AFH Wealth Management has recently opened a new office in Bank House on Cherry Street in Birmingham, appointing workplace consultants Blueprint Interiors to complete the interior fit-out. As an expanding firm that prides itself on the technical excellence of its advisers, AFH wanted a particular standard of fit-out that reflected the values, quality and integrity of the firm, and Blueprint Interiors was selected to help achieve this. AFH was keen to move away from a traditional open plan office, whilst also maximising capacity and space usage to encourage collaborative working. The new workspace had already been equipped with the basics expected of a leased office but needed the company’s own personality to be

for staff and clients. Commenting on the completed project, Stacey Costar, Head of Operations, said: ‘At Bank House we wanted a unique space for our advisers and support team to work, as well as an environment that enabled and encouraged team members from the Bromsgrove office to hot desk and arrange meetings with clients in Birmingham. ‘Blueprint Interiors listened carefully to our brief and have delivered on all counts. Prior to going ahead, we were provided with floorplans, furniture specifications, a 3D walkthrough, material boards and the opportunity to see design in action. We are very proud of our new offices. 'The space has been utilised really well, with everything fitting together and spaced out perfectly.

Our offices now positively reflect our values and enhance the client and employee experience of our brand.’ w
