Our goal was to create an inspiring environment that helps maximise performance and productivity while encouraging collaboration to drive new ideas. The new open-plan office at Booths Park will help foster the positive and innovative culture vital for our success at the cutting-edge of medical test prep and EdTech.  OBI’s work place consultancy team helped plan out and design our space and project managed our move like clockwork.”
