Nottingham Architecture Practice Expands Office

Leonard Design Architects did an entire refurbishment of its head office to accommodate its growing team in Nottingham.

Full revamp of the company’s head office

The revamp was done on its fourth floor and the additional space located in the third floor.

B&M Installations, a commercial fitout firm, completed the work, which involved adding new interface floor tiles and kitchen, as well as a frameless glass partitioning.

Leonard Design director John Morgan said that their top priority for the renovation was to have more space in order to accommodate their growing team because of increasing regional work.

Different working spaces were created to provide the staff with a different working environment, not confined to the usual work desks.

The office also now has different, creative areas located in the third floor like the open design meeting tables, tiny café style tables, huge tables made for drawing, glass panelled conference rooms, a room with blackout blinds for total privacy, and several bean bags.

The company has 66 staff throughout its London and Nottingham offices, 46 of which are in the Nottingham office.

Last year, the company hired 22 employees for its two offices, 17 are at the head office in Canal Street.

Morgan also added that they wanted a high-quality office to display the company’s high standards to their local, national and global clients.

B&M Installations’ project manager Dan Belfield said that it was an excellent project to do due to the third floor being a blank canvas.

The highest specification products were used, including interface floor tiles across the whole office and Vitrage silicone glazed glass partitioning in full height for the meeting spaces.

A primary part of the project was doing different leisure areas, so a high-end kitchen that included granite worktops was installed. A shower room was also installed having top finishes.

Summing up

Whether these are commercial fitouts in Nottingham, or other parts of the world like office fitouts in Melbourne, more space can be created to accommodate a growing team. Likewise, office fitouts are going to fully showcase a company and its standards through its beautifully designed interiors.
