SEC Interiors completed the office and industrial property strip-out, design and installation of stylish new office interior with warehouse storage area for e-Commerce pick and pack requirement.
Having agreed an initial five-year lease for an industrial office and warehouse facility in the heart of Hemel Hempstead, Keeto Life were provided with three potential interior design and fit-out companies by the letting agent. The initial talks led to them almost making the decision to work with another company based on price alone, however Andy Welch, managing director and founder of Keeto Life, then met with Russell Coleman, SEC Interior’s Sales Director.
Expertise and knowledge
“What made SEC stand out from the crowd was the expertise and knowledge, not only for the physical interior fit-out elements, but the legislative and regulative areas of leasing a warehouse to ensure the environment provided a safe and inviting workspace. With expert knowledge from fire safety to air particulates, Russell took the time to guide us through the whole process and explain how our vision and budget could work in reality, ensuring we were compliant, productive and provide a welcoming environment for our staff.
“Despite being a start-up, SEC Interiors treated us like we were a £10million business, nothing was too much trouble and their advice was invaluable. The design discussions also took into account our immediate requirements to get up and running with order processing and deliveries, as well as the longer term view of our business growth plans.”
Having agreed to work with SEC, the design team then devised a stylish and comfortable office layout with bespoke features such as the food preparation area which is vital for Keeto Life’s product development.
In the warehouse area, SEC Storage, part of the SEC Group, designed and installed a pallet racking storage solution to hold a combination of packaging supplies and product items. They created plenty of scope to increase stock holding as their business expands to new lines and increased volume of customer orders.
