TT International 62 Threadneedle Street
This project involved the fit out of two floors to CAT B specifications in 62 Threadneedle Street for a hedge fund company. The office fit out included traders open place desk areas, client meeting rooms, conference rooms, canteen and break out areas. The staff floor areas are over two levels and linked with a feature staircase with specialist lighting.
The specific challenge for this project was its immensely fast track programme as the client planned to be in occupation within 16 weeks from appointment of the design team. To allow this to happen, Elementa ensured specific attention to efficient communication was undertaken between stakeholders and the design team. This included challenging the brief to guarantee the design was what the client wanted and therefore ensure no major future changes which could risk project delayment.
Intended originally as an Employer’s requirements package for the design and build contract, Elementa agreed to accelerate their design. The design was to be at Stage 4 level in the same time period such that the contractor’s detailed design time could be saved to allow for quicker approvals and equipment procurement. With this in mind the fan coil units were able to be pre ordered from our design, again to allow the contractors to commence the early sequence strip out and MEP installation.
We undertook value engineering by utilisation of existing CAT A services in areas where the aesthetics of the interior design were not to be compromised.
