The Swiss fund management firm GAM has consolidated their three offices into one building in the City of London after moving from St James’s where the business has been based since 1983.

The move offers an opportunity to promote greater communication and collaboration in a brighter and lighter working environment, whilst improving the overall efficiency of their London operations.

Bespoke Design for Every Room

The level of complex finishes and intersections in this client facing space required an exceptional level of co-ordination between all trades from day one to deliver the specialist finishes.

Every room within the clients meeting suite was different. Bespoke solutions had to be found to integrate the AV, feature fabric lighting and ceilings and all other services to deliver this high-quality design working environment, whilst improving the overall efficiency of their London operations.
