Scottish Gas – Granton Office 2003 (£1.2 million furniture budget)
Sara’s work involved design development and strategic space analysis for the Scottish Gas (1800 people) contact centre and head office in Granton, Edinburgh. Scottish Gas required a reassessment of the space strategy for a rapidly growing work force during the design development phase of the building. Rather than adding to or extending the building we developed a furniture and occupancy strategy which enabled maximum flexibility and churn with minimal re-configuration work to the layout. Sara worked closely with the project architects, Foster & Associates, to develop the furniture design and specification, in addition to providing tender co-ordination and post tender analysis.
