Great Annual Savings Head Office
Seaham, County Durham
Bowman Riley designed the interior fit-out of a 57,000ft2 CAT B office for Great Annual Savings (GAS) located at Spectrum Business Park in Seaham, County Durham.
Working in collaboration with a commercial fit-out contractor, we have created a contemporary interior design concept for our client, GAS, a fast growing commercial utilities comparison company. GAS has experienced tremendous growth and their current office space on the same business park was full to capacity.
The brief was to create a dynamic forward-thinking office space for the company’s young sales team with a focus on wellbeing and staff retention. The business is a major employer in the local area and strives to create superb career opportunities to its existing workforce whilst also attracting a high calibre new staff.
To enable the client to understand what could be achieved, the design process involved full concept modelling of the existing three-storey office building including detailed space planning, computer generated visualisations and walk-throughs.
The spaces within the office accommodation will include 315 fixed workstations supported by quiet rooms, coffee bars and meeting spaces. A large ground floor bistro and breakout areas will feature off the central reception with a varied selection of flexible meeting and training rooms for staff, clients and visitors. Half of the second floor has been designed as a wellbeing suite with a large multi-functional space including changing room facilities, a canteen for over 150 people, a multi-purpose gym and a wellbeing suite for treatments.
The project is currently on site and due for handover this summer.
