Money where its mouth is
Reynaers’ new headquarters in Hollymoor Way, Northfield, represents a £6 million investment – the new premises have been extended and completely refurbished, giving more than double the warehouse space and a modern, purpose-built facility.
Martin Rennie, from D5 Architects, designed the new HQ. He said: “It was a real opportunity for the building itself to become a showroom for Reynaers’ products, and we emphasied this through the design of the glazing.”
Justin Hunter, managing director at Reynaers, said: “We’ve moved into the offices after an extension, complete refurbishment and refit of the interiors of the original building, meaning we are now able to double our current capacity. The envelope looks fantastic and features the new Hi-Finity corner solution, structurally clamped curtain wall and parallel opening windows.
“The building of our new UK Head Office and warehouse is a significant milestone for us as a team, and also for our customers who have supported us over the years. The building will act as a springboard to further growth, as it will provide us with much-needed space and fantastic new facilities, which will serve us for many years to come.”
The premises will house a dedicated showroom featuring Reynaers’ commercial, trade and high-end domestic products, various meeting rooms and bespoke conference facilities for up to 75 people. There is also a new training centre and new installation rig, designed for development, training and testing.
