Emerald Publishing Group

The Brief

Emerald Publishing Group were seeking a pro-active, dynamic property services provider to construct facilities to reflect their ‘Real-Impact’ company vision at their headquarters in Bingley, West Yorkshire.

Emerald Group initially contacted RFM Group through a personal recommendation. With three phases in total, phase one included transforming two floors of existing office space to create new fully fitted-out conference rooms, a large events space, meeting rooms and flexible working spaces. Phase one also included a brand-new gymnasium, shower rooms and breakout areas.

Due to the fantastic success of phase one, RFM were retained by Emerald Group to continue onto a further two phases which included installing a large restaurant and further breakout areas across the multi-site headquarters. To further integrate and enhance employee productivity, Emerald commissioned RFM to renovate an old conference room into a superb new restaurant and commercial premises, for the benefit of all Emerald employees.

The restaurant and breakout area called ‘Brew’ only serves nutritious food and drink and the walls are decorated with famous music album covers. The final phase saw a further new breakout area and seating for employees to take time away from the office. The main wall includes a mural designed by Emerald employees following an internal competition.
