The Brief

As part of this grand development, a break out space was required on site. Therefore, the aim was to provide a coffee break area for customers by utilising the height, light and space within this large atrium.

Our Solution

Workspace worked with Bruntwood internal design team to create a bespoke meeting and break out space for all customers to use, utilising cork, timber and other earthy materials.


“I have had the opportunity to work with Workspace Design & Build over the last 3 years on a variety of projects, ranging from large design led office fit-outs to complex multi-disciplinary laboratory refurbishments. On a wider scale, Bruntwood have been an employing Workspace for refurbishment and construction projects continuously for the past 11 years.
In the past 3 years I have worked with several of WDB’s contract managers, site managers and quantity surveyors, all of whom share the highest level of proficiency and dedication to the job. An attractive attribute which Workspace have demonstrated time after time is their unfaltering ownership of a project in adverse moments and their pragmatic approach to overcome programme and budget issues.
Similarly. The on-site team (including operatives and sub-contractors) have proved themselves to be amongst the best with regards to professional, on site behaviour and only ever exercised respect to other building users. WDB are a company we will be instructing for future project works and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the firm to other interested clients’’
