The full service digital marketing agency KW Digital originally started out as the marketing department of the valve manufacturers MGA Controls. But from these small beginnings, they grew to become a fully fledged company of their own that specialises in providing all forms of marketing services to the process industry sector.
Their services include SEO, social media updates, website design and much more. With their previous experience at MGA Controls, they are well placed to offer their specialist services to other similar companies.
Even after they went independent, KW Digital were still occupying the first floor at MGA Controls but growing quickly. Therefore they needed to look into acquiring a premises of their own. David Wilson who is a Director at MGA Controls and KW Digital is also a Director at Kirkwood Wilson Accountants, who Nexus had worked with previously to fit out their new premises.
David and Kirkwood were very happy with the solution and once another unit became available on the same industrial estate, David snapped at the chance to purchase it and work with us once again. What KW Digital required was very similar to the brief given to us for Kirkwood Wilson, an office mezzanine floor solution that made the most of the available space and created room to expand in the future.
It was important to KW Digital that they had a premises to be proud of, one that they could invite potential clients into to seal the deal. The project included the design and build of an office mezzanine floor which featured two open plan office spaces, three individual office spaces and a Director’s office.
The design also includes a large meeting room and a kitchen/breakout area which features an island and television. Male, female and disabled WC facilities were also created on the ground floor. KW Digital stressed to us that the facilities needed to be future-proof, they envisioned themselves expanding even more in the near future, it was described as an inevitability by David Wilson.
‘We have growth plans for the business, we expect to be doubling in turnover over the next two or three years. That will mean a considerable increase in staff numbers. The current capacity this premises gives us is 32 with existing desks, so it will allow us to remain in this location for the next two or three years, by which time I think we’ll be looking at opening up another office, maybe in another city’.
“When you invite clients into your premises, your premises becomes your showpiece, it says a lot about your image. It’s very important to us that we have a high quality building, a building that leaves a lasting impression and I think we’ve achieved that“
‘As a client and indeed as a landlord, I’d say that whilst I’m very mindful of my legal obligations of the health and safety of any workers on site, I’d be the first to hold my hands up and say I’m not fully aware of all the intimate details that are required within that. It worked really well to hand that responsibility to Nexus as my Principal Designer and in doing that, Nexus was taking responsibility on my behalf for the health and safety of the workers on site’.
‘In terms of the drawings, the quality of the documentation was superb, it was easy for lay person to understand. If I ever had any difficulties it was just a case of picking up the phone and low and behold, a revised drawing would be in my inbox within 24 to 48 hours. It was a very straightforward process.’
‘Working with the Nexus team on site was very easy. I would even say it was an enjoyable experience. I think the culture, it’s endemic in the way the company works that they want to deliver a good solution and everyone buys into that.’ David Wilson, Director, KW Digital
KW Digital now have a facility of their own after years of working in the offices of MGA Controls. They also have the room to grow in the future, with plenty of space for new employees.
‘The quality of the work at the end of the day is second to none. I really can’t say how happy I am with how the project has turned out. We have a building that we are very proud of and I would say for the second time in a couple of years we’re very happy customers of Nexus.’ – David Wilson, Director, KW Digital.
We would like to wish David Wilson and everyone at KW Digital all the best and we hope to work with David again in the future. If your business is growing and is looking to create bespoke office space, contact us today. Making space is what we do.
“If and when I move onto my next building refurbishment, Nexus will be the first people that I speak to. I would not hesitate in recommending Nexus to anyone I know who are looking to convert a building.”David WilsonDirector, KW Digital
