Kellas Midstream (formerly CATS) Central North Sea operator specialising in gas transportation and process systems, appointed SPACE to design and fit out their new flagship offices on the 7th floor in the prestigious Grade A Silver Finn office building, Union Street Aberdeen. Outgrowing their previous serviced office space, SPACE were briefed to create modern office to accommodate up to 27 staff complete with front of house Reception, Board room and client space and support areas such as focus rooms and copy print facilities. It was important to layout the offices making best use of the full height glazed elevations overlooking the city below and afar. The open plan office and Board room make best of the 7th floor views.
Due to the deep floor plate where natural light is less effective we created a central island accommodating, phone booth, focus rooms, smaller meeting space and copy print facilities, the central core also helps define public and private workspace discretely controlled via secure doors from Reception through to the main office areas.
Working closely with the client, it was clear from the start that both functionality and aesthetics were very important to reflect the vision for their flagship office. The layout was agreed very early however the finishes and Interior Design was more involved focusing on the quality of materials from the bespoke reception desk, feature lights and modern flooring designs. Fresh off white walls keep a neutral fresh feel complimented by the bespoke manifestation which introduces the palette of brand colours and new geometric design throughout the office space. The bench style desking makes most efficient use of the workspace providing individuals with team and individual workspaces. The staff area and informal meeting space is set to the rear providing agile workspaces for staff to break away from the desks for lunch or team meetings to complete the different settings.
Testimonial from Julie Jamieson Office Manager.
"Space Solutions was an excellent choice for Kellas Midstream (formerly CATS Management) during our recent office relocation to The Silver Fin Building. The team provided the complete package assisting from start to finish. They were involved from the beginning, after we viewed potential new premises, until moving in day and beyond. After spending time with us and assessing our needs, Space produced the design, applied for the building warrant and carried out the fit out works within the specified time frame whilst managing the contractors (joinery, electrical, mechanical, manifestation, blinds, floor coverings and decoration) and were instrumental with suggestions for the interiors. The support and patience provided by Stephen Griffiths and the Space/Transform team during the project was invaluable to me and certainly helped for a smooth transition from our old office to our 'new home!'"
