Client Medisafe, part of STERIS corporation, requested a full refurbishment of a warehouse and office space where they would be relocating to. The client, a manufacturer of surgical cleaning equipment, had plans to use the warehouse as a research and development centre, and the 2 floors of office space for around 50 employees to base themselves daily.
There were two elements to this project, the warehouse refurbishment and the CAT B office fit out. The client, Medisafe, manufacture their medical equipment on site so they needed sufficient space for both this and the research and development of new products. New drainage was installed throughout the warehouse for their production lines. The warehouse phase also consisted of roof and build repairs, the creation blockwork rooms, brand new lights and equipment power supplies throughout, and a resin floor covering creating a clean, sterile open look. A new mezzanine was installed above the R&D rooms to support storage in the area. The CAT B office refurbishment was over two floors, ground and first. These two floors also had a complete strip out, so we were able to build on a clean slate. We were also instructed to manage the clients Mechanical and Electrical contractors and assist with the coordination of all trades. We had total control of site management as well as health and safety. Partitions were built in these two office spaces, which created space for meeting & board rooms. Glazed partitions were also installed in these areas. The client wanted to keep the office areas simple using only the colours blue & white, keeping with their brand identity, so we decorated focusing on those colours only. Blue interface pile carpets were installed to the office areas, and walls were painted white. A large kitchen was installed in the canteen area along with a small kitchen on the first floor.
