Saracen answers ‘call’ from expanding information group

Saracen Interiors has completed a significant, bespoke, fit out project for Callcredit Information Group as the leading intelligent marketing and credit solutions provider expands its London commercial space.

The company has now taken over the first floor of the Red Lion Buildings on Cock Lane in Smithfield, adding to its space by an extra 10,000 square foot with a tailored design, encompassing unique and sophisticated features. The customised space has been designed by Saracen to reflect the brand, while accommodating further expansion and allowing for extra meeting rooms for staff occupying the third floor of the same building.

Work started in March of this year and was completed by the popular workplace consultant in June. The complete fit out included a ‘batcave’ meeting room with large TV screens, new suspended ceilings and flooring throughout, a kitchen and breakout area, the installation of LED Lighting and new furniture. The occupied third floor was also refurbished by Saracen with extra care taken to prevent undue disruption to business activity for its client.

Director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page comments: “Work for this client involved an intensive period of creativity and development, in the early design stages, to ensure that any space planning and subsequent fit out activity – right down to the furniture selected and the mix of colours used – supported and honoured the brand.

“Once the job was underway, the focus necessarily shifted to the minimisation of any disruption as the client was keen to adopt a ‘business as usual’ approach. At Saracen, we will always make every effort to support such an approach, regardless of the scale of the job and its location, as part of our role is to understand and protect the client’s business. It’s an ongoing process which lasts until all work is complete.”

Over the last decade, Saracen has built a strong reputation with London-based clients, working across a wide range of commercial projects from multi-million fit outs to facilities management contracts and the negotiation of office moves. The company has a proven track record in improving workplace efficiency and corporate standing with its tailor-made, cost-effective solutions.
