We all walked in to our new office today, and it’s gone pretty smoothly, though the place is still full of moving crates (see pic below).
MSE towers is based in an office complex in Shepherds Bush, and we’ve moved within the building to a bigger space (about 220 sq metres or 2,400 sq foot). Actually this is the sixth different room we’ve occupied since we found this office back in 2003 and we’re actually located right by the very first one.
That was tiny, and when the first member of the team joined, we’d grown out of it. Now there are around twenty five full time members of staff, so we needed more space – not just for seating but for meetings – plus there’s a dedicated kitchen now, so people can make themselves food.
It’s quite a shock to the system to walk in somewhere of this scale, and I suspect it’ll take a bit of time to get used to. I have a glassed off section which is almost as big as our original office; not my choice as the glass partitions were already there, otherwise I’d have wanted it far smaller. I’m not quite sure what to do with all the space; I tend to crouch up close to the desk anyway.
Either way, I hope it’ll be a nice new room, we were in a bit of a sardine tin before, and I think the team are glad they all have a little bit more space of their own to work in.
