Our site in Leicestershire is quite complex and we didn’t have a clear understanding of how to best utilise the buildings and space we had available for our business. We were introduced to Butler & Willow when we visited a mutual contact’s offices who had recently had their offices refurbished by Butler & Willow and we really haven’t looked back. The team’s enthusiasm for the project, understanding of our needs and subsequent ideas on how to get the best from our space was just what we needed and we now have a fantastic work environment.

We developed a great relationship with Butler & Willow who were able to provide us with a solution which maximised the space we had and allowed us to create both office and industrial spaces in one location.

Butler & Willow provided a thoroughly professional service which delivered our mezzanine on time and within budget. In all phases of the project, they exceeded our expectation.

We are delighted with modern office space Butler & Willow have created for us. The team was very creative in utilising the space that was available. The storage wall is particularly impressive and the open plan office with glass partitions allows the natural light from the individual offices to brighten up the main office area.

The design created by Butler & Willow provided us with a practical, cost effective solution which not only reduced overall costs but provided us with a much better scheme all round.

Having worked with Butler & Willow on a number of projects at Center Parcs Head Office I have found them to be an extremely professional and friendly company to work with. I look forward to our next project planned for 2017.
