As an innovative, tech-focused hub and a well known centre of excellence for businesses from the maritime, technology, security and defence sectors, Portsdown Technology Park is the perfect base for Metaverse VR.

With the promise of being co-located with like-minded SMEs, OEMs and proximity to our customers we are excited to take on this space and make it our own. We had high ambitions to create a workplace that we all love to work in. We wanted it to elevate our brand and enable complex ways of working – no small task for Blue Jelly, our full service provider of design, fit out and furniture for positive environments where people want to work.

Our dream was brought to life by developing a futuristic reception area with a custom made, light box installation of the Metaverse VR logo surrounded by brand coloured uplighting and matching soft furniture. The Pure white Corian reception desk directs our brand aesthetic through to the open plan open-plan area for desk-based working. The Metaverse VR emblem is etched throughout the space into custom acoustic panels and the glass walls of the meeting room and simulators and floor-to-ceiling brand graphics coat the feature walls. Plus, behind a set of special doors, we’ve also got some Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace bridge simulators for Royal Navy trainees as part of our work on Team Fisher. And yes – that is Portsmouth Harbour the boat is docked in. 

Blue Jelly’s Contracts Director Kevin Ward said, ‘this has been a complex and technical project, just how we like them! Working to MOD specifications and collaborating with specialist suppliers have all been part of the journey.’

The success of the new workplaces echoes through the team and we proudly show off the new space to visitors and clients alike. Please do contact our team to pop by, we welcome visitors and look forward to sharing our office with our friends and customers.
