‘providing the flexibility to have a life outside of work’

Garden buildings are becoming increasingly popular, particularly for office use, as people now expect to be able to work flexibly for companies due to the possibilities offered by high-speed broadband access. Remote working is a more sustainable arrangement in the long term, especially for those commuting and is particularly compatible with achieving a better quality of life - people do not have to get up every day at an unearthly hour to leave home and then travel back again.

Whether working remotely or running your own business from home, a separate work environment is essential. Physically, it’s easier to prevent others invading your workspace. Psychologically, it marks a clear difference between where you live and where you work.

‘a truly bespoke solution to your needs’

Many companies are providing standard ‘pods’ to satisfy this growing market, which are usually restricted to several floor layouts and a particular construction method with limited options for finishes. Mark Nelson Micro Architecture provides a truly bespoke solution that is not restricted by the standardisation of a pod – all designs are site specific, based on the client’s individual requirements and are not tied to any specific construction type, product or material.

A rigorous analysis is undertaken of your working practices, to ensure our proposals make the most effective use of the space available to successfully accommodate all your required work areas and associated equipment.

We provide a full design package that includes technical drawings, specifications and material quantities to enable you to either tender the project to suitable contractors or undertake/manage the project yourself. Alternatively, we can project manage the construction phase on your behalf, where we will organise materials, recommend suitable tradesmen to undertake the work and monitor the quality of their workmanship. A full interior design service can also be provided as part of our commission.
