Fraser Projects’ team of Leeds-based interior fit out specialists has supported the continued expansion of award-winning regional business Northern Accountants.
The financial practice has enjoyed three successful years in its current office environment in Morley, West Yorkshire. But, having gone from strength to strength and recruited along the way, Northern Accountants needed to optimise its workspace for the benefit of staff and customers alike.
Director and founder Phil Ellerby explains: “As we attract more clients throughout the North – in search of no-nonsense, proactive, value-adding accountancy services – we need to recruit more talented people who can uphold the ethos for which we’ve become renowned. But a growing team simply wouldn’t have fitted into the space we had.
“We therefore brought Fraser Projects in, at the space planning and design phase, to assess how we could make optimum use of our Howley Park base.
“Impressed with their ideas, we appointed this local business to undertake our Leeds office refurbishment assignment. Very quickly, they swung into action, overhauling our ground floor by giving us a welcoming new reception, meeting room, more formal boardroom and archive room. Our office has moved to the first floor, where we now have an open plan scheme with 14 modern workstations, rather than the six desks we previously had downstairs. There is a well-equipped kitchenette up there too.
“Best of all, Fraser Projects took care of everything, from the new partitions, joinery and plastering to the plumbing and decorating. This seamless approach was exactly what we needed as a busy organisation.”
So what advice would Phil give to other business owners unsure of their office space utilisation?
“Following a period of growth or change, it is understandable that the first thought is to move into larger premises. And often, on the back of continued success, many brands think they must be situated in the city centre.
‘However, a very cost-effective investment in our current address means we have avoided the hassle and expense of an office relocation, and, thanks to Fraser Projects’ forward-thinking grasp of our vision, we can stay here for years to come.
“We now have a vibrant, professional and friendly workspace, akin to something you’d see in central Leeds. It sets the right impression the minute a customer walks through the door, and it provides employees with an open, energising and morale-boosting place to work.”
