Following a period of continued growth, award-winning Northern Accountants had to reassess the use of its office space if it was to set the right impression for clients and staff.
This financial practice had enjoyed three successful years in its Howley Park offices in Morley, Leeds. But having gone from strength to strength and recruited along the way, it seemed there was limited scope for further expansion, within Northern Accountants’ existing premises.
In stepped Fraser Projects…
Conveniently located only a few miles away, Fraser Projects met Northern Accountants’ founder Phil Ellerby at the space planning and design phase, to assess how to make optimum use of the office environment.
Impressed with their ideas, Phil appointed Fraser Projects to undertake this interior fit out assignment. He explains: “Very quickly, the team swung into action, overhauling our ground floor by giving us a welcoming new reception, meeting room, more formal boardroom and archive room. Our office has moved to the first floor, where we now have an open plan scheme with 14 modern workstations, rather than the six desks we previously had downstairs. There is a well-equipped kitchenette up there too.
“Best of all, Fraser Projects took care of everything, from the new partitions, joinery and plastering to the plumbing and decorating. This seamless approach was exactly what we needed as a busy organisation.”
Phil concludes: “A very cost-effective investment in our current address means we have avoided the hassle and expense of an office relocation, and, thanks to Fraser Projects’ forward-thinking grasp of our vision, we can stay here for years to come.
“We now have a vibrant, professional and friendly workspace, akin to something you’d see in central Leeds. It sets the right impression the minute a customer walks through the door, and it provides employees with an open, energising and morale-boosting place to work.”
