Project: Cat B Fit-Out to provide unique serviced Office space

Contract: JCT Design & Build


Design and build Cat B fit-out project to provide a unique serviced office for growing Manchester-based, hot-desking specialist, iHub.


Based on the 4th floor of 2 Colmore Gate, in Birmingham’s business district, the hub offers hot-desking (278 workstations), private offices, meeting rooms and communal areas, and is targeted at small business owners and start-ups. Membership to the 4th floor provides individuals with 24/7 access to fully serviced, state-of-the-art office facilities in an open plan environment.

iHub are at the forefront of next-generation workspaces and we designed the solution to their brief by creating a thriving working environment which allows businesses to interact with each other.

The client wanted the space to feel uplifting, energizing and bright, which we achieved even with no natural light in the breakout, cafe and reception areas. Biophilia in the workplace was designed-in to increase productivity and reduce stress.
