    A historic building in the heart of Sandiacre, Pear Tree Yard, has been renovated by local office fit out and refurbishment company, ACI (Advanced Commercial Interiors) Limited.
    Pear Tree Yard is well known throughout the local community and had been left vacant for the past three years, allowing the property to fall into disrepair. Dating from around 1780, the property has been used for a host of purposes from a spinning mill to a veterinary surgeons and predates the famous Springfield Mill and canal.

    Having outgrown their existing office space in Sandiacre due to continued expansion, ACI were keen to stay close to their roots and wanted to continue to reap the benefits of being close to the main transport links of the A52 and the busy M1 motorway.

    After laying unoccupied for three years, the property was in a poor condition and, despite having all of the necessary planning permissions, had not attracted attention from local developers or businesses.

    After an initial planning period of three months, the building project took 18 months to complete, with the first year dedicated to carrying out structural improvements, reinstalling a roof onto the property and working on the windows to provide a beautiful view of the canal.

    The remaining six months were then used to focus on the internal state of the property and ensuring that a building fit for purpose in the 1700’s was able to deal with the demands of a modern working environment in the 21st century.

    Now a fully functioning office space featuring all the ‘mod cons’ completely alien to life in the 1700’s, ACI have also refurbished the ground level to provide additional meeting space and sales rooms. We also provided one area of the office for a local business, Imaginaire Digital. Managing Director of ‘Imaginaire Digital’, Seb Dean is one of these, “We consider ourselves very lucky to have been able to move into the office space at Pear Tree Yard, providing the ideal home for our digital marketing agency. The standard of the offices is second to none and we know how much work has gone into creating such a nice workspace. We feel that it’s one of the best commercial buildings in Nottinghamshire and we’re proud to be part of it.”
