Officeinsight secures the contract with Express Solicitors to complete refurbishment and fit out of their new 40,000 sq ft HQ.

We are pleased to have been awarded the prestigious contract by Manchester-based personal injury law firm, Express Solicitors, to complete the refurbishment and fit out of its new 40,000 sq. ft South Manchester headquarters.


The competitive tender we secured will see our specialist team undertake the CAT A and CAT B development of all 40,000 sq. ft of office space across four floors including the central cores within the landmark building, which is situated near the M56, M60 and main route into central Manchester.


Work to the building started at the beginning of June, and includes the strip out of Cat A fit out offices, the removal of redundant equipment and opening up the space on each floor to accommodate more open plan and collaborative workspaces.


Officeinsight has worked collaboratively with Express Solicitors, the award winning personal injury law firm, to develop the design of the new space to meet the modern expectations and technology demands of its 550 staff, with the in-built flexibility to accommodate future expansion in line with the law firm’s strategic growth strategy.


Gareth Dunbar, Managing Director of Officeinsight, said: “Winning a competitive tender of this size is testament to our approach as a team. Our ability to bring together the very best solutions and work to strict project timescales to meet the demands for quality office space is what we do best. We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver this important, large-scale project for Express Solicitors. We look forward to further developing our partnership throughout the delivery of this project.”


James Maxey, Managing Director of Express Solicitors Limited said we’re delighted to have identified and purchased the South Court property which will allow us to consolidate several different offices in the region onto one site and allow us room for significant further growth.  We examined a number of fitout companies and went through a detailed process with three of them before selecting Office Insight.


The team at Office Insight have worked with us to incorporate what we want into the design in a smart timeframe and are able to cover every aspect of what we need from rip out and demolition to a complete turnkey fitout. This includes the installation of new more energy efficient HVAC systems throughout, partitions, furniture and all the final finishes.  We look forward to seeing this project through to a completion over the next few months”.


We continues to expand its workspace design and fit out across the north of England, and has recently completed projects for digital and content marketing agency, Stickyeyes (Leeds), and IRG Executive Search at its city centre location (Manchester) and for fast growing tech firm, Apadmi (Salford). Apadmi tasked the workspace design and fit out company with a more unusual project of creating a multi-functional space, that has the ability to hold large scale conferences, function as a training space for the Apadmi Academy and also transform into an overflow area for workstations when more desk space is required. This unusual, flexible space required the use of mobile furniture, acoustic sheer curtains to partition the required areas.
