Turning the impossible into the possible - creating an exciting new breakout area

Turning the impossible into the possible – creating an exciting new breakout area

The Brief

Greenmill had new tenants arriving in their building. They needed a trade counter and warehouse stripped out and converted into open plan offices. A mezzanine floor in the warehouse needed to be transformed into a breakout area. This needed to be thoroughly analysed to ensure the building would conform structurally and meet the stringent conformities of fire regulations.

An existing breakout area needed to be transformed into toilet facilities. The work needed to be done without disrupting the daily operations of the business where an active sales team deal with high levels of telephone calls.

Greenmill had already been through an extensive office fit out project and were not satisfied by the previous company due to a lack of understanding and initiative in what Greenmill wanted. Furthermore, there was little design or space planning discussed before the project commenced. They were unclear of the options they had due to the various structural challenges including height differences, fire risk hazards and access issues between the different rooms that were being transformed. It was clear that BrookhouseUK were the right company to partner with.

Our Solution

With all the projects that BrookhouseUK are favoured to be involved with, collaboration of our designers and space planners is critical. Following a brainstorm meeting internally, the designs started coming together and we were truly excited at how the space was becoming truly inspired! After a consultation session with the fire inspector and structural engineer, we were given the go ahead to proceed with our plans. They themselves were sceptical as to whether it was going to be possible to achieve such a result!

We felt the offices needed more natural light so we installed four large windows to achieve our desired result. The server was then installed and the data cabling followed. We then built the new conference room area and reception using glass screening. Whilst the offices were taking shape, another team were working hard on the mezzanine. The kitchen was installed including instant boiling water taps, two ovens, dishwashers and a fridge and freezer. The roof space was then sprayed using the latest technology to create a stunning effect.

The directors have been contemplating separating the new breakout area and using this as their new offices! As a result, we aren’t allowed to install the furniture as yet whilst they decide!
