Reside Housing Association specialises in accommodation for disabled people, and were seeking to move to a new office location to support the business needs of their organisation.
A suitable property was found in Hampton Wick, Teddington: a period building which was a former granary store located on the banks of the River Thames. Significant refurbishment was required in order to transform the property into a suitable office space with support facilities.
Premier Interiors were engaged to carry out the refurbishment works, and over the course of several meetings with Reside’s CEO, built an understanding of possible ways in which to convert the space into cellular offices: 5 for managers and small functional teams, a board room area and improvement of catering and staff welfare facilities.
Once the project details and budget were finalised, the works were planned to take place over 4 weeks, with a team from Premier Moves allocated to support the transition of the staff into the new offices.
The Premier Interiors team modernised the building with air conditioning, data cabling to optimise communications and fitted smoke and fire detection units. A swipe entry system was also installed. Alongside this, aesthetic improvements created a fresher look, making the office a pleasant place for staff to work.
Once the fit out and cleaning had been completed by Premier Interiors, furniture, filing and IT equipment were decommissioned in the former office and reinstalled in the new property over two phases by Premier Moves. Office Resale, Premier’s retail channel for high quality refurbished office furniture were able to supplement the existing stock of furniture to complete the required look of the newly refurbished offices.
