Project overview

Client: AO
Location: Baskerville House, Manchester
Project size: 37,000 sq ft
Timescale: 22 weeks

All go for AO

We took this building from an empty shell to a design-led contemporary workspace, and contributed to the aesthetic scheme as well as fitting out the interior. As the building was such a raw structure, we added soft finishes throughout to improve sound absorption. 

On the ground floor, we installed a full catering facility with a challenging design brief, and worked closely with AO’s catering provider to get it exactly right. Because of the short timescale and a target New Year opening date, we escalated the project over the Christmas period. We also ensured good communication and coordination with the landlord’s contractors to hit the tight deadline.


What They Say

When we were tendering for the fit-out of our 36,000sq ft. Manchester office, we needed a partner who could move at the same pace as us but who also offered the agile approach that we required with the fit-out. When we met with Spacescape we instantly knew they were the preferred contractor. Spacescape were very accommodating with our evolving requirements that sometimes changed daily. Spacescape also offered innovative solutions to problems that we came across and were a fundamental part in creating the modern vibrant workspace we have in the City Centre.

I would highly recommend Spacescape as a main contractor to other businesses, and I look forward to work with them on our next big venture.
