Fit-out contractors Workspace Design & Build (D&B) has won £3M worth of contracts since launching it’s second office in the Midlands earlier this year.

Projects won include the relocation of long-term client Bruntwood into their 2,000 sq ft of new office space at The Corner Block. Workspace has developed a strong working relationship with Bruntwood and is also currently on-site delivering the Bruntwood Works scheme 111 Piccadilly in Manchester.

Workspace has also been appointed by Loughborough University to deliver the AAE Labs – the team is on-site transforming with a seven-week project transforming the 10,000 sq ft space.

The team has also completed several projects across four locations for leading college for the creative industries, Access to Music developing facilities in Birmingham, Norwich, Shoreditch and Lincoln.

Specialist commercial and industrial water treatment provider WCS has appointed Workspace to deliver circa £1M of projects reconfiguring a manufacturing and storage facility in Daventry.

Shaun Smith, heading up the Midlands office of Workspace said: “Since launching the office a few months’ back the team has really hit the ground running and secured some amazing business opportunities. We are working on some exciting projects and it has been really good to introduce some new sectors to the group.”

Managing Director of Workspace Design & Build Russell Davis said: “It is brilliant to see the team forge ahead so quickly and make such an impact in the Midlands. Really pleased to see some of our existing clients support our new office and to win some of their business in the region.

“Last year was a record year for Workspace, launching our Midlands office earlier this year was a strategic decision and it is absolutely complementing our NW offering which is brilliant to see.”
