Last month we said goodbye to our old office and moved closer to Bristol into our new headquarters at 194 West Street, Bedminster, Bristol BS3 3NB.
It was a sad farewell to our old pad in Keynsham which had been our home for over 20 years but for an ever expanding business, we are moving on to bigger and better things.
The new office (formerly a pub) now allows us more space for our growing team of experienced and graduate level consultants.
There were a couple of motivating factors to make a move:
When we moved into our last office, there were just two of us and plenty of room. When we left, there were 9 members of Bristol staff and space was getting tight. The new office allowed us to rethink our layout to better fit our growing team. We now have more of an open plan so we’re all working closer together, rather than a more compartmentalized layout at our last place.
In our last office, we were in a building hidden from view in a small enterprise estate. While we really liked the quiet location, we lived a pretty anonymous existence. There was no way for anyone in the community to know we existed and we’re hoping our new location will help bolster our visibility in the area.
It has been an exciting 32 years for ACL, and we look at this new location as the start of another chapter in our history. We’re still working on getting settled in but we’re incredibly excited to be in the new space.
Thanks for everyone’s support through the years and also with the move. Also, we want to give a special shout out to our contractors, Focus Interiors, Invek and JM Hazel Electrical who have done a phenomenal job transforming the place!
