To design and fit out the 1st floor suite of Quayside, Wilderspool Business Park in Warrington, keeping in line with the Handelsbanken model specification. This was a challenge because the existing exposed concrete ceiling and M&E keeping with the required look and feel.
We initially focused our attention on creating the key meeting rooms and client space close to the entrance to the space. We placed the reception holding area close to the window looking over the magnificent water fountain to the east. We introduced a moving wall between the two large meeting rooms which enabled the two spaces to be opened up into one larger training space for events involving other branches.
The kitchen facilities were key to the brief, a space was needed close to the client areas but also markedly separate from the main working area to allow people to breakout. The workstations are positioned on the east side of the building, giving the best views. We also installed a hot-desking area formed from electric sit-stand workstations.
"We found Officeinsight great to deal with on our office relocation project. As we were essentially starting with a 'blank canvas' it was important to have some creative input & ideas from the Officeinsight team, which included looking at a range of layout and furniture options and visiting showrooms together to refine our office design. The fit-out project was well managed, on budget and on time, and it really helped to maintain direct access to the Officeinsight team at all stages. We are very pleased with the end result and have received plenty of positive feedback from our visitors!"
