“The refurbishment programme had to be carried out while the client operated a ‘business as usual’ policy.”
The fit out project
Watson Farley & Williams are an international law firm with a varied portfolio covering finance and investment, maritime and energy, natural resources, transport, real estate and technology. They wanted to refurbish their existing offices located in the heart of the capital’s financial centre, to provide a first-class workplace design and facilities for their 300-strong workforce.
Design practice Scott Brownrigg provided architectural services on the project and BW’s Construction Manager Paul Taylor led the 70,000 square foot fit out. With more than 22 years’ experience in the construction industry, Paul has worked on various commercial and management roles for the UK’s largest fit out specialists.
The redesign and refurbishment featured a new restaurant, conference room, and audio visual and video conferencing. The refurbishment programme had to be carried out while the client operated a ‘business as usual’ policy. BW created an efficient programme and construction strategy that adhered to the client’s needs while causing minimal disruption to the workplace.
The outcome ensured that the client’s core business operations areas and facilities were vastly improved. Through BW’s passion for teamwork and delivering projects to the highest standards, the client’s expectations were exceeded.
