Boardmans Office Fit Out

Home + Projects + Commercial + Boardmans Office Fit Out

Project story

Boardmans Design are a long-established leading international Manchester based Fashion Brand trading for over a century. The expanding business wanted a new home with all their facilities in one site Select Interiors were initially called by Managing Director enquiring about potential development. We visited their existing offices in shall we diplomatically say a dilapidated building in one of Manchester’s less salubrious areas.

We met (with the greatest respect and fondness) the Managing Director who was an extremely well-heeled chap in his existing premises which were as described diplomatically above as dilapidated. We wondered whether the project was really a good fit for us. A few weeks later we received a call saying he had found a building to buy and would we meet him on site

We visited site and explained the scope of conversion and refurbishment, build and fit out works: conversion of the commercial warehouse to offices, enlarged W.C.s, Showers, 2 kitchens, breakout, events space, boardroom, showrooms, a samples room and warehouse. The budget was extremely tight, and that he required full mechanical design and application to building control and planning for the change of use. After we received the extensive brief we were puzzling outside the building trying to work out how we could do it for the budget, a car passed and we saw a wave as the client exited the car park in what my designer Umair described as a top of the range Porche, we fell about laughing as we’d received a story of extremely tight budgets and little funding for the project

Select Interiors office designers and fit out submitted and developed 2 & 3D design drawings, submitted and managed the applications to Building Control and Planning for the conversion & refurbishment completing all the works over 10 weeks. Select Interiors Creators and Makers for offices, showrooms and commercial interiors for 34 years
