Office Design in London

Contemporary Office Design

The essence of workplace interior design is the ability to interpret the clients brief to reflect their vision and brand through the creative process, but to balance this equally within the practical and physical restraints of the built environment. At Saracen we use all of our 30 years of experience in office design to create bespoke interiors of the highest standard from humble practical spaces to cutting edge contemporary schemes for the modern office environment. 

The Design Process

From large-scale office refurbishments and relocations to small office design and fit out projects, our approach is the same.

Trust

Before putting pen to paper, we like to get a feel for your business and discuss the requirements for your environment. Together, we will share ideas to begin the design process

Design

We will survey your current workspace to determine what you need from your office design now and what you could need in the future. Once design starts, we will work closely with you to reach an approved concept. Costs, timings and resources will be agreed and adhered to throughout the project.

Build

Based on the approved designs, our professional team will work on-site to undertake the office refurbishment or fit out with minimum disruption to your day-to-day activities.

Finishing

With decoration complete and office furniture installed, your dedicated project manager will oversee all work, ensuring a quality job right down to the last detail.

Complete

Our clients keep coming back to us, something we are extremely proud of. We aim throughout the design process to build a long-term relationship based on honesty, trust, excellent customer service and results.

Workplace Consultancy

Workplace issues are ever present in a thriving office environment. Our very best outcomes are gained when our consultant team are fully engaged with clients in their overall business property strategy. Spatial analysis, time use studies and spatial efficiency reviews will act as a guide and catalyst for practical decisions along the journey for your office environments. You could be in the middle of relocation plans, at a very early stage of considering your strategy or experiencing challenges with your current space. In any instance our team are experienced and well placed to support you.

 
 

The Brief

99% of our clients have an idea or a seed of a vision of how their office space should be designed and a very strong understanding of their current structure and systems. It is our job to tease this detail from the senior management team along with valuable input from the wider client team and to represent the data and information in a clear and concise manner. The ensuing brief document will provide a template to use as the building block for the rest of the design process.

Building Assessment

By conducting a range of technical assessments from mechanical and electrical systems through to security, fire prevention and riser and communication suitability we are able to assess the suitability of a building for your needs. This is done simultaneously with space plans and outline design work to give you a strong guide to make this important decision from.

 
 

Vision and Concept

This is the point where all the planning and preparation become tangible. Utilising the outline space plans we will mastermind a full design concept which will mirror your company image, culture and vision. This concept is then visualised with 3D imagery and mood boards giving you total clarity as to the proposed scheme well before any financial commitment or physical work is started.

Detailed Design

This is the point where we turn all of our visions and aspirations into a workable solution. We will finalise the space plans before transforming these into working drawings and technical plans for the services your office will require. After finalising the detailed specification, risk assessments, statutory approvals and overall due diligence is carried out to ensure we are ready to proceed to the delivery phase of your project.
