Astellas office ... gets the Summertown Interiors touch.

Summertown delivers office ahead of schedule

DUBAI, May 6, 2015

UAE-based Summertown Interiors, a leading fit-out contractor specialising in green interiors, has completed the office of Japanese pharmaceutical firm Astellas ahead of schedule.

The Dh2.9-million ($789,000) fit-out of the new office, delivered in just 12 weeks, is the pharma company’s new regional headquarters for the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) and Sub-Saharan Africa region.

Located in Platinum Tower in the sought-after Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) area of Dubai, the 500-sq-m office enjoys an open, transparent feel thanks to seamless glass partitions and inspired layout.

The space includes a reception area, large-scale conference room, an integrated breakout area that also includes the office pantry to promote collaboration in an informal environment, plus IT function areas to host server and printing facilities.

Summertown Interiors was selected to fit-out the office based on its consistent attention to detail and ability to deliver quality on time, a statement said.

Adopting a partnership approach with specialist professionals including MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) consultant Chapman BDSP resulted in local authority approval being completed in record time and on first inspection.

Designed by Perkins + Will (P+W), the project was managed by CBRE. Steven Charlton, principal managing director of P+W said:  “The delivery of the fit-out for this project was fantastic – we are delighted to work with Summertown Interiors.”

Marcos Bish, managing director, Summertown Interiors, said: “Being able to deliver a project ahead of schedule without compromising on attention to detail is a core competency for Summertown Interiors.”

“Not only was the final result one of top quality, but the minimal snags and smooth processing of approvals meant that the office was ready for handover ahead of schedule.  This has two-fold benefits for our client:  an office that meets their standards and requirements, and the ability to operate from it earlier than expected,” he added.

Summertown’s green waste management standards applied onsite meant that the project’s environmental impact was minimised, with construction waste being recycled where possible and materials reused onsite. Rigorous international health and safety procedures were applied at all stages of the project, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
