Project background

With over 150 employees and growing, manufacturing specialist Advanced Engineering Techniques (AET) had outgrown its previous office space. The Sheffield-based company needed new facilities, and fast.

The brief

AET sought to transform redundant space on Holbrook Industrial Estate, into a fresh 200sqm office facility with restrooms, which would support the team’s ongoing expansion. Expertise of a multi-disciplined contractor was therefore required, to help overhaul this underutilised commercial space.

In stepped Leeds-based Fraser Projects…

A four week strip out and refurbishment project followed, which required the expertise of25 of Fraser Projects’ skilled tradespeople. The turnkey solution comprised:

• Clear out of existing office and canteen area, with removal of partition walls, ceilings, bathrooms and carpets, to create new storage mezzanine
• Renovation of the building’s bottom floor, with the creation of new door openings, installation of replacement casings, architraves, partition walls, doors, windows and bathroom suite
• Full plastering and decoration of walls, ceilings and woodwork
• Laying of new carpets and vinyl flooring
• Installation of high security external steel door.

And now..?

AET now has a bright new workspace with handy storage facilities to accommodate the ever-growing team. The client was impressed with Fraser Projects’ skill-set and approach to work, and has therefore appointed them to carry out a next phase contract.

We were extremely pleased with the professionalism, skill and seamless delivery of Fraser Projects’ expertise. So much so, we have appointed them to carry out a further four week interior fit out contract in the same unit. At the end of this second phase of works, our employees will also be able to enjoy a self-contained canteen and social area – the finished facility will be very different indeed!
