ASPC - Refurbishment of New Premises

With the regeneration of Union Street being a key topic for local businesses, council and members of the public, it was exciting to work with ASPC on the relocation from their Chapel Street premises, to a new 'home' at Holburn Junction.

The project saw the refurbishment and fit out of the ground floor of the vacant building, a former bank, transforming it into a modern and inviting space. The prominent location provides a high level of visibility, with digital display boards displaying properties, while also creating a welcoming space for members of the public to seek assistance with viewing, buying and selling properties in the North East.

The existing floor plan was completely stripped out, with a new open plan design developed to maximise the layout and provide a balance of public, staff and meeting space. Individual offices, staff kitchen and toilets are located to the rear, with a central Boardroom formed off a main 'corridor' through the open plan area.

The public space is entered via a refurbished entrance on the corner of Holburn Street and Alford Place. A mix of casual seating, workstations and touch-screen kiosks assist with the process of viewing of properties, while a new reception desk helps to define the public/office areas and provides a focal point. The public area benefits from a separate Public Consulting office, where a meeting with a Solicitor can be arranged to review the buying and selling process, and discuss specific requirements.

The fit-out was completed to a high standard, with bespoke joinery, Crittall style glazed doors and screens, new lighting, heating, ceilings, toilets, kitchen and decoration throughout.
