Following a competitive tender process, we were appointed to undertake the fit out of KPMG’s new south coast office at Gateway House in Southampton. This expansion and rehousing would see more than 100 audit tax and advisory professionals relocate.
Having completed the successful fit out of KPMG’s offices in Cardiff Bay we had already developed an understanding of their brand and culture. The key project objectives were to deliver a high-quality space to serve the needs of in-house staff and create impressive meeting facilities for their clients, which ranged from family-owned and private equity businesses to FTSE 250 companies.
The project’s scope encompassed the design and fitting out of the open plan office space, client meeting rooms, video conferencing facilities, a bespoke catering facility for large client functions and staff breakout areas.
With a high specification M&E system upgrade, incorporating a heavy-duty AHU to serve both the catering and comms areas to take into account, this was always going to be a complex project.
