RIVERSIDE MEDICAL OFFICE MEZZANINE FLOOR
Full design and build solution for Riverside Medical based in Derby
Riverside Medical provide packaging consumables, equipment, and standalone services to the medical sector. Based in Derby, and due to expansion, they needed an additional warehouse to accommodate the distribution arm of their business. After locating a brand-new industrial unit on Dunstall park road they were faced with the problem most businesses face – fitting out the space. The team at Riverside medical required a turn-key solution and begin interviewing companies who could design and fit out the office space for them. The project was a blank canvas, and they required a company suitable to design and fit out offices, kitchens, WC’s Meeting Rooms, Archive areas and server rooms.
Initially the team at Riverside Medical approached an architect to design up the space and create a tender document for them so they could go to market and obtain quotations. At this point they approached a few companies including Nexus Workspace. We evaluated the specification document and asked if we could offer alternate solutions utilising products we were familiar with. One of the key alterations we made from the initial specification document was the mezzanine floor itself. The architect had specified a standard mezzanine floor, but after our intial site survey it was clear that the building was designed to have a mezzanine structure bolted directly into the structure. We contacted the developer and designed the steel to suit the building. This eliminated a lot of columns and has resulted in a much cleaner design. From this base we designed the office space following the initial design tweaking a few areas where cost effective alternatives could be offered.
“Working on this project has been incredibly rewarding. The initial brief provided to us was thorough but applying our own stamp has allowed us to provide Riverside Medical with a solution that not only looks great but offers incredible value for money”. MATHEW BARNES, NEXUS WORKSPACE
WHY THEY CHOSE NEXUS
Initially the team at Riverside approached Nexus after finding us on google. After reviewing the portfolio section of our website and watching case study videos of our previous projects it was clear that we would be a good candidate for the project.
Initially Nexus was asked to provide budgetary costs from the architect’s tender documents (which we provided) but from the outset the team at Nexus looked to provide alternate solutions to the original tender document. This resulted in a much more affordable project which never compromised on quality. This was demonstrated via teams’ meetings where we provided alternate design options, thoroughly providing explanations on why we thought they would benefit from alternate products or solutions and explaining the pros and cons of each option. This related to all aspects from the walls to the air conditioning system.
Working together we refined the design, and ultimately provided a solution that offered maximum value for the budget available. After this demonstration and the receipt of a detailed quotation document, the team at Riverside chose Nexus as their preferred contractor and the wheels were set in motion to build the project.

The project has resulted in the construction of a high-quality office block that is designed and fitted out to a high, but functional standard. The fit-out benefits from hard wearing materials which is suitable for an office and warehouse and environment. An example is hard wearing flooring coverings, chosen in anticipation of people transitioning from warehouse to office. The kitchens are modern and sleek and offer a relaxing space for staff to enjoy breaktimes. The offices are comfortable and spacious and equipped with air conditioning and external windows. Overall the office space will provide a great space for the team to work from and continue the growth plans set for the company.
