Case Study: Hetzner

Due to vigorous growth over the years, the well-known hosting company, Hetzner, started to outgrow its original office unit and started taking over the neighbouring offices one by one. However, the space became inefficient over time due to the duplication of similar areas over the various office units. Staff also had to walk out to units some distance away for meetings and discussions. As the company grew, it also became important to provide the staff with an inviting, modern environment where teams could be grouped together. The space should also be flexible to provide for growth and contraction of certain departments within the company.

Hetzner chose a 1500m2 office over 2 storeys in the Belverdere Office Park close to the High Street Shopping Village and the Tygervalley Regional Shopping Centre. Extensive internal alterations commenced to create a modern, open plan environment with ample pause areas where staff could meet informally. These pause areas soon became popular meeting points for teams to discuss solutions. The proximity to amenities also created a more positive working experience for the staff.
