WorkBox were selected to partner Balfour Beatty, one of the world’s largest infrastructure groups, on a major office move to a new flagship facility. The fit out and move to Atlantic Park in Liverpool for Balfour Beatty Rail took six weeks from start to finish. The site is home to more than 140 staff and WorkBox supplied new furniture, air conditioning, offices, meeting rooms, two new bistros, reception area and association support rooms.
Senior engineering manager, Warren Gower, said: “I would like to thank WorkBox for their services over the last year in assisting Balfour Beatty Electrification to move from Stephenson House to Alaska House Liverpool. The move was seamless and the refurbishment carried out to programme, budget and high quality.”
