Office Renovation at 1 Dorset Street, Southampton

Hampshire | Cat A Fit Out | 24,000 sq ft | 14 Week Project

We stripped this Southampton office back to basics, ready for an injection of personality from future tenants. Read on to discover what this Cat A office renovation in Southampton included and how we achieved the stunning outcomes.

Project Brief

Our task was to transform an occupied area into an inviting open plan environment, tailored to accommodate a diverse range of tenants. With a focus on creating a versatile blank canvas, we embarked on a comprehensive strip out and redesign project.

From the ground up, we reimagined the space, ensuring every aspect reflected flexibility and modernity. This included a complete overhaul, including the flooring, neutral decor, ceiling treatments, intricate electricals, secure fire doors, and efficient mechanical systems. 

The Solution

HQ Renovations worked with the client brief to create a meticulous overhaul, not only revitalising the space but creating a pristine, versatile blank canvas throughout the building, with our signature effort and attention to detail as well as significantly elevating its Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating. To complete this project, we performed a number of tasks over three to four months, including:

  • Entire Building Renovation
  • HQ Renovations managed the office renovation of the entire Southampton office renovation, which was 24,000 sq ft in size. Our team are well-equipped to handle projects of all sizes.

  • Aircon Throughout
  • For enhanced comfort, we installed an aircon throughout the premises. We were conscious of energy efficiency while also installing a system capable of producing excellent heating and cooling performance.

  • Ground Floor and Top Floor Cat A Renovation
  • We completed a Cat A renovation on the ground floor, roughly 2,883 sq ft in size. We also completed a Cat A renovation on the top floor, roughly 4000 sq ft. A Cat A fit-out involves the fundamental makeover a property owner undertakes on a vacant office area prior to leasing it to occupants. This particular refurbishment includes the installation of elevated flooring, hanging ceilings, illumination, and climate control setups. The objective is to furnish a functional and practical environment, allowing tenants to personalise it with their furnishings and other personal touches.

  • Fan Coils and Pipework Throughout
  • Our team also led the necessary works related to fan coils and pipework throughout the entire building which included risers.

    The Results

  • Enhanced Energy Efficiency: Maximising Potential Savings
  • By implementing advanced energy-efficient solutions, we ensured the building met and exceeded efficiency criteria, translating to tangible benefits for tenants, as reduced energy consumption leads to lower operational costs.

  • Versatile Opportunity: Empowering Tenant Creativity
  • Our transformation created a versatile space that the new occupants could adapt as needed to their evolving needs; by removing partition walls and previous decorative elements. 

  • Unmatched Excellence: Dedication That Drives Success
  • What sets us apart is not just our ability to deliver outstanding results, but our genuine care and meticulous attention to detail which was evident throughout this entire project.
