BSI previously occupied disparate floors within the 17 storey Chiswick Tower in West London and sought to consolidate colleagues across 8 consequential storeys.
The multi-national standards provider appointed McBains Cooper to design and manage the refurbishment project, which included the creation of a new employee café/eaterie on the first floor, together with an entire level dedicated to meeting and committee rooms on the 5th floor.
Around 80 workstations have been provided on each of the remaining six storeys, providing close to 500 desks, with a variety of collaborative work spaces. Sections of the shared ground floor entrance lobby and reception have also be refurbished.
“BSI understandably have exacting standards but through our collaborative working we have been able to provide a fit-for-purpose, sustainable working environment that reflects BSI’s brand and supports their reputation for helping businesses embed habits of excellence”, said Simon McNabb, Project Architect at McBains Cooper.
McBains Cooper both managed and designed the refurbishment, through the provision of a full inter-disciplinary service that included architecture, mechanical and electrical engineering, sustainability advice, (feasibility stage) project management, cost management and CDM co-ordinator services.
The refurbishment works were carried out over a period of 11 months, with BSi remaining in occupation and operational throughout.
