RWS Ltd were approached by a client who had queries regarding an existing property they occupied within an office block.
Their workforce was expanding, yet the client preferred to remain in their existing location. Their offices were in the ideal place for their business, however no additional space was available in the complex. The existing work areas under occupation were ‘tired’ and – during RWS Ltd’s standard survey – it was recommended to undertake some space-planning exercises to ascertain if reconfiguration of existing space would accommodate the employee expansion.
Detailed information was taken, including desk sizes, fixture sizes and locations, which were inputted into Autocad software allowing accurate and scaled planning. RWS Ltd offer this service with all space-planning and office fit-out projects.
As part of the office fit-out it was decided that some management would require individual, private offices and additional meeting rooms needed to be created. The space planning carried out by RWS shoed how this could be achieved and how teams could be segregated within the existing floor area. Partitions were created using a modern aluminium framed glazing system. Additionally, the office fit-out allowed for decoration in corporate colours and the adding personalised graphics and detailing.
RWS specified sound-absorbent insulation and suspended ceilings were installed into meeting rooms. The office fit-out and reconfiguration had to be undertaken while the office space was in operation. Temporary partitioning was used to segregate areas of refurbishment in accordance with Health and Safety regulations. Power and data services were adapted to suit the new builds and light fittings were sourced to compliment and match those of the existing office space.
The works were completed to a high standard and the client was delighted with the results. The light and spacious offices, complete with modern fittings, created a pleasant and constructive working environment and gave the office area the appearance of ‘gravitas’ that the client wanted to portray.
