Interiors and workspace

Modern spaces are bright flexible and connected.

Whether you’re expanding, downsizing, rebranding, relocating or remaining at your current built-space – we guide you through the process and provide the complete design and build service from raw Shell-and-Core and landlord Category A to complete-furnished Category B fit-outs.

Interior spaces are changing and for the better. People are your most important asset with their health and general wellbeing affected by the built environment. We create smart-working scalable spaces that encourage people to better engage, be less static and do great things.

This often brings a culture change creating some resistance. However, the benefits are far-reaching whether crunching numbers, writing a report or meeting as a team. Great space attracts, nurtures and retains talent, encourages collaboration and social interaction, greater productivity and flexibility. It makes people feel good within themselves and about work.

Engaging spaces make good use of modular workstations, breakout and soft seating areas and meeting spaces, all with seamless super-fast connectivity. We work closely with contract furniture manufacturers and resellers to specify and procure well-designed good quality furniture, storage and locker systems and accessories, and recommend DSE Assessment for desks and workstations as part of your HR duty.

Where division is needed in open-plan spaces we create focus areas, meeting rooms and quiet space from precision-engineered glass and solid partition systems and acoustic pods. Specialist noise reduction solutions are used in environments when extra acoustic control is required.

Good lighting is crucial to any environment and proven to reduce symptoms such as eyestrain, migraine, headaches and fatigue while increasing productivity and lessening workplace accidents and absenteeism. Our designs and calculations achieve recommended lux levels, colour temperature and energy efficiency with the mix of luminaires; surface, suspended and linear, pendants, direct/indirect spotlights, emergency and task lights, all forming part of a lighting scheme. All our projects use the latest LED technology and control systems developed, tested and manufactured by market leaders.

The design process normally comprises a measured building survey, floor plans and detail drawings, lighting and services drawings, 3D renders and written specification and tender documents. Buildings may require a structural survey which we can do as part of our service.

Finally, we’re seeing more users, often driven by their tech-savvy colleagues, migrating to ‘new-work’ tools such as Microsoft Office 365 BusinessGoogle’s G Suite and apps like Slack and WhatsApp, to better communicate, collaborate and remote work. Cloud brings up-to-date tools and storage to your teams’ computer, phone or tablet wherever they are. Our IT partners will setup cloud working into your organisation and provide VOIP and digital telephony, intranet, data and voice cabling and ongoing support where needed.

We’ve successfully worked on office, retail and mixed-use developments, historic buildings, restaurants and bars, television news studios, education institutions and healthcare centres, co-working and communal space, recreation, leisure and visitor attractions.
