This project involved the complete remodelling of an existing office space to create an attractive and well-equipped zone where staff can move seamlessly between collaboration, meetings, desk work and private calls, with a flexible laboratory space included for good measure.   Careful co-ordination with the client during the detailed design and delivery was vital to the success of this exciting project.

  • Detailed survey
  • Technical design in CAD
  • Co-ordination of furniture designs
  • Assistance with selection of materials
  • 3D photo-realistic visuals
  • Building Control consultation

Detail in the delivery...

The client required the project to be delivered with minimised disruption to their already-busy operation.

Given the scale and depth of refurbishment, it was necessary to create a dedicated site entrance, separate to the client’s usual building entrances.  This was achieved by creating a temporary opening at 1st floor level - accessed via external scaffolding, a temporary stairway, and a powered external goods lift.

The project involved co-ordination and supervision of specialist contractors alongside the very detail-orientated refurbishment and fit-out works.

 

Sustainability, Covid-19 and Acoustics 

Special features of the project included:

Sustainability:  The client had strong goals for designing and delivering the project in a responsible and sustainable manner.  Glenside worked closely with them to maximise opportunities for re-use of materials, highly sustainable recycling of waste materials, use of sustainable materials and local sourcing.

Covid-19 Protection:  The office furniture solution included desk screens for Covid-19 protection, achieved via specialist systems even though the desks were height adjustable!

Acoustics:  Privacy and the call for quality working and conferencing environments required specialist acoustic products and construction methods.
