Case Studies

Don't be put off thinking we only do large projects, we do lots of small ones as well! (Its just that the larger ones look more impressive).

 

The Barford Exchange, Warwickshire

barford-exchangeA prestige office development on the outskirts of Warwick, This development comprised nine small high-tech office units, in three different sizes. Our brief (by the developer) was to re-design the interior to maximise usable floor space and incorporate the highest level of flexibility for the prospective buyer/tenant. 

Reducing the footprint of the toilets and kitchen, the lettable floor space was increased whilst still providing an optimal and pleasant facility for staff that complied with all of the statutory requirements and satisfied Building Control on all accounts.

The construction of the building by the developer was so thermally efficient, air-conditioning was not deemed necessary (although we upgraded the power supply to three phase so that this could be easily retro-fitted if required). The heating system was very minimal, and therefore running costs are very low.

barford-exchange4We also incorporated independent drylining, cavities within the ceiling void, and a riser duct, so that structured cabling and future IT solutions could easily be installed to any point in the building.

The first floor structure also has a removable section in the engineered timber joist construction so that a lift can also be easily installed at a later date if required. Interior & Facility Contracts Limited handled the entire fit-out package, and completed the project on-time (to our own 16 week programme), and under budget.

Newman Park Willenhall

Our brief in this instance was (by the developer) to survey, design, and carry out a complete interior fit-out, to convert a disused transport warehouse into modern offices incorporating a training suite.

The existing building was in a poor condition, and had been disused for many years;

The project involved 1440m² in total;

And also included a training suite for live training of central heating engineers & internal offices;

After the roof was replaced, and the building over-clad, the interior was completely stripped out and a total fit-out was undertaken.

We worked in partnership with the tenants own IT specialist, and also installed a comprehensive VRV air-conditioning system throughout. All new toilet, kitchen, power, lighting with sensors, and insulation, combined to reduce running costs.

The project was completed on time, and on budget.

MAN Trucks, Nuneaton

Faced with a tired service & parts department, MAN Trucks wanted to upgrade their reception area and office to meet the new corporate image and service concept. The German-made furniture and equipment proved too expensive for the available budget, and so we were tasked with producing a design that was acceptable to the German parent company, using UK sourced materials, equipment, and furniture.

There were a few changes along the way (as you would expect), and here is the finished reception area;

Overall, the contract was completed without disruption to the 24hr operation of the truck centre, on time, and (substantially) under budget.

The school were looking for a scheme to replace a jumble of store rooms next to their reception area with meeting and interview rooms.

We prepared a scheme as shown on the plans below which was implemented and installed during the six week summer holiday period.

The store rooms were replaced more effectively by a storage wall down the one side of a corridor.

The meeting rooms utilised glass very effectively to give an open ambiance but still provide privacy for conversations.
