Furniture project value – approx £1.2 million
Quintiles are a leading pharmaceutical company and they took 120,000 sq ft at Green Park, Reading in order to gather 700 of their UK staff into an inspirational European HQ in keeping with their impressive global business.
Working alongside the fit out contractor within a programme of just 10 weeks from appointment to furniture completion, Stage 2 involved helping select loose furniture to suit the budget and programme, while still within the spirit of the designer’s concept.
They looked to prioritize space for collaboration, giving over the whole ground floor to a variety of meeting, video conference, restaurant and other informal spaces. With a need for high volumes of storage and individual rooms for concentration, careful attention was given to maintaining light and openness on the remaining 4 office floors, with inviting breakout facilities on each floor.
A proactive approach to working with the consultant team including Scott Brownrigg Architects, Cushman & Wakefield and Overbury resulted in a great performance for this client and an excellent on-going service relationship.
