This project carries its own nostalgia for us having been one of the first pitches we held over Zoom back in March 2020, just as we were thrown into a new way of working. The only challenge that this project entailed was handling everything throughout the pandemic – ensuring that our management and delivery stayed on top form at all times despite our physical distance from each other and the client.
Our project team safely visited site when they needed to, and all meetings with the client were held digitally. We had to think fast and make responsive design changes as we considered the future tenant’s need to accommodate a more hybrid way of working. We translated this into design by re-considering desk space and adding in a number of high tables to suit collaborative and flexible working. Meeting room numbers were reduced whilst more call rooms were factored into the floorplate to meet the rise in demand for conference calls.
