Interior design consultancy lands office hat-trick
Office Principles North has secured two new refurbishment projects at a Warwick office block where it is already delivering a £4.5m upgrade.
The interior design consultancy has been appointed to carry out a pair of CAT B fit outs at the Building 2 development at Opus 40 Business Park, Haywood Road, on behalf of companies in the medical and healthcare sectors.
Medical equipment manufacturer Quanta Dialysis Technologies plans to open a 23,293 sq ft development facility at the revamped office building, which will include clinical and non-clinical areas, static safe environments and thermally controlled rooms.
Office Principles will also design and deliver a 9,505 sq ft activity-based, hybrid working environment for Europe’s leading diagnostic and molecular imaging services provider Alliance Medical.
The two projects will be carried out in parallel with Office Principles’ delivery of a CAT A programme of works at the building, which is being rebranded and comprehensively refurbished by landlord, FI Real Estate Management (FIREM).
The scheme at the former IBM campus will be known as The Woods, and will provide office space at a variety of sizes, including the provision of coworking space for freelancers, small businesses and those looking for satellite offices. More than half of the project has already been pre-let before its expected completion in Q4 2022.
Tina Batham, joint managing director of Office Principles North, said that combining the landlord and CAT B works at The Woods, would deliver significant cost savings to its two latest occupiers.
She said: “We’ve worked at incredible speed to fast track the design of both new projects, so that they complete at the same time as the CAT A refurbishment of the building. This will not only deliver a faster programme for Quanta Dialysis Technologies and Alliance Medical, it will also be far more cost effective for them too.
“Both new occupiers carry out hugely important work in the healthcare sector and we’re thrilled to be delivering two very different spaces, to suit their requirements. The Woods is an exciting landlord refurbishment that we’re proud to be delivering with FIREM and we’re confident it will cater for the changing needs of businesses in the region.”
