The Brief

Working alongside Laidlaw Estates, the asset managers and letting agents we created a scheme which would enhance the features of the asset. The brief was to create a light and airy space, a premium CAT A fit out that would appeal to the best tenants looking for new office space along the M4 corridor. Equally there was a need for a shared, outdoor, feature seating area. An outdoor amenity that is a visually appealing selling point for the surrounding buildings.

what we did

After striping out the existing office and kitchen our team completed a CAT A renovation of the space including new mechanical and electrical services. Then, to take the space to the next level we installed a statement, double glass door leading into the proposed reception area demarked by premium, chevon flooring and a black mesh ceiling detail to give the impression of height. With employee wellbeing in mind, consistent lighting was installed throughout and feature lighting was placed in the reception area.

To support the ongoing marketing of the location and using our in-depth knowledge of tenant decision making, we created a series of space plans and CGIs to help prospective occupiers visualise the value offered by the space.

The outside feature space creates a beautiful centre piece to the buildings whilst proudly displaying the Waterside Drive logo. The circular design and semi-circular seating frames the easily maintainable landscaped gardens. The outdoor space provides an area for community building and socialising.

the results

The space at Two Waterside Drive has been transformed into an open, light and appealing workplace, an exceptional office that is ready for its future tenants. Furthermore, the landscaped area uplifts the ambiance of the outdoor space, creating an warm welcome for prospective and current tenants alike. The project was delivered on time and within the agreed budget.
