EPG Health Media

EPG Health Media

Client Background

EPG Health Media is a digital communications business and the publisher behind epgonline.org.

The epgonline.org website provides healthcare professionals with information on the latest developments and solutions in the life science industry, and boasts 1000s of visitors every day.

Client Brief

To create a fun, collaborative and vibrant office space that reflected EPG’s company identity.

Our Office Interior Design

Following a CAT A fit out (completed prior to Rap’s arrival), we were called in to complete the office fit out works in accord with EPG’s spec and our design.

With fit out works required for the ground, first and second floor at Wallside House, our office designers created 2D plans and 3D renders for each.

Our client required two large breakout areas: one on the ground floor, and one on the first. The 3D design for both included a kitchen, dining area, corner sofa, flat screen TV and funky brick effect wallpaper. These elements were key in creating a fun, hospitable environment – as per the request of EPG.

For the office space itself (floors one and two), an open plan design with shared desks provided the perfect solution to facilitating a more collaborative environment. On the first floor, the design showed how the office would run adjacent to the large breakout area, which had a proposed glass partition to add depth and brightness to the room. For the manifestation on the glass, we worked closely with EPG to create a bespoke branded design.

Our Solutions

There were a number of challenges to overcome during the implementation of our office interior design. In order to situate the reception and waiting area in the same space, a dividing wall needed to be taken down. Due to it being a solid bridge block wall with coving on one side and a lay-in ceiling grid on the other, this required an unorthodox solution to remove it, which involved installing a lintel to support a small section of course brickwork. With the solution in place, Rap were able to unite the reception and waiting area, making for a spacious, hospitable entrance to EPG.

"Working with Rap was a pleasure from start to finish. Straight from our first meeting with Julie and the team we felt that they completely understood what we were trying to achieve with the move and our new office. Rap listened to our wants and needs and added their own interpretation onto the office, suggesting cool features and interesting ways of achieving a fantastic environment. We had an extremely tight deadline of 8 weeks from pitch to move in date and they delivered on time and on budget accommodating a few additions and changes along the way. We love the finished environment and already we can see and feel how the office is having a positive impact on our business. We cannot thank Julie and the team enough and would have no hesitation using them again or recommending them to any other business."
