, and value was the key objective when refurbishing and extending their office. They wanted it to look good & modern whilst being comfortable & practical to work in, but in keeping with their core values all had to be kept to a reasonable cost and above all, there could not be any suggestion of excessive spending or wastefulness. By utilising quality but economically priced products, and by planning and managing the project carefully, the resulting refurbishment exceeded their expectations and came in under budget. Another good day (or 3 weeks to be precise) at the office, and another happy customer!
Octopus Interiors supplied and installed office desking for the newly refurbished Langford Russell branch offices in West Wickham and Orpington, Kent.
Octopus Interiors have just completed another office partition installation at the offices of the famous London department store Liberty of London in Regent Street. Adrian Roman, Project Manager and designer at Libertys said the following:

Octopus Interiors have completed an office refurbishment for charity The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust at their new offices in Buckinham Palace Road, London SW1. The 2nd floor space within a listed period building was transformed with new carpeting, kitchenette, glazed partition wall, lights, painting and decorating and new office furniture. Rosemary Mitchell, Director of Strategy & Operations for the Trust said “It all looks amazing. Thank you so much for all your hard work”.
Shortly after the completion of refurbishment works, an evening drinks event was held at the office at which it was officially declaired open for business by the Trust’s Chairman, The Rt Hon Sir John Major. See our before and after photos for this project.
Octopus Interiors have completed an office refurbishment for the Temple Group at their new offices in St Katherine’s Dock. The fitout involved predominantly glazed partition walls to create a number of new cellular offices, painting and decorating with Eco paints, and fitting a new kitchen and breakout area also using Eco products. The project was carried out over an exceptionally tight timescale leading up to the Christmas break. Michelle Page of Temple Group commented “Mark and I visited this morning and I gave him a tour of the new and improved office . Both of us are extremely pleased with the progress, level of workmanship and effort which has gone into delivering this project, and the painting is perfect and I am delighted with how well they did, they are a great team.”
Design agency FP Creative appointed Octopus Interiors to refurbish their office in Vineyard, London SE1 when they first moved there. The office was looking tired and in need of a general smarten-up. We transformed the space with a relatively simple but very effective make-over of decorating, new Karndean wood-plank effect vinyl flooring, ceiling lighting, kitchenette, toilets and new power and data. The project was completed with the installation of Techo’s Citis SN bench desking system and Sidiz task chairs giving a very pleasing and fresh appearance. Whilst the refurbishment was in progress, a time-lapse camera recorded the events within the open-plan area and this can be seen on youtube.
