Office design, fit-out & refurbishment

The challenge

Interconnector UK chose to connect with Office Workspace a year in advance of their lease end date.

After a vigorous selection process, it was determined that Office Workspace offered exactly the high standards of assurance and experience, as well as the unique turn-key approach that Interconnector were looking for.

The Chief Financial Officer at Interconnector understood the importance of partnering with an all inclusive company. They were therefore glad to find that Office Workspace would not only design and build a space that worked well for them, but could manage the entire project. This ensured the minimisation of risk throughout the project, while also saving valuable time.

Interconnector UK made it clear from the beginning that their partner was required to manage and negotiate dilapidation terms, in order to minimise risk and cost with the landlord proposing a large financial settlement.

As our client, Interconnector UK had a vision to create an inclusive work environment. They were keen to incorporate more informal space for collaboration, gatherings and stand up meetings, as well as focus working areas and breakout spaces. This worked exceptionally well with their company culture, as Interconnector encourages their workforce to combine both office work and working from home on a regular basis.

The solution

We worked closely with Interconnector’s relocation team to design a space that exceeded their expectations. We carefully interpreted the cost analysis of each decision in order to maximise return on investment for the client. Our workplace consultancy and furniture consultancy ensured their new office location was a strategically designed space that enhanced productivity and performance of the workforce.

Office Workspace managed the property search and viewings, as well as detailed analyses of potential office spaces to ensure Interconnector acquired the ideal space for their specific needs. Under the lease contract terms, Interconnector was due to be charged a large dilapidation sum upon leaving their previous premises. We were able to renegotiate the financial settlement on their behalf, saving the client over £270k.

Office Workspace were given a tight deadline for completing the fit-out, ensuring that our client wouldn’t be left without an office at any point in the process. We were able to complete the entire strip out and new design installation within just 7 weeks.

Always one step ahead, we provided our client with over 80 removals crates, 12 weeks in advance of their move. This gave Interconnector plenty of time to organise and pack up their assets in preparation for their relocation efforts.

By the time it came to “move day,” we were delighted to be able to assist Interconnector as they embarked upon their new venture, as our removals team ensured everything went to plan on the day.
