Back to where it all began...

This year we celebrate ten years of designing and creating great places to work by teaming up with the company that offered us our first professional contract under the Absolute name back in 2006.

2016 has proven to be an eventful year for us all here at Absolute.

Not only were we flattered to be crowned 'Re-fit and Refurbishment Company of the Year' at the Insider Yorkshire Property Awards, but we also celebrated the ten year anniversary of us designing and creating great places to work.

The Absolute story started back in 2006 when Managing Director, Phil Brown, landed the company's first professional contract, fitting out and furnishing the Grade A office space at Capitol House that had just been acquired by the UK’s leading protection broker, LifeSearch.

Just as we were getting ready to celebrate our ten years of business in 2016, LifeSearch were on the lookout for a new office space to accommodate the expansion of their team.

The Leeds based firm agreed a lease on the fifth floor of Broad Gate on the Headrow before seeking our help with the fit out and furnishing of their new space.

We were thrilled to be approached for the project as it was such a fitting way for us to celebrate our ten years in business by returning to our first ever client.  

LifeSearch's new office space comprises many features of modern office trends.

The works at Broad Gate are now complete, providing the LifeSearch team with a modern, open-plan office incorporating small meeting rooms, a training room, benched workstations, soft furnished breakout spaces and a kitchen area with a view of the city skyline.

Thank you to Shaun, Hannah and all the team over at LifeSearch for giving us this opportunity to work with you for the second time and for being a fantastic client to Absolute.
