One of our blue chip financial clients approached us to provide a D&B solution to refresh their aging floor aesthetics and upgrade the M&E services. The client wanted to create more agile workspace to provide collaboration areas and hot-desking throughout the floor plan.
Metropolitan carried out a full design including space planning and architectural 'look and feel' boards. The agile working environment allowed the client to allocate more staff to a smaller floor area by allowing people to work remotely for part of their week. Metropolitan designed the new office layout with new furniture layout for hot desking, more collaborative work areas and quiet spaces. The existing lighting was replaced for new LED's which had a new lighting control system installed and all VAV units were overhauled to install new fans and repaired where necessary ensuring all controls were functioning via the BMS. All partitions and joinery were removed and replaced with new glazing and bespoke joinery respectively. All floor finishes were replaced to provide a much nicer aesthetic, as well as carrying out decoration of the whole space and new signage. All opf these works were completed in a phased approach by decanting half of a floor at a time and moving to a swing space area on another floor. The initial floor created so much good press that a further 6 floors followed.
