Challs International offices in Hadleigh was devastated by fire in 2014. The Challs Management turned to Source One to work on the high profile project to rebuild the offices with a brief to create an office for the future.

Source One were commissioned, after recommendation to MD Graham Burchell, to provide the full interiors fit out of the offices and visitor centre at the newly rebuilt warehouse site.

Lisa Lewis, Director of Source One comments,

We were delighted to be involved from early on in the project, even before the first bricks were laid, with the brief to create an exciting and innovative interior.”

As always the process began with detailed discussion about what Graham and his team wanted to achieve, then with input from us, our interior designers and the space planning team we created 3D designs to bring it to life.

After consultation, the final layout was optimised and we then worked with Challs on selecting everything from flooring and specific furniture to fabrics and finishes to create the look and feel that we have today.

Part of the process included working alongside a flooring manufacturer to create a bespoke design for the flooring in the building: a mixture of tiles and specialist coverings.

The project for both the new offices and the visitor centre were handled alongside each other to ensure both premises were ready for ‘Opening Day’ Once the designs were finalised, Source One managed the fit out of both buildings utilizing our experienced trades and fitting teams.

Patrick Lewis MD of Source One added:

I’m delighted that Graham and his team love their new premises. Feedback from Challs has been great and you can feel that in his comments below. To be involved in such a ‘forward thinking and future proof ‘project has been very rewarding for us all, both individually and as a business".



Graham Burchell, Managing Director of Challs International at the opening on the new buildingGraham Burchell, Managing Director of Challs International Ltd. said:

From the very beginning of this project we had a very clear vision of what we wanted the interior of our wonderful new headquarters to look like.

We wanted a new building that reflected us as a business: a team with family values that are innovative and forward thinking.

The building incorporates some of the latest technologies and eco-friendly features and is a solid foundation on which we continue to grow our business in the global marketplace.

Our vision was for this to be a building for the future in terms of both technology and style.

Source One have been a key member of the team to delivering just that. The building has exceeded all our expectations and all the staff are absolutely loving it.

It’s amazing how much the building has transformed the business. Thank you, Source One."
