Avara Foods entrusted CMI with the comprehensive redesign of its staff facilities, customer-facing areas, and office spaces. Tasked with revitalizing the existing spaces and introducing brand-new staff-facing facilities that align with company standards, our mandate was to breathe new life into tired environments. Given the nature of this site as a food production facility, our challenge was to execute the renovation without disrupting the staff or the seamless operation of the factory space. To navigate this intricacy, we meticulously devised and implemented a detailed phasing plan, ensuring the smooth progression of the project while adhering to the stringent operational requirements of the facility.
About the Project
The ground floor serves as a comprehensive hub, encompassing the main entrance, a welcoming reception, a staff restaurant, well-being facilities, and dedicated changing spaces. On the first floor, office-based teams thrive alongside an expanded restaurant space, designated touchdown areas, and purpose-built training spaces. The second floor is dedicated to customer-facing facilities, featuring a dynamic demonstration kitchen and specialised senior leadership spaces. A noteworthy addition to the ground floor is a new extension housing a state-of-the-art catering kitchen, catering to the dual-level staff restaurant adorned with a striking feature staircase and a diverse array of dining settings. Infused with an industrial aesthetic, the design incorporates concrete effect finishes and timber joinery, establishing a visual connection to the factory setting while introducing a touch of softness and warmth to the overall ambiance.
