Making the shortlist!

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been shortlisted for our work at 127 Portland Street for our client – digital influencer and marketing heavyweight – Social Chain, in a search for inspiring creative workplaces.

Inspired Spaces North 2017 is an annual search for the most inspired workspaces in the North’s creative sector, and they think they might have found it with Social Chains new office.

“Engaging a new generation, with bold ideas, in an ever-changing landscape”

Social Chain’s mission statement was the focal-point for the workspace design – unique, bold and innovative. A lighting blue slide falls into a ball pit, a waterfall cascades throughout the day and a yacht-themed meeting room gives staff the chance to work and brainstorm in a creative, inspiring environment. Social Chain’s workspace has been created as a hotspot for motivation, productivity and long-term employee satisfaction. It was made to inspire, and we think it does just that!

Founded in 2014, Social Chain is a Manchester-based influencer marketing business that manages hundreds of social media pages across Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other channels. Following the company’s initial rapid success and increasing client base, Social Chain opened a Manchester city centre office in March 2015 and appointed Workspace Design & Build to complete the fit-out. Since opening in Manchester two years ago, Workspace Design & Build have completed two further expansions and have been reappointed to assist with the company’s continued growth as they look to expand again.

The Inspired Spaces North Awards, in association with Active Profile and Prolific North, is being backed for a second year by headline partner Capital & Centric and supporting partners Brabners and Zut Media, while 2017 additionally welcomes leading interior design company, Sheila Bird Group, and commercial property advisers, GVA.

A public vote will then open on Friday 13th October until 31st October, with the resulting Top 10 Inspired Spaces in the North announced at a wrap party in November. To view the Social Chain space amongst some of the other shortlisted projects please click here.
