Built with personality


Inspiring
workplaces

BW: Workplace Experts was founded in 2001 by a couple of innovation-minded individuals determined to shake up the fit out sector. Our determination to do things differently is still what drives us almost twenty years later. We want to escape the age-old beliefs of more traditional companies, especially in our commitment to completing all projects without snags, or what we term DF@PC or Defect Free at practical completion.

Today, 250 people, who all share an intense curiosity to do things different, make up a fiercely independent BW. What is immediately obvious about BW is that the personalities of our experts shine. We believe that our people do their best work possible when they bring their whole personality with them. Anyone that is curious and driven to achieve the highest standards is always welcome in our company.

Built with
Care

What makes a successful fit out project is how everyone responds to the challenges. The work we do is complicated, requiring the close collaboration of experts from many different disciplines. It isn’t possible to eliminate the risks posed during complex projects, but through collaboration we can identify and lessen their impact. What matters is the care that is brought to dealing with the inevitable challenges.

The end of a project is a celebration of what we’ve all achieved to get to a unique and inspiring outcome. But that’s not where the journey ends, the support for our clients and consultants continues as an essential ongoing relationship. Our aim is to build a portfolio of relationships with like-minded companies who also care.
