The building project and fit out took over an existing office, set over 5 floors, for conversion into departmental offices for the Estates, Finance, HR, Marketing, Legals and Governance and Student Service of the University.
The project had completed initial feasibility within the Estate team and we took over the concept designs and space planning. Our role was to undertake the Architectural detailing, interior designs, graphic and signage strategy, and space planning and furniture procurement.
The overall project was the creation of a modern bright and flexible work environment. Each departments needs were harmonised and balanced. The different needs of open plan working and cellular accommodation were dealt with separately without creating totally different work areas. Graphics and signage were designed by HL to give a corporate feel for the departments without necessarily using the main Teesside University logo as the main driver. We arranged the furniture procurement, procured all the loose and fixed FFE and arranged with suppliers for alternatives to hit the tight timelines.
