Eastlight Community Homes in Braintree were in the process of a merger with nearby Colne Housing Association in order to create a larger and more efficient entity.
Claremont were approached to review and develop an engagement process across the two businesses with the aim of bringing the business and colleagues together under one roof, and to ensure all practical and cultural considerations were covered prior to launching into the phase 2 design stage.
Claremont had been appointed from the outset following a competitive tender to deliver the workplace consultancy, concept / visual designs and a final full design with construction packs for commercial tendering. Claremont delivered the open book tender process for the client a appointed all sub-contractors with works commencing on site on the 6th July 2020.
The refurbishment project covered the entire building and created new work settings and facilities which are suitable for a post COVID-19 occupancy and are what we term “Future Flexible” managed and delivered entirely by Claremont.
