Portside are pleased to announce we are moving to new studios at 85 Commercial St. Newport. We have rented space from the building owner Everton Smith. Well known in the area, Everton runs Newport City Martial Arts which is situated on the first floor. We will be situated in the back half of the building on the ground floor.

Building renovations are underway

The dedicated studio space has been built from scratch and will include 2 rooms. One room will be used for meetings and the other being a workshop space. Everything is designed to be open plan, with details of the final layout below.

The new office space has been drawn up and designed ready for the furniture.

Portside have invested significantly in this new space, which includes all new office furniture. Access will be via the back entrance which also has drive in roller shutters for vehicle access. This is good news as we will be offering a range of vehicle graphics services as well as printing services. Drive in access means we’ll be able to apply your vehicle graphics in the dry irrespective of the weather.

Designing the space with a 3D room designer

To help us visualise the space we also used a 3D room designer which allowed us to visualise the space in our own time. It wasn’t particularly helpful but we did it anyway.

We also used a 3D room planner to get a better idea of the space.

Every aspect was measured including furniture to ensure we made good use of the space.

Above are some images from the office build which is currently on-going. We hope to be fully re-located to the new studios by the middle of March.
