The Client
After working with Broad Gate’s developer Highcross to promote the space, Ben Johnson Ltd were taken on by The Consulting Consortium to develop a scheme that suited their timescale, budget, and growth plans.

The Brief
Following a period of feasibility planning our team were able to produce a scheme that fitted both the client’s expectations and the space’s limitations. TCC were keen to avoid costly alterations to the Cat A fit out, particularly M&E, and due to the nature of their work were particularly concerned about levels of confidentiality in the main boardroom area. Strong branding was also an important element to incorporate into the design.

The Solution
Designing to a budget, Ben Johnson worked with the client through a process of space planning, 3D visualisation and pilot furniture workstations.

Boardroom and offices were positioned where they would cause minimum interference to the mechanical system. Confidentiality within these spaces was increased with the use of double-boarded solid partitions, incorporating sound blocker board within them. Sound transfer was further reduced with the use of horizontal quilt in the ceiling void.

Corporate branding was integrated into the scheme with feature carpets creating designated walkways, and the company logo applied to the office manifestation. Large scale graphics were also applied in the reception/waiting area and attention was paid to the tea point design to give the employees a comfortable space away from their desks.

Ben Johnson helped us to complete an 8-week build programme within a 5-week timescale. We now have a superb office that meets our current and future needs, creates a professional look and feel which embodies all that we as a business stand for.
