Fletcher Group, Dundee One
Fletcher Group is a shipowner which operates a fleet of platform supply vessels supporting the offshore energy industry in the North Sea. Having decided to relocate over 20 staff to a new headquarters in the recently-built Dundee One development, Fletcher Group approached SPACE to provide them with a design and construction package.
The location at Dundee One was chosen purposely, as it’s a modern office development which lies at the heart of the £1bn Central Waterfront regeneration scheme. The Waterfront also includes a new hotel for Sleeperz which SPACE also designed, commercial developments, a new railway station, plus the V&A Dundee design museum, which is due to open in September 2018. Fletcher Group’s scheme consisted of the fit-out of part of a shell and core floorplate, comprising a boardroom, cellular and open plan offices, breakout and tea prep areas plus ancillary accommodation. From an initial approach in July 2017, the scheme was designed and constructed in a short time frame, which enabled the client to move in during November 2017.
Our design approach reflected Dundee One’s location, with flooring finishes taking inspiration from the weathered textures of a working dockside, and walls picking up the deep blue of the River Tay in summertime. The scheme’s colour palette also reflected Fletcher Group’s corporate identity, with their logo and the vivid red hulls of their ships picked up in the interior finishes. SPACE provided Fletcher Group with a full turnkey service, including interior design, principal designer, quantity surveyor, fit-out contracting, and furniture supply. The scheme’s floor area is around 275sq.m. and the contract value was approximately £80,000.
“SPACE took note of our requirements & our budget limitations and came up with a few alternatives. After a few minor tweaks they project managed the re-fit. This allowed us to continue with our day job leaving SPACE to do their best. As a result, the project was completed within the timescale and on budget…What every Client dreams of.”
