Henry Boot Construction were awarded the redevelopment of the Visitor Centre at the Nottingham Headquarters of British game company Games Workshop Limited. Games Workshop is best known as the developer and publisher of table-top war games Warhammer, Warhammer 40,000 and the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game.

The Visitor Centre includes a new architectural pod entrance and a lifted roofline to incorporate a mezzanine floor, which is connected by two feature staircases. The project also included major alterations and extensions of retail facilities, exhibition spaces and workshop areas. New glass screens were incorporated into the Gaming Hall to separate the new shop fronts and the finished entrance is home to a real military tank.

The scheme required major alteration works, including the removal of existing finishes and the installation of a new architectural fit out. The Henry Boot Construction team were required to work considerately and with minimal disruption, as the site remained fully operational and open to staff and customers throughout the redevelopment works. The site team also needed to ensure that manufacturing activities could operate 24 hours a day.

The project was highly successful due to the high standard of finish achieved and the excellent method of delivery, and was handed over to the client with zero defects. The client felt the Henry Boot team were very approachable and that an excellent working relationship was maintained throughout, with any issues or queries swiftly addressed.

“Henry Boot Construction have developed a good working relationship with Games Workshop. I am very pleased with the team’s approach and attitude to their work during our project. Working on a live and operational site, the team have been considerate of the needs of our staff and customers. We are very impressed with the works.”
