Project overview

The scheme was to renovate the 36,000sqft 4th floor of a Grade II Listed mill to provide new office accommodation for up to 400 staff across numerous sectors of the company.  The floor plans and staff seating layouts were designed to achieve the best location for each department in relation to their work (art department, accounts, etc) and their interactions with other departments for improved efficiency. 
In addition, the design provided a new reception, managers offices, staff canteen and rest areas, photography studio, training theatre, break-out areas, formal and informal meeting spaces, printing areas, recycling stations, sample product storage facilities, staff lockers, shower facilities (to help promote cycling to work) and bathrooms.  HNA worked with a largely Oldham based design & construction team to achieve the clients aims and help secure the long term future for one of Oldham’s listed mills.
