Office refurb for Warner Bros-owned games developer wraps
TMT Commercial Contractors carried out the £1.2m overhaul of TT Games’ 16,000 sq ft Canute Court office in Knutsford.
TT Games, which developed the well-known Crash Bandicoot franchise between 2001 and 2004, has been part of Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment since 2007.
The company’s office now features an area for games testing, as well as several collaborative break out and social spaces, offices and meeting rooms.
“Attracting and retaining the best talent in the gaming industry is incredibly competitive,” said Richard Heap, facilities manager at TT Games.
“We wanted to transform our workspace into a fluid environment that doesn’t restrict our employees’ creativity. The investment we have made in our offices and our people will ensure we retain our industry-leading role now and in the future.”
Stockport-based construction and design firm TMT refurbished all four floors at Canute Court.
“From the outset, we wanted to really get under the skin of the business and understand the company culture and what TT Games needed from its workspace,” said Jerome Broderick, commercial manager at TMT.
“The company’s people were central to the brief; the design needed to reflect why employees love making games, whilst creating a wide range of workspaces to support the different workstreams was also of paramount importance. The end result is an excellent example of what can be achieved when the client and project teamwork collaboratively.”
As well as TMT, the project team featured CBRE as project manager and M&E consultant.
Canute Court is owned by Carter Gem Properties, which bought it from Bridge Properties in February 2021.
