Here at Ultimate we work with a huge range of clients, from schools and restaurants to public service institutions and office workplaces. The work we carry out depends entirely on what is required for that particular client. What works for a media office certainly won’t be the same as what works for a law firm, meaning every undertaking is completely bespoke.
Equally, some projects are more challenging than others, so when St Philips Barristers asked us to perform a full fit out and refurbishment of their prestigious Leeds building, we knew it would require use every resource in our arsenal to complete the job to a standard that would reflect the premium service of such a reputable Barrister.
Set in the beautiful Georgian gardens of one Leeds most notable squares, this full turn-key project was more than just a full design and build, it required us to work in line with conservation requirements for the building every step of the way. Working on a listed building offered us a fantastic opportunity to broaden our range of skills and experience, undertaking the installation and reproduction of a collection of period features.
On the inside, solid and glazed partitions have been beautifully complemented by sets of walnut veneered doors to create office and conference rooms which can be professionally adapted to accommodate anywhere from 2 to 100 people. The building now offers comfort as well as state of the art multimedia facilities, including full A/V conferencing, reception, presentation and private phone facilities, dedicated Wi-Fi access and printing, and large modern mediation and arbitration rooms.
The exterior work saw us take part in external stone repairs and exterior decoration in line with conservation requirements, to make the outside of the building just as impressive as the inside. The main challenge for us was to retain the wonderful character of the period building, while at the same time equipping it with the functionality and technology to be successful in the 21st Century.
