Project description / AIS workplace:
When over 30 million working days are lost every year in the UK as a result of musculoskeletal conditions, it’s little surprise that the organisation dedicated to curing them sought a workplace design that puts the physical health of its people first. Focusing on their team and its needs, AIS Workplace crafted an office interior design that supports wellbeing and promotes flexible working, particularly for those living with arthritis.
From the very beginning, it was clear that this project represented more than your typical office fit-out. For our design team it was an opportunity to develop a workplace that placed inclusion and users’ wellbeing at the heart of the design – so understanding these users and their individual needs was key. The AIS project team put itself in the shoes of someone with an MSK condition and the everyday challenges it presents, helping us identify the key factors for a healthy, productive workplace design.
