‘‘Paragon Interiors used their previously successful Interior Design skills to enhance this layout greatly by the use of innovative colours, materials and fittings to produce a colourful, fresh, bright and inviting solution to the needs of the occupying Department. By building on the ‘open’ layout and using as much glass as possible to brighten a previously dark and dated feel of the buildings, Paragon have been able produce a space that staff, students and visitors can be proud of and happy to work in. Paragon’s attention to detail has resulted in a high standard of finish whilst maintaining an acceptable budget and also meeting the expectations of the University’s staff and students.

Whilst some late client design changes made the completion date challenging, Paragon rose to this challenge and finished the project not only in a timely manner but within the overall budget.”
