Client: Volac International


Status: Commenced 2010, completed 2012


Architects: Saunders Boston


Project Description:


Volac International is a fast-growing, ambitious family-run international dairy business and is world leaders in dairy nutrition developing products that advance the health and performance of consumers and farm animals. Volac cares for their customer base and enjoys helping partners and communities to prosper, and so contributing to a sustainable, healthier future.


The reconfiguration, refurbishment and extension of Volac’s international headquarters have provided impressive, light and airy new offices that transformed the quality of the working environment and raised the image of the company.

  • Efficient layout making best use of views and daylight

  • Flexible, open plan office space and versatile meeting/seminar rooms featuring moveable walls

  • Low glare lighting and acoustic controls enhancing occupant comfort

  • Ergonomic furniture allowing agile working for optimum private and team working functionality

  • Staff welfare facilities including a fully equipped kitchen, a gym, showers, a library, break out spaces and landscaped external seating area

  • Ongoing space planning for additional workstations including hot desking provisions

  • Extension feasibility studies

  • Acoustic improvements in connection with the above

  • Board room refurbishment

  • Video conference room reconfiguration

  • Additional external seating area

  • Reconfiguration of the ‘House’ office space

  • New PDI innovation kitchen

  • Car park alterations
