The brief was developed jointly between Kerry Foods and Apex, and concentrated on not only practical solutions, but also a wow factor to engage members of staff; crucial for the success of the scheme. Outstanding features include etched edge-lit acrylic panels that 'glow' and reinforce the MIC character, warm inviting colour schemes and mood lighting. All the technical stuff is carefully hidden away and the robust structure can be dismantled and moved to new locations around the site when required. The complete project was designed, constructed and installed by Apex within 4 weeks of confirmation (and that included the Christmas holidays!). The display has been widely applauded by employees, and the management of Kerry Foods have been absolutely delighted with the success of the project, saying:
"We're receiving plenty of staff suggestions, and one put forward is already promising to save the company £1000's this year!"
A decision to role out the idea to other UK sites is expected soon.
