Work was undertaken in the basement library, to make good the damage caused by a leak, with painstaking care and attention taken by the team to ensure that all refurbishments met the high standards and quality of the current fitting of this high design, Grade 2 listed building. The project took just under five weeks to finish, with Saracen taking on board the need for its tenants to resume full occupancy as soon as possible.
Director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page comments: “Taking on any work in a building that has heritage status always requires thought as well as skill as there is an onus on respecting and preserving the original design work. We had to be particularly meticulous, especially when we worked on the ceiling area, as we wanted to make sure that the detailed edging was perfect.
“Projects like these usually require some time however we knew that ESU didn’t have this luxury and was keen to reclaim occupancy as soon as possible. A key part of our role is to accommodate and support our clients and so we made the turnaround time a priority in order to ensure a speedy delivery.”
They were incredibly professional and reassuring; sensitive to both our needs as a working charitable institution and the design of the building itself.We would happily work with them again.
