Oktra design and build offices across various business sectors, managing the entire fit-out process – from design to construction, to project management and furnishings. The London-headquartered business produces high-quality manufacturing equipment and furniture for the thriving textile and clothing sector. They rebranded from Margolis Office Environments to Oktra in 2013. Today, under Chief Executive Officer Graham Preston, almost 200 staff are split between offices in High Holborn and Staffordshire. Over the years, work has changed but the philosophy hasn't: transforming spaces to innovate, outperform and inspire. The firm has an outstanding delivery record, shunning procurement and taking a design-and-build route instead to create stunning, considered, high-performing projects. With first-class designers, sustainability consultants and an expert delivery team, Oktra stop at nothing to find the perfect solution for clients. Services include office-space planning and pre-move consultancy, interior design and cost control, refurbishment and relocation, design and build, and project management.
