Canary Wharf Fit-out, London
Client: International Professional Services Firm
The building is located in the Canary Wharf and was for a new research centre for an International professional services firm.
The works involved creating a very dynamic and open plan office area supported by a variety of flexible spaces with integrated Audio Visual technology forming a very important part of the design.
The works comprised of incorporating the existing services where possible and enhancing the original basebuild services to create a flexible working office environment. Both the existing electrical and mechanical plant was modified to suite the new architectural proposals. The building was fully occupied on the remaining floors throughout the duration of the works and required close liaison and detailed negotiations with the landlord and existing tenants throughout the works regarding the existing basebuild services and systems
The works included a new main reception, flexible meeting rooms and a new kitchen area which included a folding partition system to provide space to create a large open plan area for staff presentations. The remaining floor space included a number of one to one meeting rooms, offices and open plan office space.
