Intermain are proud to have partnered with Colliers and heritage consultants Nimbus Architecture & Heritage to deliver Microsoft Softwares’ latest “Microsoft Accelerator” office, located in the heritage listed Railway House which was built in 1936 above Wynyard station.

The project was completed in two stages, phase one consisted of a strip out and make good of the tenancy previously occupied by the government sector. Where stage two involved of the construction of an open plan environment, circa 900sqm with the capacity of up to 42 staff members.

Intermain successfully worked towards the clients brief which was to provide a flexible workplace for start-up businesses. There was need to create common areas for multiple groups to work simultaneously alongside each other, however limiting disruption, as well providing the essential needs for shared technology and security with the use of lockers. The space also incorporated multiple boardrooms, a conference room, 6 “focus rooms” and 6 multipurpose collaboration rooms. A key design element was a multipurpose space for town hall presentations, events and a flexible lounge, as well as a kitchen/ breakout areas.

No detail was spared in the design with acoustic panelling and writting walls, allowing for a truly collaborative environment, whilst also incorporating original heritage items such as Timber floors, cornices and fireplaces.

Intermain are happy to have handed over the completed two staged project within the tight time frame of 6 weeks, within budget and no reported accidents.
