International law firm, Watson Farley & Williams (WFW), has appointed BW to deliver the fit out and refurbishment works to five floors at their London headquarters near Liverpool St.
The enhanced facility will create a staff restaurant to previously unused atrium space on the lower ground floor and upgrade all finishes, fixtures and staff facilities on the four office floors.
In delivering this project, BW must maintain a fully functional office via a series of partial possessions and temporary relocations with no disruption or impact to the WFW business. WFW needed a partner who was sympathetic to its needs as a fully functioning law firm, possessed the necessary strategy to ensure a completely flexible approach with regard to programme and sequencing of the works to each floor.
Steve Elliott, CEO at BW who is leading the site team for WFW, comments:
“Due to the complex nature and inter dependency of each working phase, BW has ensured that the delivery sequence maintains all current operational facilities and minimises staff disruption. From the existing restaurant and catering facilities being open to staff for a longer period than first envisaged by WFW, to ensuring single moves for staff members where at all possible, BW is striving to ensure a potentially disruptive project is delivered with a minimum of fuss.”
