Our budget size meant that weneeded to provide a cost effective solution which would still give us thewow factor we wanted from furniture and enough storage to provide forall our staff, Heatons enabled us to provide both within our budget.Nicola provided guidance and product suggestions to enable us to buildin special features which lifted the communal areas. When it came to theproject rollout the installation team were very well organised, efficient,attentive, cheerful and flexible. I would not hesitate to recommendHeatons in the future" Project Value £250,000
Hugh Baird H.E. Heatons were asked to provide an interior design scheme for a newlySuite Case Study refurbished H.E Suite within the Ballioll Centre. What Heatons say... Heatons were proud to be asked once again to come up with a scheme for Hugh Bairds newly refurbished H E Suite. The brief was to put forward an interior design scheme that was modern and contemporary with funky seating and with a wow factor. Once we had provided detailed plans, we then put forward a mood board with proposed colour schemes and product selection to coincide with the brief. We were over the moon to be awarded with the order. What Hugh Baird say... It was very important for the College to provide our Higher Education students with a facility that was not only high quality but distinctive from the rest of the College and to give our HE students their own area with its own identity. Heatons were able to work with the College on this project because they have worked alongside the College on other projects and understand our commitment to constant improvements, usually with very tight timescales. The HE suite has been a massive hit with our HE students and has proved to be very popular area for staff to engage with them on a less formal basis. An important additional benefit from this area is that it has created an interest from other students and is therefore becoming part of their aspiration for progression to HE courses within the College.

Scientiam Heatons worked with Scientiam on their new training facility at Liverpool One. This was to be their flagship facility. The scheme was toCase Study be contemporary and have a wow factor. What Heatons say... Heatons were approached by Scientiam as we had successfully worked with them before on a previous project. This time they were opening a new flagship training facility in the heart of Liverpool One. Scientiam’s brief was to create an office with wow factor and one that was consistent with both Scientiam and Liverpool One’s brand values. We visited the site to survey and measure up so as we could provide scaled drawings to show how their facility could work for them and how to maximise the available space. We were responsible for the design and planning of the open plan space which was to be partitioned off using a contemporary frameless glass partitioning system so as to create an airy and light environment. We then provided interior design mood boards to help the client see our vision of how the office and training space would look. “We were delighted to work with the Scientiam on this project from start to finish, advising them on interior design, space planning and furniture solutions.” What Scientiam say... We approached Heatons with our Academy One project because we have worked with them previously and have found them to be helpful, reliable and professional at all times. Nicky worked closely with us and our project management team throughout and her advice on colour schemes, materials and layouts was invaluable. Nicky worked tirelessly to create the look we were looking for and the completed project looks amazing. Holly Tonge - Operations Manager Project Value £100,000

Venmore Venmores relocated into new premises. Heatons were responsible for supplying contemporary furniture that represented their brand values.Case Study What Heatons say... Heatons were pleased to be approached by Venmores having successfully worked with them previously on other projects. Venmores were relocating into new premises in Liverpool city centre. We were asked to come up with a design scheme that was functional for both staff and visitors. Also on the wish list was that they wanted the open plan space to have a modern and contemporary feel coupled with a reception and waiting area that offered style and class for their visiting clients. Heatons were responsible for all of the furniture including desking and storage, task and visitor seating, reception counter and waiting chairs plus the boardroom. We also helped with the interior design by putting forward carpet selections and fabric choices. What Venmore say... Venmores is Liverpool’s oldest estate agency business, being in existence for over 160 years, unfortunately the office furnishings were looking as if they had been around for most of that period. The business is based upon a really strong City Centre Property Management and Property Auction business originally based in Stanley Street. We took the decision that we required a more visible and accessible building and wanted to provide a better environment for our customers and staff, we took the brave decision to move and took a lease on a building in the best city centre location for a property business. We signed a lease on an old bank that needed completely refurbishing on a very tight time frame with the project plan for the build running parallel with the plan for the furniture. Creating the right environment was something we had strong views upon, we needed to work with a supplier who was happy to invest time in understanding our business and turning our conceptual ideas into a practical great looking environment. Heaton’s provided a number of options that reflected our requirements and were attentive to detail and changes as our building plans evolved. The project was on time and on budget and the office has been a great success. We would recommend working with Heatons. Rob Farnham - Partner Project Value £24,000
