New office, same amazing ForrestBrown culture

Share Purpose Feel Proud

Having more than doubled in size since 2017, ForrestBrown outgrew our office in Whiteladies Road and moved to Temple Back, right in the heart of Bristol.

Our beautiful new home on Temple Back had three goals in mind: to support our growing team, attract the very best talent, and offer a welcoming environment for our clients.

A dynamic place to work

When looking for our new office, we really wanted to find an environment where our teams could work collaboratively, with agility, and ultimately, in a way that suits them. Our new workspaces include a dynamic office area with hot desk seating, bold graphics and plenty of whiteboard walls for sharing ideas, coupled with rooms for client meetings and quiet working spaces for when we need to get our heads down to focus.

And our intelligent design didn’t stop there – we also created telephone booths  with special acoustics for private calls, a lively café and break out space, a Learning Lab and a flexible space for weekly yoga or events. Meanwhile, our reception space really pops with a hand-painted mural by graffiti street artist, Miss Hazard.

Celebrating our new home

A beautiful new office required a celebration in style. So, we took the opportunity to invite our friends and families over for a welcome party.

We had delicious food and drink…

With the festivities underway, founder and managing director, Simon Brown, took the opportunity to thank all of the team for their hard work, as well as our friends and families for joining us (and putting up with us along the way!).

He also took a moment to take a trip down memory lane, reminiscing about our previous offices and reflecting on just how much we’ve grown – both in size, and as a business. It was a wonderful way to welcome this new ForrestBrown chapter into our lives.

So, what do the ForrestBrown team have to say about our new home?

I love all the different meeting rooms – it feels really spacious! It’s great to have a dedicated area for yoga where we can enjoy #WorkoutWednesday!” – Charlotte Daniels, Tax Associate.

The biggest change is the number of different areas we can use – from little breakaway spots to collaboration spaces, it really makes a difference. Oh, and having hot chocolate at the push of a button is amazing!” – Ryan Barr, Research Associate.

Having an open-plan office means we can work together in a much better way – but I can also use the hot desk whenever I need to hide myself away and focus.” – Lauralei Chapman-Ludgate, Marketing Manager.
