Skipton International – Guernsey




You might recall from February, that we refurbished Skipton Building Society’s Leeds branch. Well, we’re back at it again – this time working with their sister company, Skipton International, in the middle of the English Channel.

Leaving mainland Britain behind us, if only for a week, our trusted team of experienced builders, fitter and decorators headed to the capital of Guernsey – the Roman, St. Peter’s Port.

Among the yachts and the old trading post’s steep narrow streets, we found what’s believed to be the closest church to a pub in the British Isles. And, of course the Skipton International office – from which, they provide saving products and mortgages to expats.

Here, we set to work installing quirky features and bespoke elements. Skipton International requested everything from bench desks, meeting tables and bespoke advisor desks, with blue fabric privacy partitions and built in monitor arms, to various height storage.

Soon enough, we fitted the rest of their new office and break out room furniture too – our pedestals, soft seating and acoustic wall art found a forever home, right here in Guernsey. As did our bespoke storage unit, on the far wall.

We then turned our attention to the walls, hot on the heels of this year’s most dominant interior design trend. Now is a perfect time to bring the outside in, nature inspired decor not only looks the part, but is widely believed to reduce employee stress and improve company wellbeing. So in this instance, we canvassed a wall with a feature image of a coastal inlet, then hung large portraits of a donkey and bluebell covered forest scenes too.

It’s a true honour to build such strong relationships with our clients, we take great pride in nurturing and building them – by doing our utmost to advise them and fulfil their visions to the very best of our ability.
