OBI Property has been appointed to remodel Rentalcars’ 63,000 sq ft operations centre at Sunlight House, Manchester, following its design and fit-out of a 38,000 sq ft office for the company at 35 Fountain Street.
Sunlight House is home to 700 Rentalcars.com operations staff.
OBI Property will design the space around the theme of Manchester and its people, and the fit-out is scheduled to be completed in early 2016.
Rentalcars moved 350 staff into 35 Fountain Street office in May, and has now exercised its option to take a further floor, also advised by OBI.
James Scott, head of workplace consultancy at OBI, said: “Working with such an open-minded and creative client like Rentalcars.com is great. When we were engaging on the design for 35 Fountain Street, we really got to know how the business worked and how we could improve the productivity, happiness, interaction, health and wellbeing throughout the company.
“We were able to create a place that the team want to be in and work more productively, as well as having some fun too. We aim to create an equally exciting work place at Sunlight House but using a completely different theme.”
