On behalf of the Trinity team we would like to thank Grant and Kriska of Conduit Interiors for doing such an amazing job of converting our workspace into a living space.
Due to all the questions that arose around retaining office space through the Covid pandemic we embarked on a project to make our office space more of an aspirational living space. After many months of working from home we all realised that our perception of the work space we wanted to live in during the day had altered and to assist us in adapting our offices we turned to Grant & Kriska.
The clarity and manner in which they took on board our requests, the conversion of this into a proposal and the subsequent project management was exceptional and made for an extremely painless and on budget experience, THANK YOU from all of us at Trinity IOT.Ross Hickey

Dealing with Conduit Interior has been nothing short of exceptional since the beginning.
What we expected when we contacted them was to have some designers that could modernize our offices. What we got was a lot more, from coming up with unique and creative designs that align with our vision to managing every step till the completion of the project. The friendly team ensure that their client is disrupted as least as possible throughout the project. They coordinate all teams that are involved, while following building regulations. Grant and his team have great attention to detail and set a high standard for themselves, often resulting in them finding snags that we don’t even notice.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with them and I can highly recommend them.Wikus Van Zyl
Grant and his team from Conduit have been an absolute pleasure to work with on our refurbishment project for our new offices and I highly recommend them. They created an awesome work space for us that was creative, professional, fun and practical, in a very short space of time. Their attention to detail, and their calm unruffled presence as they managed the whole project was highly commendable. They stuck well to time and budget and their communication in keeping us informed as they progressed was excellent. We are thrilled with the result and thoroughly enjoyed working with them.Brenda Jobling
After having worked many years with Grant and the Conduit team on smaller projects, he was tasked with transforming our new head office into a space that promoted productivity as well as enjoyment.
The existing space we received was extremely mundane and did not in any way promote any productivity or have natural light. Sticking to a tight budget, Grant and Kriska transformed these existing offices into an absolutely amazing space which mirrors our culture and image.
Even through the Covid-19 lockdown period, Conduit managed to meet the deadlines and always kept us in the loop as to the progress of the transformation. The knowledge and vision of the team from Conduit ranging from their colour choices, layouts and visual picture the best layout for natural light certainly makes our new head office a joy to walk into.
We will definitely be continuing with Conduit Interior in the near future.Asgar Dalvie

We were extremely pleased with the final result of our office refurb that Conduit Interior conceptualised, managed and delivered. For many months after the project was completed, we continued to receive compliments from visitors to our offices. We would gladly reappoint Grant and his team for any future design or refurb requirements, and would not hesitate to recommend them to our peers.Rob Baird
We were introduced to Grant and Conduit Interior in 2018 when we were looking for a Designer to provide a layout and fitting for our new office space in Claremont. We wanted a change from our existing offices – something modern, with a ‘wow’ factor. Grant and his team took the time to understand our business and our practical needs. Together with his team, he kept us informed on progress throughout the project regarding budget, snags, material options and delivery expectations.
We were thrilled with the result. So much so that we made changes in our existing office spaces to match the new area. We have had many compliments from clients and visitors, both local and foreign; and have no hesitation in recommending Conduit Interior.Cliff Warren
I had the pleasure of being introduced to Grant and the Conduit Team for the first time in 2015 when we were looking for someone to assist us with the design of our new offices in Cape Town.
As a company, we subscribe to the ethos of promoting productivity by involving ourselves in employee happiness. Our industry is characterised by fierce competition for talent. An environment that supports creativity, collaboration and flexible working practices is both a critical component of our employee value proposition and a competitive advantage.
Grant spent a lot of time getting to understand us as a business and from the first moment I saw his design concepts I knew that he “got it”. Our brief was complex with some inherent contradictions between the aspirational and practical aspects that we needed to reconcile in the final design. Grant was particularly adept at navigating us through these, producing something that was both visually stunning and very practical, all the while keeping to budgetary constraints.
In addition to the design work, Conduit Interior were contracted to project manage the office build with an extremely tight timeline and once again I have nothing but high praise for the professionalism they displayed. As things started to take shape there were many instances where we changed our minds or developed new ideas and working with Grant and the team to incorporate these was a genuine pleasure. I was incredibly impressed by the creativity the team showed in finding practical solutions to the myriad challenges that a project like this throws up as well as their wealth of knowledge and experience across all the various trades involved; I always felt like we were in very capable hands.
Ultimately the finished product speaks for itself and is a far better testament than I could ever write. Conduit have delivered something truly exceptional – a vibrant, contemporary showpiece as well as a genuine source of improved workforce productivity. Their passion, creativity and dedication made all the difference for us and I would not hesitate to recommend them for any project large or small.Larsen Lockwood-Hall

From our initial meeting with Grant Johnson of Conduit Interior, I knew we had found an interior specialist who would immerse himself in our brand and strive to create a space for us that felt like home.
Over the course of our office project, we watched our two-dimensional brand being transformed into a three-dimensional space. Grant spent energy and attention getting to know us as a team and the qualities that our brand stands for, ultimately creating a space that truly embodies who we are and what we do. Grant managed expectations and challenges with absolute professionalism and had a wonderfully collaborative approach with our operational team.

We were referred to Conduit Interior by a fellow tenant in our office building. From the first meeting with Grant, we received expert interpretation of what we were looking to do with our new space. He managed to start and complete all construction within project timelines, including meticulous attention to the facilitation of the contractor payments according to the approved budget.
What stood out for us is how amid COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, he nevertheless managed to start and complete all construction within project timelines, including meticulous attention to the facilitation of the contractor payments according to the approved budget.
The key part of the Conduit Interior value proposition is how they take great pride in their work and client satisfaction. This was most evident by how accessible Grant was after the handover, to work through any snags experienced. He handled this with equal care and attention to detail.

What made the job particularly challenging, was that the space was very industrial, low spec warehousing to start with. Our requirement was for an upmarket outcome.
We can say that our challenging project has been completed in great style, on a fairly tight budget. Certainly, well below the budgets quoted by other large design companies in the market. Much more than we expected was achieved and delivered on – always with great professionalism, dedication and attention to details. Further, the total costs amazingly came in within budget.Andrew Hume

The combination of creativity, proactive attitude, and the overall concept meant that Conduit Interior was the clear choice for our project. From the moment the project began, they exhibited a wealth of knowledge, and exceptional organisational skills and professionalism.
In addition, with any such large-scale project there are unforeseen changes and obstacles, and all of these were met with understanding and a clear plan to adapt accordingly.Catherine Passmore
With the site unseen by Grant, just a plan started the project; then the info started streaming in with photo-like visuals that were so up my street it was uncanny! Every detail had been thought through; him being in Cape Town was no issue.
The end result is an awesome work space with a new upbeat feeling in the office and work spaces that are private, fun, exclusive and just bloody beautiful! Well done Grant, thanks for the influence you have had on our working environment. We are loving it and am sure we will for many a year to come.Andrew Line
