This client was new to us. An extremely important blue-chip organisation which we had worked extremely hard to achieve a Managed Deal partnership with. A client that, we had our first opportunity to impress. A unique approach, a unique design, a challenging programme of works, one to one communication throughout the whole project and then to be told, that I was challenged with a new Main Contractor to our organisation. Paramount Interiors. A project worth some £2 million, with the possibility of three more to follow.
Paramount Interiors controlled the whole process to perfection. The design was nothing but amazing with their full team support. The Mechanical and Electrical package certainly was not as straight forward as most projects, as it involved everything: heating, cooling, lighting, power, fire alarms, AV, IT, comms room design fire suppression and more. Paramount M&E division handled all these works as above to the same perfection.
In conclusion the one noticeable approach and at a cost to them, was the united team. At every meeting you would have an attendance from the MD, Design Team, Furniture Manager, M&E Director, Contracts Manager and Site Manager. Everything covered. The one experience I will never forget as it was a first for me. When I visited the building following the completed works and with the client in situ, they asked if it was me who had headed the project, I said yes and received a round of applause. Not justified, it should have been Paramount Interiors. My overall impression took them straight to my next project and through COVID-19 they did it all over again.
Well done to all of you.
