Fit out contractor Workspace Design and Build has had a stream of exciting project wins over the last few months and whilst the pandemic has halted some projects the company are involved with, others were keen to assign a Principal Contractor ready to start work as soon as supply chains were back to more normal operation.
Usdaw, Salford – CAT B
Works have commenced on this 40,000 sq ft CAT B fit out for USDAW (Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers). Workspace Design and Build act as Principal Contractor on the project and have been involved in every stage in the process from design of the full project to providing the furniture – all with in-house capability. The project management and acquisition is being handled by Manchester based Edwards & Co. This impressive building is split over 5 floors and is set to be a transformation from the existing interior.
Paddy Lillis, Usdaw General Secretary said: “This design of our new office has been in the making since the beginning of March so we’re really looking forward to seeing it come to life”.
PortSwigger, Knutsford – CAT B
This is an exciting project win for Workspace and one which is set to make heads turn with Sheila Bird Group as the designers for the space. The 60,000 sq ft blank canvas will soon be turned into an employee focused space for PortSwigger in the heart of Knutsford. Workspace’s in-house furniture specialist will work closely with Sheila Bird and Matthews & Goodman to deliver the vision of bringing the outside in. With works commencing in February, the team are working on getting everything ready to go so they can hit the ground running when the time comes.
37 Kings Street, Manchester – CAT A
In the heart of Manchester, this CAT A project has undertaken full strip out, ready for full modernisation throughout. Split over 4 floors, this much sought-after office space will be ready for tenants to look round in January with the help of Sixteen Real Estate.
Russell Davis, MD at Workspace Design and Build said: “These recent project wins are testament to the hard work of our team during the pandemic – we’ve all worked together to continue to service our clients in the best way possible whilst being respectful of the current situation. Construction is and always will be a resilient industry, and Workspace are proud to be a part of it”.
