Find out more about McFeggan Brown and how we started!
McFeggan Brown were selected by CSA Catapult to design and deliver their new Future Telecoms Hub, based at the Innovation Hub on the Bristol and Bath Science Park.
Starting off as two very bland offices, the space was transformed over the course of the project into a fun and creative place to work.
We removed the existing flooring and suspended ceilings, installed a glass partition between the rooms, fitted new flooring, installed a compressed air system, redecorated throughout, fitted motorised blinds, and installed furniture.
In addition, a strong emphasis on design meant several unique elements featured in the build. This included:
- A bespoke seating bench transitioning to coffee bar.
- A bespoke acoustic baffle ceiling design for each room.
- Switchable film to the glass partition between the rooms.
- Writable paint to selected walls.
This made the end result even more impressive. We hope CSA Catapult enjoy their new space!
PhenUtest Diagnostics – a remarkable company with innovative technology, is designing a new diagnostic system that could reduce the waiting time for an appropriate antibiotic prescription for urinary tract infections from days to minutes.
PhenUtest collaborated with McFeggan Brown and Kastner Lab with a new office and laboratory transformation on the 2nd floor of their building in Bath which started as an existing space with just one meeting room, kitchen area, and toilets.
The decision was made to open up the main floor area and entrance partition to create a more spacious and collaborative working environment. Timber constructed laboratories enabled the incorporation of a uniquely designed service deck which has been a key aspect of the design stage. Installation of all new air conditioning, plumbing and lighting with vinyl and carpet flooring and laboratory benching to fully complete the labs.
The reconfiguration of the toilets, including the addition of a new shower room, shows attention to detail and consideration for the comfort and convenience of the employees. Such facilities can contribute to a better work-life balance and promote the overall job satisfaction of the staff.
During the pandemic, McFeggan Brown bucked a trend and continued to expand, outgrowing our previous premises in Backwell. This made the hard decision to move away, into a more prominent location in Aztec West in 2022. The new building is a huge showcase for us as the space has been designed to support staff in all aspects of their work, incorporating all 10 aspects of the WELL standard on our journey to achieve WELL Building certification.
With the installation and fit out of a new mezzanine floor, we now have workstation areas with prominent positions next to the natural light. Collaboration spaces are set where teams can interact with each other. Huge tables are used to layout samples and bring together schemes, while all of the team can walk by, watch and understand how each element of the design and build process is created.
With quiet areas for concentration working alongside large collaboration spaces, the relationship of sound travel and acoustic comfort has been considered. Spaces have been broken up using a combination of furniture solutions with integrated planting.
Our heat recovery air conditioning system is zoned over each desk area, giving each individual work group the ability to control the temperature and provision of fresh air over each section of desks. This was proposed as it is more cost effective and saves electricity as the heat is produced from the return air and ensures we are not pumping heat both into and out of the building.
The kitchen area is situated downstairs, encouraging people to get up and away from their desks. With the central dining table, the kitchen becomes a hub of activity, encouraging people to come together from all departments. Whilst there are still meeting rooms, hot office areas and booths to sit in, many of the most beneficial meetings happen in the kitchen while coffee is being made and toast is consumed.
Staff are actively encouraged to take walks or run around the lake during breaks, with the introduction of showers being a must when building the office.
Large deliveries can now be bought in house easily, and stored in the large warehouse facilities, making huge improvements to quality control, waste management and recycling during the running of projects.
“It's been an amazing, brilliant improvement from where we were, with outstanding office space and facilities. One of the major benefits is the location in Aztec West Business Park, with its landscaped environment I’m very proud of the interior design which has a definite wow factor and is very enjoyable to work in, taking an industrial unit and transforming it to a cutting edge commercial workspace. The design is complemented by the services and mechanical installation, with excellent warehouse access, superfast fibre, air conditioning and heat recovery ventilation" - Mark Brady, Managing Director

The reception within their impressive Staverton Court building in Cheltenham required modernising and bringing up-to-date and in line with their other office locations.
The reception desk was custom-designed to integrate seamlessly with the existing structural elements and services. By involving those who would work at the desk in the design process, the functionality, practicality and lines of visibility from key areas like the meeting rooms were ensured.
