AT A GLANCE

JAMES WILSON, COO, MOTORWAY

This was a critical project for us: we wanted to reinvent our Brighton office, balancing improved functionality with a design that reflected our brand and our teams. GTA partnered with us to make this happen; from creative designs to ensuring the project was delivered on time and to a high quality. They really invested time to understand our needs and were flexible and responsive throughout the build. The end result was fantastic; the team were thrilled with the new space. GTA is a great team to work with!

HOW WE DID IT...

Motorway, the UK’s fastest growing used-car marketplace, enables customers to quickly and easily sell their car for a great price from the comfort of home using only a smartphone. With a network of more than 5,000 professional car dealers using the platform to directly bid on these vehicles, Motorway helps customers sell their car for a great price, in as little as 24 hours – while supporting its car dealer partners to acquire the best used car stock online.    Motorway continues to experience exponential growth and with over 450 employees across their London and Brighton offices, GTA were briefed to transform the business’ Brighton office for their growing team. Motorway’s Brighton offices comprise three floors and serves as the main call centre and operations hub for the business. GTA designed and delivered a three storey 19,000 Sq Ft CAT B project in the heart of Brighton. Working in collaboration, GTA and Motorway designed and built a space with their teams in mind, with dedicated areas for collaboration, focused work and socialising.    GTA provided proposed layouts which illustrated desk numbers and meeting room requirements per floor. The layouts worked for the business whilst being coordinated with the existing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and data services.   The 8th floor was the highlight of the build, designed as a vibrant open space, complete with a specially commissioned mural by local illustrator Laurie Avon. This space overflows into further collaboration spaces, with choice to section off or expand and open up into a large town hall area. Collaboration areas offer a variety of flexible furniture settings for focus work, teamwork and virtual meetings, promoting activity-based working. All three floors offer a hot desking solution furnished to double up as internal meeting space.
