Leading workplace consultant, Saracen Interiors is fast positioning itself as a supplier of choice for WYG, having been awarded a further two contracts for the global project management and technical consultancy in Birmingham and Southampton.
The 2,700 sq ft Birmingham job is an office refurbishment, fast-track project which is due to be completed in less than three weeks. The Southampton contract includes partitioning alterations, air conditioning alterations, the installation of emergency lighting and decoration in WYG’s 6,500 sq ft office. The latter is expected to be completed during May with work being carried out across a number of weekends to avoid any disruption to staff.
Saracen recently started a full office fit out for WYG in Swindon covering 3,000 sq ft of space. This work was preceded by two jobs which finished earlier in the year and included the provision of move management and refurbishment services in Leicester and Liverpool.
The five contracts reflect Saracen’s strong relationship with WYG in recent years, with the office fit out expert providing a range of design, move management, small works and fit out services at a number of WYG’s offices around the UK.
Joint managing director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page is delighted that the team is building on its existing relationship with WYG: “We’ve come a long way with this client and have developed a core understanding of the company’s culture and its needs. Our aim has been to present ourselves as an extension of the WYG team and, as a result, they call on us for projects of differing sizes around the UK, trusting us to support them with minimal disruption to their staff. It’s a great position to be in and we look forward to increasing the support as we move forward.”
Property manager for WYG, Paul Green adds: “The team at Saracen consistently enables us to maintain a working environment – which is always appreciated. We trust the team’s suggestions and are confident that we are in safe hands and that goes a long way to taking the stress out of any individual project. The quality of finish in the schemes completed by Saracen has been to a high standard and has significantly improved our working environments.”