New feature carpet was installed, whilst retaining some of the original flag-stoned flooring to add visual interest for a harmonious balance between traditional and modern.
A 3-dimensional corporate sign was designed to fit above the fireplace, with coordinating fabrics used in the soft seating area in the brand's color scheme.
Baltimore Consulting, a Bristol-based firm established in 2013, is known for making a positive impact on people's lives in the community through recruitment.
Having previously worked with McFeggan Brown for a fit out in their Prince Street Office, Baltimore needed a new space on the 17th floor of Castlemead to accommodate their expanding business. This location held significance for the company as it was where many team members initially began their work.
The design of the space focused on creating an impressive reception area and training facility, showcasing the company's numerous awards and highlighting their success. A tiered seating area with state-of-the-art audiovisual facilities was incorporated to enable staff members to participate in large company meetings from any location. The stage area was strategically positioned to face the seating area for presentations.
Adjacent to the seating area, a breakout facility was included to encourage team collaboration and provide areas for individuals to work quietly. This facility featured booths and a comfortable sofa area. The fully equipped kitchen was designed to facilitate communal meals and beverage preparation. It included features such as boiling water taps, three microwaves, integrated fridges and freezers, as well as a showcase champagne fridge for special celebrations.
Overall, the fit-out of Baltimore Consulting's space on the 17th floor of Castlemead aimed to create a functional and impressive environment that supports their business expansion and fosters collaboration and engagement among their employees.
An existing client of McFeggan Brown for several years, ARAG Plc are an innovative and highly successful legal insurance organisation working in partnership with brokers, insurers and solicitors.
After working on their Bristol office, they approached us to carry out the fit-out of their new suite in the centre of Dublin. With more and more of their staff working remotely, the need for large office space was no longer required. A new location was found only doors away on the 7th floor terrace with views overlooking the stunning landscape of Dublin and trams and public transport passing the doorstep, it was the ideal fit!
Works commenced in late November 2022 and were completed in January 2023. Starting from the initial design stage, we ensured the space matched their Bristol space, in particular, the colour scheme with not a dull corner! We carried out the full package from strip out to new partitions and electrical installations, kitchen, flooring, and furniture.

The client's objective was to create a revitalized and contemporary space that reflected their brand identity and colours. Our design solution capitalized on the high ceilings and distinctive balcony feature, incorporating elegant wood panelling and luxurious blue velvet seating to establish a sense of sophistication.
The project was executed within a three-week timeframe, ensuring minimal disruption to the daily operations of the company.
"Working with McFeggan Brown was seamless from inception through to completion transforming our reception into a welcoming environment creating a great first impression."
With over 200 clientele, Aspira is a financial planning firm specialising in workplace pensions and wealth management for executives and private clients. Their service results in a lifetime financial plan including protection, retirement planning and investment solutions.
Aspira contacted McFeggan Brown with the need for our office design and fit-out expertise within the central hub of Bristol. After losing out on one building, they opted for a 5380 sqft space at 3 Temple Quay. The building is a landmark office building in Bristol's popular Temple Wharf office district. The suite benefits from riverfront views and excellent proximity to Bristol Temple Meads.
Seven floors up, the space was designed to maximise natural lighting in the main open-plan areas. Any darker areas of the building were to be reserved for the tea point and meeting spaces, areas that are only used for a short period of time.
The office is now suited to Aspira's new working styles, with many areas to collaborate and socialise with colleagues, as well as quiet zones to take calls and work independently.
McFeggan Brown were approached by an engineering client looking at buying an office building that required updating and renewal. An internal strip out of the building was undertaken in order to remove all the existing floor finishes, kitchens, bathrooms and main wet heating systems. In addition, AC units were serviced or stripped out, walls removed, and all lighting and electrical services stripped back. Over the course of 10 weeks, new AC comfort heating and cooling systems were installed along with toilets, finishes, walls and furniture.
Over 10 weeks, we transformed the building interior to create a modern working environment with zones for staff to collaborate and areas of conventional desking. In addition, McFeggan worked closely with the client to ensure that stringent security measures were met and an office to host some of the industry leading technology and engineering companies was created!
Main features and works included:
• Large breakout zone on Ground Floor
• Decorations and new flooring throughout
• Booth seating and a quiet zone to a large ground floor
