Blueprint Interiors has appointed a new contracts manager.

Paul Brown brings 23 years’ experience to the workplace consultancy and commercial office fit-out specialists having managed a wide range of high-profile projects for blue-chip clients.

Brown holds a CSCS licence and a number of NEBOSH general, construction and fire safety certificates.

He said: “This is slight change of industry sector and is an exciting new challenge. I am looking forward to gaining the sense of achievement I get from successfully completing the fantastic looking and people orientated bespoke commercial office fit outs for which Blueprint Interiors is renown.”

Blueprint’s creative and commercial director Chloe Sproston added: “Our workplace consultancy process has always preceded our design recommendations. We are finding that this advice is now more important than ever as office managers seek ways to transform their largest overhead – their office space – into a place which attracts the very best talent and inspires them to work to their best ability. With Paul’s skills we will be able to ensure the construction phases continue to meet the highest standards.”
