Blueprint's Facelift for Chamber

Bondholder Blueprint Interiors has given a facelift to the new head offices of fellow Bondholder East Midlands Chamber.

The firm was tasked with transforming the empty office block in Chesterfield, into modern, open-plan workspace which will house East Midlands Chamber and its 90+ staff.

The 4-week project saw Blueprint develop the concept, design the two-storey, 13,000 sq ft space, source the furniture, materials and equipment and then carry out the refurbishment and fit out.

Blueprint incorporated the Chamber’s three main brand colours – red, green and blue – into the overall design, as well as providing modular workstations to make use of the open-plan space, and creating several innovative storage solutions.

Scott Knowles, the Chamber’s Chief Executive, said:  “We are very happy with the result and with the service we got from Blueprint.

“Chesterfield was the oldest and most run-down of all our offices, now it is our most modern, with great flexibility, a good mix of meeting rooms that members can hire and areas where people can work away from their desks.”

Rob Day, managing director at Blueprint Interiors, added: “We are a proud patron of East Midlands Chamber and were delighted to work on this project to create the modern, open and attractive workspace the Chamber needs."

Bondholders' Collaboration Nominated for National Award

Bondholder Purpose Media has been nominated for an award for its work on fellow bondholder Blueprint Interiors’ new website.
Purpose Media was appointed by office design and fit-out firm Blueprint earlier this year to develop its branding and presence online. The project has been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Digital: Website’ category in the 2016 Drum Cream Awards.
The awards, organised by marketing industry magazine The Drum, aim to recognise the very best creative advertising and design talent across the Midlands, East, South West and Wales. The winners will be announced at a gala awards evening in Birmingham on 16 November.
 Purpose Media managing director Matt Wheatcroft said: “We’ve had a fantastic year at Purpose Media, after doubling our staff headcount and turnover and winning local and regional Chamber business awards which have put us in the running for a national British Chambers of Commerce award, so to be up for a Cream award as well is just the icing on the cake."
Blueprint Interiors creative director Chloe Vickers added: “2016 has been a fantastic year for Blueprint, we’ve streamlined our company process and brought in seven new staff to increase our offering to our clients. Our website has been critical in showcasing and celebrating our work, our process and our values.
“The team at Purpose Media has done a fantastic job in creating a website that truly represents who we are and what we do at Blueprint, and it’s great to see it receive this sort of recognition.”

It was great to collaborate with the team at Blueprint Interiors on this project to deliver a visually-stunning, easy-to-use new website which will help take their business to the next level.”
