Leading workplace consultant, Saracen Interiors has made its way further into the residential market having started work on the refurbishment of a luxury, five-bedroom, £2 million property in Guildford, Surrey.
Work on the project started in March and is due to take up to six months. The project covers all design work; structural repairs; electrical work; new floors, including underfloor heating installation, kitchen and roof; the removal of walls to create an open-plan area incorporating lounge, kitchen and dining space; extension to the back of the property and redecoration throughout.
Best known for its award-winning office designs, along with its ability to create flexible, working environments, Saracen agreed to take on the residential project on behalf of a client who is keen to make the most of his living space. Joint managing director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page explains: “It was initially intended as a favour for a client who wanted to reconfigure and extend his home however the team is relishing this fresh challenge and we are all enjoying applying our skills and knowledge within a new sector.
Over the past decade, Saracen’s status has gradually changed from a South East fit out concern to a national full service enterprise. Its number of staff has grown along with its turnover and the company continues to invest in local apprentices, training initiatives and industry-specific innovations such as BIM.
