High Praise Indeed!
Forgive us for blowing our own trumpet, but we thought this was worth a little bit of blog space. At the end of every project we like to get feedback from our clients. Once this one was completed, Matthew Jones of Jones Hargreaves LLP responded with the following reference. You can see the full project case study here.
“The refurbishment and fit out works on the ground floor at Marshalls Mill presented a challenge for all parties, namely combining Cat A (Landlord Refurbishment) and Cat B (Tenant Fit Out) to achieve a 5 week on-site programme within a Grade 2* listed building.
The works to the 6500sq ft suite were comprehensive and included new heating, lighting and electrical installations, WCs, shower, kitchens, subdivision to create meeting rooms and offices and the installation of high quality finishes. Ben Johnsons were responsible for the Cat B design and delivery of the completed works on site and their team quickly gained a full understanding of the landlord’s and tenant’s aims, together with the constraints of working with a historic building. As a result, the design stage was completed quickly and efficiently and completed scheme met the clients aspirations and budgetary requirements.
Costs were also agreed with the minimum of fuss to enable the contract to be placed within 3 weeks of the initial meeting. Ben Johnsons were on site the following week, one week before Christmas. Throughout the contract, client design changes were incorporated without significant additional cost or effect on programme. The overall costs for the combined works was under £40/sq ft which took the suite from an unoccupied shell to a fully functioning modern office space.
Ben Johnsons impressed with their ability to accommodate a punishing timescale while still presenting a quality product at completion. This is in no small part due to their dedicated, knowledgeable and extremely hard working team.“
