Business and Community

Looking beyond the office walls

With increasing globalisation in trade and communications, it can be easy to forget the important fact that most businesses are situated within or near local communities which can have profound effects on their success.

In our view, companies that integrate well into their local communities and perhaps play an active role within them generally benefit from the relationship. Equally, communities that provide a welcoming and supportive environment for businesses can enjoy many positive rewards additional to the employment prospects they may be able to offer.

With over 40 years of experience in covering all aspects of commercial office design, fit out and relocation, primarily in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire, Glenside has gained useful insights into how businesses and their local communities can integrate and work successfully together.

With this in mind, we will be looking at various projects and ideas that we have come across that show just what can be achieved by “looking beyond the office walls.”
