CO2Sense appoints Ben Johnson for office move
C02Sense recently appointed Ben Johnson to manage their office move. Ben Johnson supported CO2Sense through the process by helping them evaluate potential buildings both in terms of space and potential fit-out costs.
Now independent from Yorkshire Forward, CO2Sense wanted a space that would express their innovative culture yet remain sensitive to their public sector roots. Lead time was critical as C02Sense had 12 weeks to find and move from their existing premises which included property search, legal negotiations, Christmas shutdown and fit-out. This was further complicated as the chosen building, Marshall Mills, still had CAT A works to be completed.
Ben Johnson worked with C02Sense and the landlord to collapse the timeline by operating an open book approach, which was monitored by independent surveyors Jones Hargreaves. The landlord’s refurbishment works included new toilets and showers, lighting, flooring, fire alarm system, decoration and security shutters. The client’s fit-out works incorporated new partitioning, joinery, kitchen, feature carpets, lighting and decoration, branding and furniture supply.
In the spirit of recycling, Ben Johnson helped C02Sense refresh their existing workstations by reupholstering the task and meeting seating and providing new screens . This enabled the budget to be focused on the reception and informal meeting and breakout areas CO2Sense felt were lacking in their existing working environment.
Signature furniture pieces included upholstering a seat for a recycled bath in reception and creating a table out of recycled board to go around a challenging pillar in a meeting room.
The overall project was delivered in 12 weeks within budget.
