Sintons law firm helps North East interior design company expand into new HQ
An interior design practice which specialises in residential and retirement living is set to quadruple the size of its regional headquarters to aid expansion.
Bernard Interiors is looking to its next stage of growth through moving to a new 5,000 sq ft headquarters, relocating from its previous base in Ponteland.
Founded in 2008, the company will now be based in the former St Barnabus & St Jude Church Centre in Sandyford, with investment being made in converting the premises into a design studio and showroom.
The expansion of its premises also allows Bernard Interiors to accommodate its growing design team, which currently has 14 people but is predicted to have at least 20 within the next two years.
Jen Bernard, founder and managing director of Bernard Interiors, said the new headquarters offers ‘great’ potential to the business.
She said: “We have doubled in size every two years since 2015. Our move into our new head office is a big part of our further growth and we are predicting that by 2020 we will have 20 people working here.
“We are now in a position where we have people moving from London to join us, so and we want to be able to add more great people to the talented team we already have in place.”
Bernard Interiors was supported with its expansion by law firm Sintons, with real estate partner Alok Loomba and associate Danielle Dale overseeing the acquisition of St Barnabus & St Jude Church Centre.
