After installing 3no. desks to their first office over 10 years ago and supporting the growth of CHN over the subsequent years, Ultimate were proud to be awarded the contract for the relocation and refurbishment of their new HQ on Gelderd Road, Leeds. The brief was for a modern office befitting a trusted financial institution with an alternative twist.
The fit out works commenced with the strip out of the existing air conditioning which was replaced with a new heating, comfort cooling and fresh air ventilation system which has improved capacity and lowered running costs.
The new offices provide flexible meeting space over two floors, with operable walls to create presentation space for up to 50 persons when required, and a unique open plan lounge area with the ceiling left open to the original structure. Suspended lighting, acoustics and a refreshment point for client entertaining and colleague use bring the two floors together and the client has said that this has resulted in the greater sharing of knowledge and has freed up meeting rooms where privacy is required.
The bright open reception area with bespoke counter, recessed and suspended lighting, cloak store wall with graphics and feature walls leads you into the first office area. Where existing Komfort LS90 double glazed partitions (recuperated from their previous offices) was incorporated into the new space with the increased ceiling height accommodated by feature plasterboard bulkheads. New suspended ceilings were installed with LED flat panel fittings and the geometric design was continued from the reception within the newly installed carpet tile.
The scheme continues to the further offices on the second floor where the buildings existing double-glazed partitions with full height doors were used to create consultant rooms & open plan work areas.
