Santander

Our working relationship with Santander (formerly Abbey National) commenced in 1975.

Initial works consisted of maintenance and branch refurbishments; these included the manufacture of bespoke timber counters and security screens, this was closely followed by a roll out programme installing new self-service equipment throughout the nation.

We were part of the major refurbishment programme required when Abbey National became a PLC and its corporate ID changed. We’ve also been involved in prestigious projects such as the first Santander branch fit out in The Strand London, and the rebranding and conversion involved following the acquisitions of Bradford & Bingley and Alliance & Leicester.

Project: Sittingbourne Branch

Contract period – 11 Weeks

Great care was taken to deliver this branch refurbishment at Sittingbourne as it was a test site for a planned rollout project by Santander across the whole country. The programme of works consisted of the removal of walls throughout the 1st floor to achieve an open plan environment, upgrading and strengthening of the existing roof structure, and installation of a wheelchair lift to the split-level ground floor. The mechanical and electrical components throughout the building were also replaced within the project and new finishes were installed resulting in a totally new concept ‘look and feel’ for potential future branch refurbishment.

Project: Flagship Branch Kensington London

Contract period – 26 weeks

This challenging refurbishment incorporated heavy structural alterations to the basement and ground floor while the upper residential floors remained occupied. Disruption was minimal during the works. We provided new mechanical and electrical services, fitted a new curved steel staircase, ceilings, radial rising screen counters, glazed private offices, and staff facilities with decorative soft furnishings. Maintaining our dedication to quality and detail throughout a lengthy contract period is part of why we continue to be a specialist fit out supplier of choice to Santander.
