Saracen Completes Landmark Yorkshire Fit Out
L
eading workplace consultant,
Saracen Interiors has completed
the fit out and refurbishment of
fertilizer development company, Sirius
Minerals
Plc’s
new
company
headquarters at Prospect House - the
iconic, former Scarborough Building
Society building which stands at the
town’s southern gateway.
The project, which began in March this
year, comprised of a complete redesign
to allow for Sirius’s plans for major
expansion. The 55,000 sq ft fit out
covered three floors and included the
complete strip out of old mechanical,
electrical and HVAC systems and the
installation of new facilities throughout.
The new HVAC design and fit out will
bolster Sirius’s green credentials while
saving the company an estimated 40 –
50 per cent on energy bills overall.
Work also included the installation of
suspended ceilings, flooring, furniture, a
kitchen and breakout areas, collaborative
working spaces, partitioning to create
meeting rooms and a new reception
layout, including a bespoke reception
desk and a living wall.

delighted to prove that we can confidently
carry work of this scale and of such a high

contract, which was awarded in light of
our dedication and commitment to the
project and the suitability of our designs,
and we hope that the final results will
achieve a positive response from those
who are familiar with the original
interiors, as well as the building’s endusers.”
