Saracen Interiors has completed its first major fit out contract for Enviva at the international, clean energy provider’s second office in York. The accomodation, secured to host the company’s growing UK team, comprises of a single floor containing around 3,000 sq ft of space.
Design details included a carefully angled layout, bespoke feature rafts, perimeter bulk heads, feature panelling from reclaimed timber, tailored joinery, eye-catching signage and graphic wall manifestations and canvasses.
Saracen has won awards for its design work in recent years and, given its raised profile in the North over the last 12 months, it was a clear contender for a project which focused heavily on design, according to its Project Director, Dave Browne: “We’ve been involved in some stand out projects in Yorkshire since we first established a presence in the North and our reputation as experts with an enthusiasm for design has grown in recent times thanks to the team’s hard work and its excellent record of smooth handover and delivery.
“It’s been great for the team to engage with a company such as Enviva as they were happy to give us scope to explore a variety of ideas to make the space stand out and to deliver a flavour of the business and its brand.”
A prominent player in the South East, Saracen now hopes to build on its business in the North, positioning itself as a national concern with local links and knowledge. It recently opened an office at Manchester’s Media City, providing the team with a base from which to operate.
