FAST-GROWING OFFINCE FIT OUT COMAPNY THORNTON PROJECT SOLUTIONS, WINS A 9,000sq ft FAST-TRACK DESIGN & BUILD PROJECT CONTRACT
Fast-growing office fit out company Thornton Project Solutions has won another new office fit out contract, a fast-track fit out to refurbish the 9,000sq ft flood damaged offices of Infor Global Solutions in Kettering, Northants.
On June 14th 2007, it took just 10 minutes for flood waters in Kettering to rise four feet, causing millions of pounds of damage to many local homes and businesses. One business affected was Pegasus Software, now part of Infor Global Solutions. As a nearby brook burst its banks, water ran down a nearby hill like a river.
The 81 staff had to be rescued in dinghies by the fire brigade. And despite millions of litres of water destroying furniture, lifting the floors and destroying 10 servers, 80 computers, and all the stock, the business was open for business again within 24 hours in a nearby hotel, and some operations were quickly moved to another building.
Thornton Projects have been commissioned to fit out the 9000sq ft office through SP Property Services acting as the employer’s agent for client Infor Global Solutions. They will strip the damaged interior right back to the masonry before replastering and completely refitting the ground floor of the offices. This is to include both design and build of the new hi-spec interior for the commercial premises.
In order to rapidly restore normality to the business, the entire fit out project is to be completed by January. “The timescales are demanding and we will be coordinating our various subcontractors carefully in order to complete the project according to schedule,” commented Gary King, Managing Director of Thornton Project Solutions. “But we have over 45 years’ fit out project management experience and are more than confident of meeting our client’s objectives.”
“We are a highly experienced interior fit out team and aim to provide the very best project management services,” commented Steve Powell from Thornton Projects. “It’s a testament to our client’s confidence in our project management skills that they trust us to complete this project for them so quickly.”
In addition to the works themselves, Thornton’s have redesigned the office layout to provide a spacious reception area, a bright and modern, open plan office area with three additional training rooms, a luxury presentation area, new toilets, loading bay and dispatch area. So as to ensure Infor create the correct impression with their future clients the customer presentation and training areas will have a higher spec.

In the reception area, bespoke desk and office furniture from Thornton’s highly skilled in-house joinery shop will include a luxurious red cherry reception desk with hardwood top, matching hardwood doors and polished veneer counter table, and matching cupboards in addition to new graphics.

As a key feature of the ground floor office fit out, a lightweight, insulated, demountable partitioning system will be built into decorated galvanized steel wall, ceiling and floor tracking, thereby adding versatility to the office space. The high specification office space is also to be fitted out with suspended floors and trunking to provide for structured cabling of the offices.
And the quality of finish will even be high in the toilet area where travertine tiling will ensure a luxurious finish.
Thornton Projects are taking responsibility for the internal electrical work, flooring, ceilings, partitioning and finally, to ensure the modern and business like premises are well protected from future flood damage, Thornton Projects will manage the installation of state of the art flood prevention doors.
