AgileAcoustics Transforms Well Building with Custom AgilePOD#10 Office Pods for the UK’s Met Office

Acoustic Office Pod

AgileAcoustics, headquartered at Salt’s Mill in Saltaire, Yorkshire, and renowned as a leading specialist in the design and manufacture of acoustic office pods and workspace acoustic baffles, is excited to announce the successful completion of a significant project for the Met Office, a prominent UK Government Department. The project encompassed the design and installation of nine bespoke AgilePOD#10 office pods at the Met Office’s cutting-edge Well Building situated within Exeter’s Science Park.

At the heart of this advanced facility, boasting an array of high-tech amenities including a supercomputer and a dedicated structure for climate change research, the necessity for secluded spaces conducive to focused work became evident. Addressing this requirement, AgileAcoustics’ AgilePOD#10 pods emerged as the optimal solution.

The AgileAcoustics team faced a unique challenge as the Met Office’s new building adheres to the WELL Building Standard®, a performance-based system prioritising the well-being and health of its occupants. AgileAcoustics rose to the occasion, making custom modifications to the AgilePOD#10s to align with the WELL Standard’s criteria.

Key enhancements included the introduction of a Co2 Monitor to ensure optimal air quality within the office pods, a technical lighting system designed to deliver 350 lux at dusk level, and the selection of upholstery fabrics that reflect light effectively to create a light and airy atmosphere. The pods also feature unique embroidery to complement the Met Office’s branding.

“We’re delighted with the successful outcome of this project,” said a spokesperson for AgileAcoustics. “It highlights how our range of office pods can be customised and adapted to suit the unique requirements of different workplaces. We’re now developing a brand-new office pod product and look forward to sharing updates soon.”
