Approaching a lease expiry, Southeastern Rail appointed Oktra to give their workplace an update that considered form and function.

Oktra created a warm, welcoming environment that offers future-proof flexibility and a clear visual identity.

Oktra held a series of workshops with the client team and conducted workplace consultancy in order to fully understand their ways of working and their business strategy.
