Aspect Software, London
Project Managers often appreciate our ability to provide quick and reliable budgeting information for their clients, so when Cushman & Wakefield were appointed by Aspect Software to design and deliver their fabulous new offices in a historic location, it was natural that they approached us.
What We Did
Aspect were concluding negotiations to take one of the first office floors available in the prestigious redevelopment of The Old Vinyl Factory; previously HQ and manufacturing hub for EMI records.
The clever design by Cheryl Whitfield incorporates much classic pop history iconography; this was not going to be an 'ordinary' office; nor was it going to be another 'sea of white desks'! Great value was another consideration, so we had to bid with a core product that offered a great look and feel, extensive finish options and excellent cable management; we selected UK manufacturer Alchemy - even the name seemed appropriate.
After a formal bidding process issued to three independent furniture specialists, we were appointed to specify, order and install all furniture and loose fittings; it seems we got the balance just about right.
Installed in January 2018, this was a very smooth project with little snagging; both Aspect and Cushman & Wakefield were impressed by our professionalism and organisation, as well as the quality of the completed office.
Who We Worked With
Cheryl Whitfield of Cushman & Wakefield was very much the project lead in terms of furniture specification. The outcome is largely the result of her very pragmatic, inclusive approach that got the best from both client team and supplier. Thanks are due also to her colleague James Shipp, the main Project Manager.
Ben Green of fit-out specialists Denton Associates was the site project manager; our thanks to him for his co-operation and assistance during the furniture installation period.

What our client said:
“We had a fantastic relationship with you; the level of your support and attention to detail was second to none. Steve was on the ball and engaged without delay on all questions asked and requests made. On the final installation, both Steve's and David's level of detail was superb and worked clearly as part of our team. Thank you!”
