We have now successfully reached the End of Defects period for CIM Services Ltd’s offices in Nursling, Southampton and despite the ongoing lockdown restrictions, the clients have now moved in and settled well into their new offices.

Studio Four were appointed to design an extension to the existing office building from conception to completion to accommodate the client’s growing workload and employee numbers. The extension has squared off the footprint of the existing ‘L’ shaped building with a curtain walling system to provide a more contemporary appearance. The glazing includes integral blinds for solar control. The works also included a new, feature entrance canopy and reception area, a new staircase, shower facilities and a communal kitchenette and break out space.

Overall, the proposals have created a new large, bright and airy workspace that has facilitated the company’s ambitions for expansion.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic causing some disruption to the works, the project was able to still be safely and successfully delivered on time and on budget with a high quality build by DC Builders (Southern) Ltd.’
