We’re proud to have completed the relocation and office fit out on behalf of ArcelorMittal. The global steel production giant has taken up space at Friars Gate in Solihull.

The 45-strong team are now fully operational in their new 7,060 sq ft office space at the building off the A34 Stratford Road.

Friars Gate welcomes ArcelorMittal with relocation and office fit out managed by KWB Workplace

Led by Adrian Southall, Director of our office fit out consultancy, KWB Workplace, we managed the whole process, including:

  • Bespoke office design, planning and fit out with new kitchen, breakout areas, meeting rooms and branding
  • Relocation and installation of furniture and IT equipment from ArcelorMittal’s previous offices at Fore Business Park, Solihull
  • Completion of dilapidations works at the previous offices to meet landlord specifications

Karen Reading, Company Secretary at ArcelorMittal said: “We’re really happy with KWB’s work and delighted to be in our new offices. They’re bright and airy, and really suit our needs. We needed a smaller space in a convenient location with parking, and this fits the bill perfectly.

“ArcelorMittal used KWB for our last move and office fit out 10 years ago and it was a no-brainer to use them again. We trust Adrian implicitly and he’s so accommodating. Indeed, he’s like a member of the team and moves the goal posts when needed.”

Adrian added: “I’m really pleased to see ArcelorMittal settled into their new base and it was great to work with them again.

“This was a complex job. I’d like to thank the various contractors for their hard work in getting it across the line and to budget.

“Previously moving Caterpillar Financial into the ground floor of Friars Gate meant we also had that experience to build on.”

John Bryce, Director of KWB Office Agency, sourced and acquired ArcelorMittal’s new office space at Friars Gate earlier this year.
