“Nothing was impossible; BW reviewed each issue that arose and responded with a robust solution, set expectations, and managed the process keenly throughout to ensure everyone was working towards the same goals.”
The Fit Out project
IG Group is an international leader in online trading. BW undertook a 30,000 square foot fit out of its East London offices.
The four-phase programme had to be delivered within 20 weeks and was led by Paul Etherington, Senior Project Manager at BW. Sheppard Robson provided architectural services. Each stage of the project commenced on a weekend to allow for moving staff between three floors to accommodate the works.
IG Group had a definitive budget that had to be managed. This meant BW could be innovative in devising cost effective solutions to address the various challenges uncovered throughout the project. This included making right legacy workmanship previously carried out on the offices.
The project also had a very fluid scope; with several new requests from the client introduced throughout the build. This put pressure on the budget, the timeline and BW’s commitment to delivering Defect Free at practical completion.
Each challenge was met by BW head-on; with the team working long days, every weekend and investing time in gaining the support of the supply chain – whose response was outstanding. Nothing was impossible; BW reviewed each each issue that arose and responded with a robust solution, set expectations, and managed the process keenly throughout to ensure everyone was working towards the same goals.
To help the programme run smoothly, Paul ensured excellent communication was in place with the client and their professional team and that the suppliers were kept up to date. Processes were put in place to guarantee delivery, such as formal client project meetings, a combined weekly project and design meeting, and weekly informal catch-ups between Paul and the client.
BW worked collaboratively and performed exceptionally to ensure the project journey was as enjoyable as possible for everyone involved. Through dedication, hard work and maintaining good humour in challenging situations where stress levels were high, BW kept the client pleased throughout.
Despite the challenges, BW rose to the occasion to deliver the programme on time and Defect Free. IG Group and their professional team were delighted with the outcome, and their new offices have become a beacon of style and sophistication within their sector.
