Space Group Welcomes Rob Yorke to the Space Interiors Division

Rob Yorke has recently joined Space Group and comes with a raft of experience after an extensive background in the construction industry.

Having previously worked with Space founder Mike Mellor on a range of past projects, Rob had a good working knowledge of Space Group, its values and vision.  He felt Space Group and the company’s plans for the future were an exciting prospect and something he wanted to be involved in.

Rob’s construction experience has spanned 30 years’ working across all aspects of building including houses, commercial developments and refurbishments.  With previous clients ranging from local authority, the NHS and colleges, to the private sector and partnerships with architects.

Heading up Space Interiors, Rob’s role is to implement and manage construction of projects ranging from office fit outs to front of house foodservice and dining areas.  Construction work in these areas generally includes fitting out serveries, walls, floors, M&E and ceilings.

Rob says “One of the things I enjoy most about this work is watching a project grow from a brief and initial concept to finished venue, and with Space’s regular full-service turnkey developments I get to be involved in that every day.  I look forward to working closely with the team here and our subcontractors to continue delivering quality, affordable projects on time and to brief.”

Welcome to the Team, Rob.

When the floods came we took to the river…..well…….canal!

In 2008 the floods came! But that didn’t stop us from attacking the river in our open canoes. As it turns out the river Wye was more like the Amazon during rainy season and because of safety we ended up on the nearby canal! There is nothing like relying on pure arm power to canoe 10 miles on a non moving canal!

Space go wet and wild in 2007

This year we decided that we would step out of the comfort zone and try something new. North Wales was the venue and water was the key ingredient!

A decade in business, surely an occasion worth celebrating in style

Hilston Park Estate in the West Midlands was the scenic setting for our black tie dinner. Topped off with a pianist and silver service catering , finished off with a fireworks display!
