Points of note

On the back of a long-term relationship between Maris and the Jebsen family (major Shareholders), we were able to play an important part in the relocation of Gearbulk’s UK offices.

Gearbulk selected the building at The Heights, Weybridge as it provided the capacity for ongoing expansion of this very successful company. This was a large, fast track office design and fit-out project on a limited budget.

“I was very impressed with Maris’ Design Team: they grasped the concepts very quickly and obviously knew exactly what they were talking about, both in terms of legal requirements and facilities. They had an amazing ability to ‘think space’ and could draw 3-dimensional drawings in a matter of seconds!”
