About the project

SPACE enjoyed working with Specialist Sports, a leading performance sports distribution and brand marketing agency. They needed more space for their growing capacity and after having secured a 25,779 sq ft warehouse in Southampton, SPACE was tasked with implementing the CAT B fit out to adapt the shell build to suit the new operations.

The brief was to transform this industrial space into a building which offers an inspiring work environment for employees where their shared passion for sport and performance products is clearly visible.

On the ground floor, SPACE created office space; a dazzling showroom to display their products; several meeting rooms; staff breakout and all essential recreational space where the team can exercise and trial new products. The company believes that having room to exercise does not just improve your physical fitness it can benefit your mental health too.

The nine-week makeover included installation of a mezzanine; new LED lighting for the warehouse area and specialised racking to hero their products within the showroom. SPACE also curated a selection of furniture that would optimise how people used the different areas such as ‘head down’ working, collaborative break out areas and warehouse requirement.
