With its prominent city location, Mostly Media is a business that thrives in helping start-ups and established brands grow by maximising return on advertising investment.
They were keen to transform the 3,300 sqft ground and first floor area at 11 Kelso Place into a space that would enhance the buildings' historic stone appearance and create an attractive place to work for new staff who had only ever worked from home over the past 18 months. Not only that, but they also required the third floor refurbished in view of future subletting.
At the heart of the decision for the CAT B refurbishment was the team, rewarding the staff with a well-deserved place to work. A space they can come together, collaborate and produce creative ideas for the company.
Throughout the design and fit out process, the McFeggan Brown team engaged and worked in full collaboration with Mostly Media building confidence and trust.
After 12 weeks on site, the building interior was transformed from an empty shell into a fun, creative, and open-plan office - not only does it look inspiring but serves a valuable purpose. A space that tailors to a variety of working styles and where staff can escape from their desks to a cosy breakout area, relax and have a game of table football!
Key Design Features:
• Soft furnishings dotted throughout the space, merging office and comfort together.
• Exposed ceiling and services for an industrial feel making the most of the historic building
• Graphics that bring out the local historical era from previous centuries as well clients artwork displayed around the ‘area’
• Meeting rooms with full height glazing with the continued colour and decor scheme subtly throughout.

McFeggan Brown was contracted to complete the 4th floor CAT B refurbishment. This project included the construction of partitions, installation of new kitchen & breakout space, flooring and furniture throughout, and local electrical and data supplies. After 12 weeks on-site, the project was delivered to a high standard to reflect the modern and changing workplace.
This space now has a fantastic kitchen and breakout area offering staff a place to relax, eat, and socialise, including fully integrated appliances, boiling tap and even a glass fronted fridge providing refreshments to staff. A rooftop area opens out with bar-style seating & tables partnered with panoramic views over the city centre. In the main open-plan workspace, movement and flexibility has been encouraged through the use of multiple places to work and collaborate away from the desk, including poseur tables, booths and even tilting stools. As well as harnessing the office environment Domin have also utilised the space to include lab areas for their technical electronics works.
Discussion Box is a Bristol based technology company who have recently secured an empty space in the heart of Bristol at 33 Colston Avenue and enlisted McFeggan Brown to create a smart ‘New York City’ style workspace.
The existing base build was simple but still had features that we put to use in the design. The light fittings were a perfect example of this, setting off the space with a linear feel. We worked with Discussion Box to engage with staff and understand what their people wanted out of their new space. Working with a 2,220 sq ft suite, McFeggan Brown completed the CAT B refurbishment of the ground floor and mezzanine suite. The completed workspace is fully agile, with the added benefit of open-plan offices and breakout spaces – meaning collaboration is available when it’s needed. This suite also features multi-purpose individual offices for private working, larger meetings, and one-to-ones.
The natural light flows freely throughout, helping to create a healthy environment.
COWI, a long standing client, specialises in applying world-class knowledge and experience globally based on engineering, economics and environmental science. They contacted McFeggan Brown to refurbish and refresh their existing office building in York. It was clear that health and wellbeing was at the forefront of their vision, so a full design and a CAT B fit out was achieved to accommodate this.
The space adapts to a hybrid working practice, with collaboration areas within the open plan environment, complete with the best technology to enable easy connectivity to staff working from home. Along with working stations being bright and spacious, height adjustable desks were installed to increase flexibility and allow the staff to work as they choose. Greenery and a range of textures bring a fresh and organic feeling to the space.
iPipeline, Cheltenham-based software company providing digital solutions to the financial services sector, were in the need of a newer and larger office space to suit the company's growth. Their new home on the Quadrangle’s second floor spans 8,805 square feet and will provide a modern workspace for more than 80 members of staff with plenty of room for growth.
McFeggan Brown designed the space to include many features that compliment the iPipeline brand and a breakout area designed with views looking over Imperial Gardens. Large social spaces that encourage the staff to work from the office and quiet booths for zoom calls. With the building installed with air conditioned and full height, double glazed windows, we carried out the full package from electrics to partitions and carpet to furniture
SysGroup specialises in managed IT services, cloud hosting, security solutions, connectivity and strategic technical consultancy with offices in Liverpool, London, Bristol, Telford and Newport.
Consistency was high on the agenda for SysGroup, so their Newport office space was in the need of a refresh in order to match the Liverpool office. McFeggan Brown lead them through a design journey, working with their thoughts and ideas to produce a workspace tailored to their needs.
We stripped out partitions, flooring and furniture on 2 floors and installed all new fixtures and fittings including a new glass sided boardroom and meeting spaces. The workspace is flexible, has the potential for increased staff, and matches many features of their Liverpool office. The open plan space includes booths for semi-private meetings, small individual offices for confidential meetings, open plan seating and a new kitchen with a spacious breakout area.
Like us all, ARAG were adjusting to the new style of working and came to McFeggan Brown to help provide them with a space for their staff who primarily work from home but needed to come back to the office to collaborate with their colleagues.
With our knowledge and design expertise we created a collaboration hub within their building, with space for meetings, breakout and project working. Incorporating new feature carpet, furniture and acoustic panels. What we have created is a space which attracts staff and ensures they valued and appreciated.
Situated on the north bank of the Floating Harbour upstream of Castle Park, overlooking the English cite of Bristol is the Cheese Lane Shot Tower. The grade II list tower now forms part of an office development, Vertigo. WD Trust approached McFeggan Brown with the need for a fit out of two tired office floors into CAT B space. Transforming the area required installation of new power & data supplies, decorations, carpet and finally the finishing touch, furniture! Doesn't it look spectacular!
The finished result achieved a happy client! - "I just wanted to say that I LOVE the new office!!! It really is so lovely, the design is just what we wanted and the décor absolutely perfect. Really so pleased and have had so many comments from staff when I’ve showed them the videos. Thank you so much you’ve really been great."
Having worked for Coveya in 2016, they came back to us with a need for refurbishing their existing 1st floor kitchen and toilets facilities. Being a trust company, McFeggan Brown transformed the old, tired space into a fresh, attractive and inviting area which staff can enjoy and socialise within, away from the working office.
With a reduction in personnel, the need for a smaller base was important to Securitas. McFeggan Brown transformed a small dilapidated suit within Almondsbury Business Park, into a fully functional space with new individual offices, conference room and a new kitchen. This project was delivered in just 3 weeks to a happy customer!
