Since their inception in 1999 theidol.com has developed technology led insurance comparison products and delivered consumer solutions in the FinTech and financial services sector.
From their beginnings as a lean start-up, their early success was specialising in providing life insurance. They have evolved over the years and partnered with many UK insurance brands, diversifying into a range of insurance products that now includes travel, pet and group life insurance. They have honed and refined their technology, which has enabled them to keep our staff numbers low whilst processing high volumes of insurance product quotes, applications and sales. Today Legal & General is 100% their parent, however this does not change the culture and passion they bring to projects.
The Brief —
The client had outgrown their existing premises due to expansion of its workforce and needed to move to a new building. Once they sourced this they engaged us to design and furnish the new space as well as installing the partitioning required for the scheme . The space comprised of the first floor and half of the ground floor of the site Eden Business Park. The client needed an open plan office area form about 50 staff, meeting rooms, kitchen area, meet and greet area and various collaborative space solution. Additionally there was a need for a high level of storage and as a result we proposed a storage wall solution to achieve this aspect.
The Result —
The first floor was designed to incorporate the open plan office areas with the storage wall solution and some of the collaborative areas whilst the ground floor housed the meet and greet area, kitchen / break out area and various meeting rooms.
