Starting as we mean to go on.
WeWork Manchester was our first project with the coworking giants. We were tasked with fully fitting out two floors plus a mezzanine. We started with nothing but a shell but by the time we finished they had a stunning workspace that met their existing and consistent standards.
Working to their model.
Here at TSK, we know every business is different which is why we tackle all our briefs with agility, flexibility, and adaptability. WeWork came to us with their plan for Manchester, their design pack, and their standardisation requirements.
They knew how many offices they wanted and how many people each needed to accommodate. They knew which kind of light fixtures they did and didn’t like. And they knew what style furniture they wanted and where.
We helped them turn their vision into construction drawings and build their space from the ground up, just the way they imagined it.
Making their space safe
The floors WeWork hired in No. 1 Spinningfields weren’t originally designed to accommodate the headcount they projected, so, we worked on a full CAT A and CAT B fit-out to ensure their numbers weren’t affected, but their people in Manchester were all safe.
To do just that, we stripped out all the existing lighting and ceiling installations and completely remodified the previous electrical, plumbing, and sprinkler systems.
Delivering WeWork's first Manchester space on time.
When WeWork first came to us in August they had a pretty tight deadline for their first coworking space. They already had the demand for their workspace and they had their design plans in place, they just needed someone to materialise them. And we did.
We brought their brief to life, overhauled the building’s CAT A and CAT B fittings, and built a staircase from the mezzanine up to floor two. All right to schedule.
