A 480 bed student residence in the heart of Bristol. This BREEAM excellent building was originally a multi tenanted office building. The transformation included a gym, cinema room, games room and breakout spaces.
Originally constructed for IBM, this 600,000+sq ft of office accommodation ranges across multiple buildings connected by street style covered corridors. The requirement was to return this site to an aspirational location through a contemporary upgrade of what had been an iconic series of buildings, by injecting a 21st Century appropriate personality that is respectful of the building’s heritage.
A Centre of Excellence providing accommodation for 95 staff to grow to 145. The Organisation works collaboratively on projects with leading academics and practitioners in related industries. The space provides the appropriate environment to anticipate multiple uses, expressing the ethos of the business and “walking the talk” through the provision of appropriate technologies.
State-of-the-art office and production facility for aerospace giants CTG. Previously working from five offices in and around Banbury, employees will now be working from one central location. The new building brings departments together to create a more cohesive and collaborative workforce. The main aim of this project was to accommodate a large majority of CTG’s production process under one roof to make operations more efficient, which in turn will help to increase productivity.
International law firm Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co. were looking to inject the firm’s brand personality into its prestigious new offices in Birmingham city centre. After moving from a period property in Colmore Row to a state-of-the-art, modern building, we implemented a modern classic design with an avant-garde twist.
Refurbishment work on the lobby area of Grade II listed Baskerville House in Birmingham. We re-instated the revolving door to improve the heat retention in reception, and re-instated a chandelier where there was one previously but with a very contemporary twist. We were keen to ensure that the new fit out complemented the iconic art deco style of the original design.
A first class conferencing and banqueting facility within the recently launched Resorts World in Birmingham. Working around the original spatial designs, we have incorporated key feature wall cladding, softened the finishes and enhanced the lighting to give it a more sophisticated, hotel ambience.
State-of-the-art library refurbishment that is used by more than 14,000 students and has a 30 team of academic librarians. A variety of different seating areas and furniture, encourages collaborative working, while additional computer stations and laptop docking stations enable students to work remotely. It was important that the function and flow of the space was improved and staff had increased visibility to students. The bespoke joinery was designed, delivered and installed within six weeks.
The space comprises offices, a reception, a lecture theatre, meeting rooms, board room, toilets, a coffee bar, breakout spaces and a small mail order fulfilment centre. Our brief included designing internal layouts/space planning, lighting, finishes and furniture & fixtures. Being a circular (or doughnut) shaped building constructed around a historic oak tree called for particularly imaginative solutions when space planning, as the offices would not be entirely open plan.
