CN joined events agency drp at its London headquarters, 23 March, for the big reveal of its Midlands-office extension in Hartlebury, via a live videoconference.
The agency, which unveiled its multi-purpose head office and event space in 2013, has now doubled the Midland’s facility’s space to 5,574sqm.
drp CEO Dale Parmenter appeared live on video link to remove the 6m drp ‘easter egg’ (#drpegg) dividing the two spaces, old and new, and revealed ‘what’s in the drpegg’.
The new space will house a new construction workshop area tripling the size of the current space, complete with its own self-contained loading bay, and enough capacity to build custom sets, exhibition stands, and more complex solutions.
The other area will be separated into a new set, scenery storage area, set covering area, technical preparation space, as well as two dedicated loading bays specifically to accommodate HGV’s and allow simultaneous loading.
The new warehouse space will provide an extension to the current offering, while doubling the production planning, digital, and video areas.
Parmenter said: “The new expansion has happened a lot faster than we anticipated, it will allow us to increase our capacity, service levels, and quality for our clients.
“The site is undoubtedly the largest and most comprehensive corporate communication complex in the UK, if not Europe. This investment is part of an ongoing programme to realise our vision of being the company of choice for presentation and communication solutions globally.”
