Decking, Fencing & Gates
Velocity Interiors have recently undertaken a large landscaping project at a Chase Bridge Primary School in Twickenham.
The works started at the beginning of the Easter holidays, and had to be 100% completed by the end of the two week break. The guys split up into smaller teams to ensure everything was completed on time.
Over 40 tonnes of earth had to be excavated before the building and decking could could commence. Sleepers were installed to hold back the existing dividing fence and the main deck installation started! Holes were dug ready for the new fencing and the old structure was demolished to make way for the mud kitchen.
The decking soon took shape along with the triage area. Along with the main deck, two smaller decks were constructed, one with a hand rail and step. All the metal fence panels and gates were fully fabricated and painted off site. This made it a simple case of bolting together when they arrived.
Along with all the exterior works, Velocity Interiors also undertook works in the school house. The works included; decorations, new carpets, and replacement of windows.
The job was finished on time and looks great. Please visit our Facebook page for further information https://www.facebook.com/VelocityInteriors

Mayfair Shoe Shop…
Velocity Interiors have recently completed the complete refurbishment of a shop in central Mayfair. Works included, laying a new herringbone hardwood floor, back painted glass display system and a raft ceiling with recessed lighting.
New bespoke oak stair treads, spindles, newel posts and hand rails were all installed to maintain traditional look of the shop.
The premises is grade II listed along with certain parts of the interior meaning great attention to detail was vital. The original chemist cabinet was french polished back to it’s original glory. The raft ceiling could only be secured to the ceiling in certain areas due to the original ceiling being listed.
The project was finish in time for the tenant to add their finishing touches before the grand opening!
Gallery Shop Front…
Velocity Interiors working in conjunction with the Interiors Group have successfully completed the installation of a new shop front for a prestigious art gallery just off of Oxford street. A lot of time was spent planning the logistics of the job to ensure minimal disruption to traffic and the public.
The project was over a two week time scale, it was absolutely critical to meet this deadline as the client had a new exhibition starting two days after handover and needed time to dress the area. A spider crane was used to lift the 450kg glass panels onto position where we had a team of fixers ready to secure them in. Once the windows were in, the building fascia was cladded in black painted Aluminium panels. The top had the client’s logo and building number fret cut out and back lit behind.
Along with the new shop front, Velocity Interiors also painted the entire gallery, serviced and cleaned the air conditioning system, built new bulkheads, built out walls to hide existing services and installed a new ramp to meet DDA guidelines.

Velocity Interiors undertake a complete office fit out in Aberdeen…
When a high end recruitment company announced a new office in Aberdeen, they looked no further than Velocity Interiors to carry out the interior fit out. Velocity Interiors have a long standing relationship with them and were perfectly setup to carry out such a project.
The process started off back in July 2013 whilst lease negotiations on the premises were ongoing. Velocity Interiors drew up various space plans to accommodate all of their requirements. As time went on, the plans were finessed to make the best use of the space both ergonomically and aesthetically, whilst all the time fitting perfectly into their unique office look.
Once the lease was signed in October, Velocity Interiors were ready to go. Accommodation was booked, materials ordered and site operatives ready for a few weeks in Aberdeen! There project kicked off on a six week timescale, taking it through to the middle of December. All the site operatives put in the hard work and there was never any doubt they wouldn’t make the deadline on time. There’s no denying the project put the office staff under pressure sourcing materials in an unfamiliar location, but they have built up vast directory over the past several years it wasn’t too much for them to handle.
The project required many various elements, here are just a few successfully installed by Velocity Interiors:
Raised floor, wall insulation and lining, solid plasterboard partitions, glass partitions, hard wood flooring, vinyl flooring, tea point, electrics, data and welfare facilities.
