What We Did
Having secured planning permission for a new office extension, our Client for the project - an expanding building services contractors based in Lancashire- commissioned Gilling Dod Interiors to maximise the value of the available space. The initial design brief for this project called for an innovative approach to space planning, and with careful consideration of planned usage and desking requirements Gilling Dod Interiors were able to propose several different layout options and design concepts for the client to select from. The chosen layout was an ideal balance between a large open plan office area and generous canteen and conference rooms- testament to A Connolly’s commitment to staff wellbeing, training and development. Following the success of the planning stage, Gilling Dod Interiors developed an interior design scheme designed to showcase the client’s strong branding, with bold use of colour, industrial style finishes, and large scale wall graphics reflecting the brand identity. The end result was a real celebration of the local area’s industrial heritage, with products being sourced locally from around the North West, and the client applying their own trade expertise to deliver the project to a tight timescale.
“Upstairs, the open environment has given us much needed storage, providing a fresher, more vibrant, creative & productive space, whilst the breakout area downstairs provides a chill out zone for staff to interact away from their work space. Everyone loves the new timber curved wall….impressive!”
