Dulux Trade Brings BIRA Headquarters into the 21st Century

Dulux Trade Brings BIRA Headquarters into the 21st Century

Since 1882, the British Independent Retailers Association (BIRA) has provided a wide range of specially selected financial, commercial and key business services to over 6,500 independent retailers of all shapes and sizes across the UK.

"The environment people work in impacts on their productivity, and here at Dulux we keep this front and centre of any commercial design. BIRA has been fantastic to work with and the employees love the new scheme.

It's great to see that the work we do has such an impact."

Tiffany Hall,

Commercial Colour Consultant at AkzoNobel

Dulux Trade, with artistic direction from BIRA, was able to create a calm, positive and productive workspace across the two expansive floors that BIRA occupies



The entrance, breakout, kitchen areas, boardroom, bathrooms, HR, membership, Directors/ Senior Management/marketing offices, Oxford Summer School, staircases and corridors were all extensively modernised.



The overarching aim was to use a broad wall colour as a backdrop, accompanied by flashes of vibrancy from the accent colours in the furniture chosen.

Dulux Trade paid close attention to detail with regards to colour proportion, so that each application is kept to a minimum, thereby creating impact and balance.

The colours selected for the makeover were chosen to deliver a contemporary environment without saturating the office in too much colour.

"The offices have been brought into the 21st century and have a much more light and airy feeling thanks to the colours that Dulux helped us with.

They found the perfect colours to complement our choices of furniture and carpet and the result unifies both of our buildings, which was a key factor when we started this massive refurbishment project."

Robert Jarrett,

Marketing and Membership Director at BIRA
