Securing the future by refurbishing the past
When County Locksmiths (Part of the CSS Total Security Group) took over the old Winchester Based “Bridges Security” business in Andover Road, Winchester, they realised some extensive refurbishment works would be needed.
Local Contractors “Hampshire Mezzanine Floors” were awarded the project via a competitive tendering process, offering a cost effective fit out package with an innovative retail design.
Roberto Fiorentino, Managing Director of CSS said: “CSS pride ourselves on our professionalism and attention to detail for our clients and HMF clearly operate the same ethos within their business”
The simple Brief of making a 100 year old building into a modern effective business premises was implemented within a fast track three week building programme to minimise disruption to CSS as a trading business. Indeed, CSS remained in the building and continued trading throughout the refurbishment works. Mr Fiorentino added: “HMF worked well with our team to ensure that that whilst major works were carried out that our staff were able to continue trading”
New suspended ceilings with recessed lighting, shop-fittings, toilets, flooring, electrical fit-out and partitioning were created to provide enhanced customer display areas and to improve stock storage capacity and staff working environments.
The finished result has transformed this well-known Locksmiths shop into a modern retail environment reflecting the corporate image to match the other CSS Branches based in Southampton and Fareham.
