Marshall Errock Construction awarded Quantum2 with design, space planning and refurbishment fit-out work of their existing Headquarters in Oldham.
As the before pictures demonstrate, their premises had become outdated and cluttered, just like many other businesses throughout the country, when time is taken up concentrating on running a successful company.
The Quantum2 interior design team began by taking a brief to understand which improvements were key and would make their space a better place to work. The building itself is traditional, in keeping with the high street, so is limited with regards to building an extension to provide more space.
Being sensitive to the original building, it was crucial for Quantum2 to carefully space plan what room there was in order to make improvements to the way the MEC staff work - this was a challenging space for the design team.. but we do love a challenge!
Set within a terrace, the natural light is restricted to the front entrance, so white walls and daylight LED's to provide an airy feel were required. MEC's 'corporate green' has positive psychological properties that provide peace, balance and harmony, while giving the feeling of being connected to nature and feeling safe and secure - a great colour, therefore, to help us specify fabrics and carpet tiles!
As seen on the left, the design concept stage incorporated all fixtures, fittings, textures and colours to help the client visualise the finished product. This is a really important part of the planning as often questions arise when we do the ‘walk-through’ and new ideas come to mind which we can then discuss and incorporate where possible.
Cable managed desks were installed in all open plan areas and every member of staff were supplied with the same ergonomic task chair that can be tweaked to their seating preferences. Clutter was reduced to a minimum by cleverly designed storage solutions over both of the floors.
This full turnkey refurbishment fit-out was project managed and completed in two phases over a six week period.
All products & fabrics specified and installed by Quantum2 were from British manufacturers, carrying at least 5 year warranties.
"A big ‘Thank You’ to the team at Quantum2 Ltd for handling the entire MEC office refurb from start to finish bringing a sleek, modern finish. Their service was friendly, flexible, hassle-free and we would most definitely recommend them to any in need of a refurb."
