Collins has completed the phase one works at Dashwood for Landsec. The fit-out specialist is delivering a programme of projects across 12 floors, totalling approximately 100,000 sq ft.

Collins has been in the building since June 2020, delivering a £7.5m Cat A refurbishment across 6 floors and the basement area to create a modern space for future tenant Blank Canvas.

Collins was then appointed to deliver the £6m Myo fit-out across a further 4 floors of the building, totalling approximately 35,000 sq ft.

The team is also delivering Landsec’s Customised workspace on the 2nd floor, a turnkey and customisable offer that can be delivered to any of the Cat A floors upon request. Collins has now handed over 3 completed floors, including two Blank Canvas floors and the completed customised floor.

Ryan Cleanthi, Project Director at Collins, commented: “We committed a great deal of time to review the spaces of Dashwood and how they would be used by the different audiences. By having a real understanding of the building and a longstanding and close working relationship with Landsec it was easier to plan for the impact of Covid-19.

Collins has a one-team approach to refurb and fit-out so we can work dynamically and accommodate change quickly when we need to. Dashwood is a great example of what can be achieved through strong relationships and the ability to be flexible during challenging times.”

Charlie Railton, Portfolio Projects Director at Landsec, added: “The Collins team put together fantastic bids for the projects at Dashwood and it is great to be working with a mix of familiar and new faces. This project is a first for Landsec in bringing its 3 office products (Blank Canvas, Customised and Myo) to market within the same building at the same time. That in itself generates many challenges before taking into account working in an occupied tower building and the restrictions of COVID-19. Collaboration between client, professional team and the construction team is key and once again Collins is stepping up to the plate with energy to drive the project and an open-minded approach.”
