Hartlepool site opens after refurbPosted by Mark

A landmark building in the north east of England has had its reopening after a large refurbishment.
Titan House in Hartlepool used to be known locally as ‘The Pink Pill’, with the alliterative name given thanks to the original building’s distinctive colour. After the major fit out and refurbishment however, it has a whole new and fresh look.
The building has become a major mixed use development in the town, offering 49 residential flats thought to be placed in the affordable housing category. Each one has been completely renovated, offering one and two-bed homes.
On the ground floor, all retail units have been combined into one office flooring space. These will act as the base for customers accessing services provided by the Thirteen Group, which includes services from Tees Valley Housing and Housing Hartlepool.
The building was official reopened by the Labour MP for Hartlepool, Iain Wright. He said:
“Titan House has been given a new lease of life and now provides services to tenants, high quality office space and improved accommodation.”
The operations director for the Thirteen Group, Dave Pickard, said that the complete overhaul of the site was far more than just altering the building’s colour.
He explained that the white stone rendering, timber cladding, and aluminium window framing used had provided the town with a big step forward. This is something local architect Dave Butler, who took charge of redesign, agreed with, saying it will hopefully lead to a wider boost to the area.

Having an office with a wide-open space with all departments together can sometimes cause a lot of noise with different projects happening simultaneously. Having partitioning systems installed in an office doesn’t mean just having separate spaces in the office for different departments, partitioning can also create a professional meeting room. There are many different designs of office partitioning which our experienced team can both design and install, frameless glass partitioning, demountable partitions which has sound attenuation,
Having only one meeting room can often cause difficulties and frustrations when two meetings are scheduled in at the same time and this is where operable walls can really come in handy and prove to be extremely efficient. When in use, they create a structural wall splitting up a room and when they are no longer required they can be folded or stacked against the wall to give back the original open space.
Many offices don’t get refurbished for many years after they’re first completed, so 2017 may be the year that your office deserves a well-earned refurb, even if it is just a lick of paint! There’s nothing better than kick-starting the new year with a brand new looking office ready to get back into the swing of things after the festivities. Companies often have a business plan for the year ahead and if you’re planning on growing yours,
Having an area in the workplace to go during breaks and lunch hour has many benefits for both employees and employers. It is important to have some time during the working day to switch off from work and reboot, ‘A study of office workers and managers by Staples discovered that even though 66 percent of employees spend more than eight hours a day at work, more than a quarter of them don’t take a break other than lunch.
For many office workers, sitting at a desk all day typing away on a keyboard and looking into a computer screen seems to take up the majority of their working hours! For this reason, among others, it is extremely important to provide a working environment that keeps employees feeling happy and uplifted – helping to improve productivity and boost company morale.
