Having assisted this intergovernmental science organisation with the development of their UK HQ for the past seven years, our remit has expanded to include their new European office as well. This includes the added challenge of achieving a comparable level of quality for the two very different UK and European projects.
We have been alongside the client on their journey towards a modern collaborative work environment for their expanding workforce from business strategy, brief writing, site negotiations through to consultant selection and technical advisory during the design development.
This world-leading centre’s 1979 purpose-built facility – originally built for 155 staff – is now bursting at the seams with 360 staff from more than 30 countries. As the building is reaching the end of its useful life and further expansion on the way, we were asked to develop tailor-made workplace practices for this client to be applied to any possible office options.
With two building offers now on the table, we continue to help with negotiations, scrutinising against the intended client’s requirements as proposals are evolving.
