Saffron Building Society – Saffron House

Client Background

Saffron Building Society has a network of 12 branches serving the communities of Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and London as well as many agencies in the region. They offer a range of savings, mortgage and investment products including tax free savings, notice accounts, immediate access and children’s savings.

Points of note

This insitu-refurbishment was originally a 10-week programme but due to the success of the Delivery Team the project was completed in 7 weeks. The project was built over three phases while the Client was in occupation throughout.

The full refurbishment of Saffron House in in the market square in Saffron Waldon has rejuvenated the office and dramatically extended the working life of the building. The working conditions for Saffron staff have been transformed from the old, dark and cramped workspace to new, light and airy space.

The scope of works included open plan space, offices, meeting rooms and tea-point.
