Exclusive images inside Liverpool’s new £1.4m Sedulo office reveal stunning bar, Klopp/Kendall suite and military boardroom.
Financial advisory firm Sedulo have just opened premises in Exchange Flags and their lease will cost more than £1million while the company have spent a further £400,000 transforming their 7,000 sq ft space into an incredible area.
Upon entering the offices, clients and guests will be greeted by an impressive 3,000 sq ft backlight bar dressed in black and green to provide a very intimate and calm working space with secluded tables and a speaker system alongside.
The new offices also feature a ‘Klopp/Kendall Suite’ complete with signed shirts from Sir Kenny Dalglish and Kevin Ratcliffe plus an indoor garden, table football machine and seats in blue and red set against Goodison Park and Anfield in order to pay homage to the rivalry and history between the city’s two major football clubs Liverpool FC and Everton FC.
The main boardroom has been designed like a military bunker, complete with sandbags and 1940s Wrens uniforms in order to pay respects to Walker House – where the office is located – as it once housed a bomb-proof bunker in the basement as part of a military command headquarters.
A McVitie’s/Crawfords suite has been installed – with Crawfords having been a major Liverpool confectioner producing biscuits from the late 1800s until being merged with McVitie’s in the 1970s.
In honour of that, Sedulo will be serving afternoon tea each day in their Liverpool office with a stock of Crawfords biscuits for staff to enjoy.
A podcast studio, modelled on Oprah Winfrey’s set, has been put in place too and pays respect to slave trading that used to take place in Exchange Flags.
Meanwhile, a beautiful outdoor Victorian terrace garden overlooking the Royal Liver Building and River Mersey has been installed with a cool American-style diner decked out with iconic signage and decoration also in place for staff to eat breakfast in each day and Sedulo clients to enjoy if they wish.
Finally, a large red and white working area, complete with spotlights, a brand wall and heated massage chairs at every workstation is in place for staff to complete their duties during the day.
Sedulo founder Paul Cheetham-Karcz said:
“We’re really proud to open our offices in Liverpool to go alongside our bases in Manchester, Leeds and London.
“Bringing in the locality, paying respects to the building we are in and tipping the hat to the history of the area is really important.
“And we hope that by building spaces like this, our clients and staff will look forward to coming in and a happy environment here will create the best experience for everyone involved.
“Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester are the UK’s most dynamic cities outside of London and I wanted us to be the first financial advisory firm that had a real hold in each city, so I’m very excited about this.”
A spokesperson for Urbanise, the company who completed building works at the offices, said:
“Having worked with Sedulo in Manchester and Leeds, it was great to be asked to come and be part of the Liverpool project.
“Paul always has a vision of the office he wants and it is up to us to interpret that and bring it to life.
“Looking at the bar, suites, office and terrace that have been built here we think that we have delivered exactly what he was thinking.
“We wish Paul and all the team at Sedulo all the best for the coming months and hope that these amazing spaces help them deliver the quality service they are renowned for.”
