eCommerce and digital marketing agency Visualsoft has announced plans to drastically overhaul and expand its Stockton-on-Tees headquarters.

The large-scale project, due for completion in August, will see redevelopment of an existing 4,000ft2 site with the creation of three new spaces – all of which have been designed to foster innovation and collaboration.

The first comprises an auditorium in which the company can host events and hold informal team catch-ups. The team also hopes to engage with the local digital community to allow start-ups, university students and businesses to benefit from the space.

This will sit alongside a new client “village” with a range of interactive meeting areas. The company currently counts more than 1,000 clients nationwide – including Sik Silk, Lusso Stone and Daniel Footwear.

Visualsoft’s growing R&D department will also be re-housed in a new wing of the office. This expansion will help to support the team’s growth plans and talent acquisition over the coming years.

The company also has offices in Manchester and Newcastle, the latter of which re-opened in January 2019 and significantly increasing the company’s footprint in the thriving city centre.

Visualsoft has once again teamed up with Ultimate Group and Cocoon and Bauer Interior Design for the design and fit-out of the project.

Dean Benson, Visualsoft CEO, said: “This is another significant investment in the future of our business – but also in the future of the region and the great work that’s coming out of the North East. We’re incredibly proud of our team, who deliver best-in-class eCommerce results every day, so we hope that this new space will inspire them to grow and innovate even further in the coming years.”
