From day one Nexus stood out from everybody that we talked to about the office refurb, I think that the attention to detail, the customer service, the fact that they accepted changes that we made again and again with no problems was great. I think the whole process has been really painless and I think the Nexus team are really great.
Which Bingo are an award winning independent online bingo reviews website established in the year 2000 and with over 400 bingo websites listed on their site, they are without doubt the UK’s market leader.
The site features reviews, contests, special offers and as Phil Fraser the owner of Which Bingo puts it ‘we are in essence, the Trip Advisor of online bingo’.
With this comes the inevitable growth and the need to ultimately relocate to a new premises. That time had come after six years at their previous office and they soon identified a new premises in Chapel Allerton, Leeds.
Which Bingo required a premises that provided them with the new office space needed for the employees, along with the extra meeting room space that their previous premises was lacking.
‘In the previous office, we had the frustration of only having one meeting room, which was big enough for the whole team, but if we had one meeting it meant that all our meeting room facilities were taken up.’
For the new premises to meet these requirements, the office facilities required an overhaul to provide Which Bingo with their needs. With this in mind Phil started the search for an office fit out contractor that could deliver the results he required.
Check out our video case study for the office fit out project at Which Bingo, featuring the thoughts of their owner Phil Fraser.
The search for a solution
Phil had to ensure that he found a fit out contractor that he could trust to implement the project for Which Bingo whilst he concentrated on running the business itself in their previous premises.
An office fit out isn’t a simple process, there’s many considerations to ensure that the facilities are implemented correctly and designed to meet building regulations. So Phil had to make sure he made the right decision when entrusting their new premises to a contractor.
Which Bingo required a fit out contractor that specialises in full design and build solutions. They need a fit out contractor to take control of the project and implement it correctly to Which Bingo’s exact requirements, whilst Phil concentrated on running the business and preparing for the move itself.
Phil began to look online for that contractor and came across our website. After discovering that office fit out’s are one of the aspects we specialise in, he looked through our portfolio of work and was impressed.
He soon contacted us and invited us to their new premises to talk through their ideas for the new space. This is where we gathered information on Which Bingo and how they work. This allowed us to design an office layout that works for them.
We then returned to the office to make a start on designing a few different layout options for them and once Which Bingo chose the layout they desired, we provided them with budget costs within days.
At this stage, Which Bingo had the option to upgrade certain aspects of the project, i.e the type of glass and solid partitioning and the furniture options. Our Senior Designer Lee Maddaford took Phil to Elite Office Furniture’s showroom in Goole, allowing them to visualise what the furniture will look like in their new premises.
Once they had chosen their furniture and finish options, we provided them with a comprehensive itemised quotation, allowing them to see where each cost lay. Once Which Bingo had looked over the quotation and discussed it with us, they chose Nexus Workspace to carry out the office fit out for them.
As previously mentioned, one of the main features they required in the new space was more than one meeting room. We came up with the idea to essentially provide them with three meeting rooms through the installation of an operable wall in between two meeting rooms.
This gives them the option to open the two rooms at a moments notice and create one large meeting room. This solves the problem Which Bingo had in their previous premises of the one and only meeting space being taken up every time.
The additional space in the new premises has also allowed us to create another feature that Phil has wanted for some time, a breakout area. This space is ideal for more casual meetings throughout the day and also for their employees to relax on a lunch time and play the PS4 which has taken up residence there.
The kitchen required an upgrade as it was looking tired and Which Bingo wanted a modern feel to it. They chose a smart grey finish to the kitchen units which blends nicely with the white walls.
The new open plan office space provides Which Bingo with the space they were craving for so long and there’s even space for more employees if such expansion is required in the future.
We needed to reconfigure the existing layout of the premises before Which Bingo moved in, walls needed to come out and we have installed new solid and glass partitioning throughout the office. The glass partitioning has been installed on one side of the meeting rooms, finishing them off nicely.
We also reconfigured the lighting to suit the new layout and installed brand new carpet tiles throughout. We also installed all Which Bingo’s electrical requirements throughout the office.

I think the whole process has been really painless and I think the Nexus team are really great’.
The new premises have provided Which Bingo with a modern office facility that is comfortable for their employees and put’s them in a great place to continue their growth and we wish them all the best for the future.
