Scope

The boardroom sits on an open plan balcony overlooking the main office area and warehouse.

We were commissioned by the client to produce several options for the site and space which would capture the essence of the company and allow for future expansion. Our Interior Designers worked closely with the client to create their first purpose-built office.

The open two storey office space gives the user flexibility of several different meeting and working spaces throughout the building. This design features a range of interior architectural details, such as a large container which houses the boardroom.

Due to the nature of the open plan office, the structure of the building played a key part in the interior design. The structural frame and cross bracing embraced honest materialism and added to the industrial aesthetic our Interior Designers were aiming for. Our client was keen to embrace exposed elements to add to the character of the building. Black hardware and exposed services also link to the company’s industrial links and branding. Raw materials can be found throughout the office, for example woods and metals within the variety of seating.

We closely considered the co-ordination of the mechanical and electrical elements with the timber cladding features, ensuring the correct allowance was made within the timber system to allow for numerous lights and grilles. Thoughtful planning reduced installation time on site.

Result

The inspiring interior design provides a wonderful working environment.

Through close liaison with the client, our Interior Designers have created a space which employees feel proud of.

Project

West Suffolk
Operational Hub

Brief

Suffolk County Council and West Suffolk District Council wished to combine some of their current services into one hub site.

Our brief was to provide a new hub to amalgamate their waste site, provision for their future waste collection needs and a purpose-built household waste recycling centre. This would include buildings for a new waste transfer station, bailer building and a re-use centre along with offices. The other part of the site would be used for the Councils’ parks and ground services. These include landscape stores, offices and a vehicle maintenance workshop to service their current fleet of vehicles. Associated external works and landscaping would also be required in this area.

Scope

For this design and build bid we were commissioned to deliver Architectural, Landscape, Mechanical, Electrical and Carbon services to RIBA stage 3.

Architectural and Landscape services were then appointed by the main contractor to RIBA stage 7 to complete the project. The purpose of the project was to centralise some of the existing waste services onto one joint site to create a hub where services can function together, whilst maintaining the safety of the public visiting the household waste recycling centre. New roads, hardstanding, parking and landscaping were also provided and designed to facilitate the safe flow of traffic in and around the site.
