These pictures show the inside of a new £3.9m business centre in Hessle - and it looks like a very cool place to work. The design and fitting of the communal spaces inside the Ergo Centre have been done by Chameleon Business Interiors, which has recently worked on the Welcome to Yorkshire offices in Leeds. The ergo centre is set to open in June in the Bridgehead Business Park, and also plays host to Moe’s Kitchen, which offers luxury breakfast, brunch and lunch options.
Amanda Hoggart, business centre manager, said: “This is the first time the council’s Business Services Team has worked alongside an interior design company to provide a solution to give the finished product the ‘wow’ factor. Chameleon has certainly achieved this at ergo.”
A key feature of the project included an intricate flooring design using an award-winning recycled product.
Chameleon head of design, Kevin McIntosh, said: “It has been fantastic to be involved in this exciting project which should prove to be an excellent asset for the local business community.
“Our client needed us to complete the work quickly and we met this deadline to complete a successful design and fit-out in this exciting new space.”
Ergo has been developed by East Riding Council in partnership with the University of Hull.
With a focus on the renewable/low carbon sector, the centre is due to open in June 2018.
Chameleon Business Interiors, headquartered in Hull, has now completed work on office, conference and reception areas, creating a people inspired workspace for the emerging talent within the renewables sector.
As well as UK offices in Birmingham, Leeds and Newcastle, Chameleon Business Interiors also has a base in Toronto for North American projects.
The ergo centre forms an integral part of the Bridgehead business park in Hessle.
The business park has the potential to support up to 3,000 jobs over its lifetime.
Construction began on the ergo centre last summer.
The scheme was rubber-stamped by planners last February, and was built by Hessle-based PRD Construction.
As well as capital investment from the council of £1.9m, funding has been secured from the Local Growth Fund, with £1m allocated from the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, about £710,000 from the Green Port Growth Fund Programme and a financial contribution from the University of Hull.
