Barristers’ Chambers at Gray’s Inn Square undergoes major refurbishment

Workplace consultant Saracen Interiors has completed fit out and refurbishment work at the barristers’ Chambers at Gray’s Inn Square, London.

The listed building, which contains a practice used by between 60 and 70 barristers on a ‘hot desking’ basis, was completely refurbished earlier this month.

Work included minor alterations, general refurbishment and electrical installation over two floors.

Bespoke furniture and storage systems were sourced and fitted, the latter addressing the need for security given the sensitivity of the documents handled in Chambers.

Saracen’s Move Management division played a key role in the project supplying and moving up to 90 crates to free up space for the alterations.

Joint managing director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page commented: “It’s good to have various Saracen divisions working in tandem as it demonstrates to the clients that all their office space needs can be met by a single source, with teams working in support of each other so that there are no gaps in communication and little margin for error.

“We’ve built a portfolio of general refurbishment projects in the City of London over the last 12 months. A lot of the work has been for investment banks and various other finance establishments so it’s good to exercise our expertise across other professional services, especially when the address is as prestigious as 1 Gray’s Inn Square.”

Senior clerk at Gray’s Inn Square, Matthew Wildish is pleased with the level ofsupport he has received from the project manager at Saracen and looks forward to working with the team again: “The team at Saracen worked hard to accommodate our barristers and to ensure that each working day went largely undisturbed. Problems were anticipated and ironed out in advance and the project ran smoothly with an outstanding result at the point of final handover. It’s been a pleasure working with a team of such dedicated, expert professionals.”

The fit out is the latest in a long line of contract wins for the workplace consultants, including a complete office refurbishment projects for investment management company, Ferox Capital LLP, a £120k fit-out for a Shariah trading investment bank on Old Broad Street, and a major fast-track refurb for Creature of London.
