After this year’s successful refurbishment of a new 60’000 sq ft headquarter building, work starts on a testing two-floor 20’000 sq ft project within a 4-week window in December.
The 500k projects will involve Elm creating an effective working environment, installing 125k worth of modern office furniture, addressing the clients’ requirements of accommodating more employees within a contemporary productive office environment.
The building three project will cover, workstations, storage and chairs and also the fundamentals of the refurbishment, covering; ceilings, lighting, partitioning and flooring.
To ensure a cost-effective solution for the client Elm will be working with existing office furniture and space planning, so move-out costs are kept to a minimum.
This month long project will be managed by Elm’s Project Director, Nick Clarke, ‘The occupied site will test the planning and logistic skills of Elm’s move management team. The project involves multiple internal moves of client staff and the use of ‘swing space’ is used to temporary house client teams during transition. All client staff eventually will enjoy a Christmas break, whilst our construction teams work on through 24 hour shifts, hopefully enjoying a mince pie every now and then!’
Supporting Nick will be Project Co-ordinator, Martin Collins, who will be working closely with Elm’s in-house design team in considering the office space planning solution.
Elm’s Managing Director, Daren Spencer will complete the team by directing the large furniture fit-out for the pharmaceutical giant.
Elm’s continued relationship with the client will see them provide a similar office refurbishment and furniture fit-out project in the New Year.
