Premier Storage creates contemporary office space on mezzanine floor

Premier Storage and Office Solutions, an innovative design and build company from Doncaster, has completed a fabulous £26,000 refurbishment of what was previously a warehouse unit for direct mail and print/data management company, Propack in Huddersfield.

Creating a mezzanine floor to take advantage of space in the warehouse, the Premier Storage team took only 15 days to create sleek and modern offices, using a specialist partitioning system made by Komfort Partitioning Ltd.  The angular style of the versatile Komfire 75 system gave Propack the contemporary look it wanted, whilst at the same time offering an excellent, functional office and meeting room space.

Premier Storage sales manager, Tara Gough, says “We used the Komfire system as I feel that it is the best product on the market in terms of quality of materials, installation simplicity and value for money. Of course we had some stiff competition, but our ability to complete the whole installation in a tight timescale and fit in with Propack’s schedule, as well as our competitive pricing, were key to our getting the job.

We erected the mezzanine over a weekend to cause minimal disruption to Propack’s business and the finished product is testament to ours and Propack’s ability to adapt and move forward with daily challenges.”

Propack said “Tara and the Premier Storage team were of great help during the planning stage.  Their assistance and knowledge during the planning identified that they were going to be our preferred partner during this project.

Propack is a 24hour production facility, so a key part of this project was that disruption to production should be the absolute minimum. The project management skills of Tara ensured that this requirement was met and the building was completed on time and within budget.

We are very happy with the end result: the quality of build is outstanding. The additional space and working environment created is invaluable to our sales team as we grow our business. I am certain we will be working with Tara and Premier Storage again sometime in the future.”

Meet…. Tara Gough, Premier Storage’s sales manager

Tara Gough is the sales manager at Premier Storage and has around 10 years’ experience of working in field sales, account management and sales administration.

Tara Gough, sales manager at Premier Storage

Tara Gough, sales manager at Premier Storage

She joined Premier Storage early in 2015, initially working in the sales administration office, but quickly progressed into her role as sales manager, which she has now held for over a year.

Tara’s role, however, involves a lot more than just sales. Of course she looks after her clients’ accounts – and they include some industry giants such as furniture retailer DFS and online plumbing specialists Victoria Plumb.com – but she is also extremely hands on! Dealing mainly with pallet racking, office partitioning and mezzanine floor contracts, Tara carries out her own site visits and creates the job specification, CAD drawings and quotes from the surveys she carries out herself.

Tara takes real pride in her work and the accuracy it demands and she gets a ‘buzz’ from making sure every job she does is perfect. “Even a millimetre error in measurement can put the whole job out” she says. “I really enjoy every aspect of the job, but, like any sales person, closing a great deal and then delivering on every aspect of it to the client’s satisfaction, has to be the most exciting bit!”

Tara’s client, DFS, says: “I find Tara to be most helpful and polite. Using her knowledge, she has continued to deliver DFS with 100% effort/time on each of the site projects we issue, giving us the confidence to place our orders in the knowledge that she can meet the tight delivery time slots. Keep up the good work!”

When not a work, Tara’s main passion is animals – rather like many of the Premier Storage team! Tara has been riding since she could walk and currently has a 23-year old warmblood horse called Baron – and at 17.3HH he’s quite a gentle giant. She is also raising her 1 year old Belgian shepherd dog called Rio. She’s clearly got her hands full with those 2!

Tara likes to keep fit too – and do what she can to help Dementia UK (a charity close to her heart as she lost her grandmother to the illness this year. She is currently getting into shape to do the Santa Dash in Doncaster in December this year and will take part in the Sheffield half marathon in April next year – both in aid of the charity.
