Saracen Interiors has completed a fast-track, refurbishment contract for hairdressing chain, Forresters at its salon in Caversham.

The workplace consultant was awarded this second project, following on from the successful handover of a fit out for the hairdresser in Tilehurst, completed in a record nine days last year.

This latest project was undertaken by Saracen Small Works, for Forresters, and was finished in just ten days, with minimum disruption to staff and customers. Works included the removal of old fixtures, furniture and flooring; the fitting of new ceramic floor tiles, bespoke cupboards for storage, display shelving and partitioning; the installation of LED lighting panels and plumbing works for new wash basins and a tea point; and painting and decorating to refresh the interiors throughout.

Owner and director of Forresters, John Forrester comments: “We didn’t consider any other fit out expert having worked so successfully with Saracen last year. The team’s delivery is second to none; they understand the pressure we’re under to keep a business such as ours as accessible to the public as possible and they are prepared to give the project their all to make sure that it is finished as quickly as possible. Added to that, they perfectly understand our brand and vision. We know we’re in the best possible hands with Saracen.”

Director of Saracen Interiors, Michael Page adds: “Our Small Works division has gone from strength to strength in the last few years and it’s great to be in a position where we are now enjoying such a high percentage of repeat business. We have adopted a policy that every job is of equal importance, regardless of size, and this ethos is integral to how we work and is shared by every member of staff. As a result, the team is sympathetic to the needs of all clients and is adept at identifying and understanding potential issues on each and every project.”
