“BW showed how eager they were and demonstrated it, they gave lots of time and helped with the buildability. They were flexible and helped us manage the client.”

The Fit Out project

When leading global fresh food manufacturer Bakkavor moved its headquarters from Paddington to the heart of London’s West End, there was a prime opportunity to create a new and dynamic 23,000 square foot workplace.

BW was part of an expert team charged with realising an exciting yet pragmatic design that supports Bakkavor’s vision to be recognised and respected as the world’s leading fresh prepared foods provider. BW’s Contracts Director Peter Nagle developed a deep relationship with the client, ensuring that BW delivered a fast-evolving design within a tight programme, while drawing upon experience gained from working on an adjacent building.

Inspired by the company’s Icelandic roots, the interior incorporated a variety of Scandinavian-influenced motifs including specialist feature artwork and designs for corporate signage and manifestation on glazed partitions. A fully coordinated furniture package, from brands including Knoll and Bene, plus the widespread use of oak furniture and wall and ceiling finishes helped further to represent the brand’s culture.

A key feature of the project is a full-size commercial theatre-style kitchen. Located in the reception area, it allows Bakkavor’s professional chef to engage with clients and suppliers and showcase their products.
