Office refurbishment project for Leeds charity
Leeds based Interior Fit Out Company Avanta UK Ltd successfully tendered for the office fit out works for the award winning charity Specialist Autism Services (SAS).
About Specialist Autism Services (SAS)
Specialist Autism Services’ mission is to support adults with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome by the provision of health, education, training, sports, creative art and counselling activities, which promote their social inclusion, training opportunities and ultimately employability.
Their highly trained staff team provide essential information, training and support to adults on the spectrum, their parents/carers, health professionals and also contribute to research in this specialist field.
The Leeds office on Dewsbury Road was no longer fit for purpose for a growing charity that supports over 200 adults from its bases across Yorkshire, supporting them to develop social skills, confidence and ultimately, employability.
Autism is thought to affect about one per cent of the population and SAS needed to operate out of a workspace that could provide more flexibility in the support of its service users (members).
The new office facility (located just off Wakefield Rd, LS10) offered a great open space that required subdividing using glazed office partitioning to provide: -
Dedicated counselling & meeting rooms
Kitchen dining room
Boardroom & Training Facilities
Certain suites / rooms are fitted with push button access locks for added security.
Mark Davison of Avanta UK Ltd commented "It has been a pleasure working with SAS. We knew we had to provide an attractive and functional office space solution within a specific budget and we are pleased with the result."
Linda Langstaff of SAS commented "We are very happy with the work that was undertaken at our new premises by Avanta. We now have a purpose built space that better suits the needs of the individuals that we work for and with. All of our staff and members extend their gratitude for a job well done.”
